Chef King Phojanakong’s Thai/Filipino tapas destination is one of the neighborhood’s most interesting dining experiences. A few examples from the inventive menu: drunken spicy shrimp finished with sake, kalamansi and thai chilies, deep–fried pork belly lechon kawali with atchara, steamed and fried rice crepes, kuma bolognese. Extra bonus: they deliver! Expect to wait if you are not lucky enough to score a reservation. The place is BYOB. Cash only.
