Village Voice's Description
What do you call a pop-up that gets a permanent home? A plop-down? It's a pertinent question for Maharlika, which went brick-and-mortar in the East Village after spending much of 2011 as a temporary, roving Filipino “moderno” restaurant. Having started as a brunch spot, it's unsurprising that the midday meals shine compared with the evening offerings (which aren't bad, but occasionally display a certain amateurishness). Try the Eggs Imelda, porridgey arroz caldo, or the tocilog ilog breakfast, which contains tender strips of 7 Up–cured pork tenderloin, garlic rice, and a fried egg. Much of the food is heavy, but isn't that why afternoon naps were invented?
Tips from foursquare
Try the crispy, chewy sisig, featuring pork belly and lesser-loved pig parts, punched up with garlic, onion and citrus. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
Recommended dishes: Sizzling sisig, arroz caldo, bangus, puqui puqui and kare kare.
Staff was super nice! Get the Kare-Kare and llongo hot tog. Soo goood.
If you aren't ordering Spam Fries as an appetizer, you are making a huge mistake.
The Longsilog is awesome and a great mix of savory and sweet. Sit by the bar and you'll get some awesome insight and tips on the food from the bartender.
