The restaurant will be opening this Friday. I had read about it in Bethesda Magazine when it was a pop-up in Gwenie's Pastries on Nebel Street. I went there a few times for lunch and enjoyed the limited menu. The lechon was generally tasty. There was a good quantity of moist pork. The skin was like the Golidlocks story- some was too hard, some was too soft, but most was just right. It came with lumpia and rice. I also tried the pancit. I didn't care for it- a generous amount of a lot of different things but bland. The sisig was delicious. It's described as head cheese but it wasn't a loaf- it consisted of bits of the different components- some bits were squashy, some were crispy, some were chewy, some were fatty, all stir fried with onions and hot peppers. The beef empanadas were decent. The pastry was flaky but the filling was a bit bland. The cassava cake was outstanding; I'm a sucker for eggy, condensed milky things. The staff at the pop up were very friendly and helpful. I've attached the menu for the restaurant. I'm looking forward to trying the expanded offerings. KJ Menu.pdf
