Edible has published the latest reasons to check out our favorite cuisine in NYC, starting with these:
“Ube and Filipino food have been making the rounds on social media lately. Purple soft-serve and cakes made with the vividly colored yam abound on Instagram, and New Yorkers love eating at Jollibee, the archipelago nation’s famous fried chicken joint. There’s more interest in what Filipino food is and the flavors it has to offer the city.
“But this cuisine is a lot more than just another “ethnic” trend; talented chefs of Filipino descent are sharing flavors that they grew up with and love. It’s become evident now that there are more restaurants in Manhattan that are introducing a reimagined versions of Filipino food those chefs grew up with to new patrons.”
Lumpia Shack Snackbar, Flip Sigi and Pig & Khao are the delicious destinations highlighted in Beyond Ube: Where and Why to Eat Filipino Food in New York City.
