Bravo to the folks at Jeepney! See story here. I still find it a bit ironic, but not totally surprising, that the Chef at Jeepney isn’t Filipino. If I recall correctly, his co-owner is of Filipina heritage and they both took a trip through the Philippines before setting up Jeepney, and the dishes are his interpretation of Filipino classics. Nothing odd about that really, trained chefs cook multiple cuisines from all over the world, so I guess this is just simply cool and bravo and brava to them!

This coming on the heels of the NY Times article on sisig and Filipino dishes are getting a lot of press in the international arena lately! More, more, more! :)

    Natie and Anna, but Zubuchon was already featured in 2009 before it was even named. :)

    I read the story in the link you provided and it is interesting to see that the runner up Dale Talde is the Fil-Am who competed in Top Chef before.

    Actually a one-two finish as 1st runner up, Dale Talde (Top Chef contestant) is Filipino.

    Its an interesting time for Filipino food in the states. To me its Filipino food’s 2nd coming. But unlike before where its about the dishes, today its all about the tastes or flavors of being Filipino.

    Topped with longaniza? How can it not win? As long as voting is done before repetition starts.

    O/T There are only two showbiz celebrities I care about, one of them just passed on and Michael Caine is the other. Of all the tributes and retrospective pouring in, I direct you to PBS Fresh Air’s 2006 Terry Gross interview with Robin Williams:

    The NYTimes article was written by Ligaya Mishan, also Fil-Am (note the name, Ligaya). I look forward to her weekly column on restaurants around NYC. In my opinion, she is a better writer than their top food critic, Pete Wells.

    Top burger for me so far is the one from Raoul’s bar burger. Can only ordered on the bar and it’s dipped in au poivre sauce. This burger just beat out Minetta Tavern’s black label burger for me, at least in NYC.
