Village Voice's Description

Thanks to Sa Aming Nayon, a casual spot on First Avenue, Filipino cooking has triumphantly returned to the East Village. Head to the hidden back patio before tucking into hearty, home-style fare. Stick with the specials, like the Bicol Express, a pork-and-shrimp stew basted in coconut milk with a hint of chile, or the chicken inasal, grilled breast meat marinated in vinegar, garlic, and lemongrass. Other top picks include sinigang, a tangy fish soup, and pata tim, pork leg covered in glistening molasses sauce. Come dessert, don't miss the halo-halo--crushed ice, evaporated milk, sweet beans, flattened young rice, palm seeds, flan, and ice cream vie for attention in a large coupe.

Tips from foursquare

  • Metromix on 07/27/11

    The cuisine is not for the faint of tummy, so be prepared to eat with gusto, vegetarianism be damned.

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/12/11

    Go for the Pinakbet ($9.95), "jam-packed with squash, tomatoes, green beans, bitter melon & eggplant—a variety of textures and flavors ranging from sweet to sour—with a salty edge from shrimp paste."

  • Serious Eats on 08/24/11

    Must-Haves: Crispy Pata, Sizzling Sisig, Grilled Pork

  • Angela C. on 08/01/11

    They serve super fatty foods. Not for the weak stomach.

  • SkeeterNYC on 06/21/11

    Lechon kawali, fish sinigang & lumpiang shanghai were excellent.
