Acclaimed Chef Alvin Cailan, founder of the popular Eggslut restaurants in L.A. and Las Vegas, has received overwhelming praise for his innovative Filipino cuisine.
Now, Food & Wine reports that he has relocated to New York. He’s in the kitchen at Chefs Club Counter, is developing a new breakfast restaurant and is re-launching his LA Filipino concept, Amboy, in New York. Equally exciting, New Yorkers can also sample a number of Amboy dishes via UberEats.
Though the menu includes several delicious Filipino favorites, we can’t stop thinking about these in particular:
Crispy pork belly with an adobo glaze. Comes with mungbeans, calamansi dressed greens, atchara (pickles), beet cured egg, scallions, and choice of brown or white rice.
AMBOY made pork sausage, rice, beet cured soft cooked egg, atchara (pickes), and calamansi dressed greens.
Seared trout and Calamansi butter sauce. Comes with mungbeans, calamansi dressed greens, atchara (pickles), beet cured egg, scallions, and choice of brown or white rice.
All the more reason to plan your next visit to New York.
