$15 for $25 Worth of Spanish-Filipino Fusion Cuisine
The dinner menu includes paella Valenciana, a classic Spanish dish of saffron rice, chorizo, mussels, scallops, shrimps, and chicken ($23.95; serves up to six); and Filipino specialties such as crispy pata ($11.45 for one piece) and chicken bacolod ($11.95).
Patio Filipino Restaurant
The traditional Filipino dish of crispy pata is nearly always "pure pork bliss," according to Saveur, but the version at Patio Filipino is a cut above: it's “the best I've found,” writer David Bolosan says. To create the dish, pork foreshanks are simmered, slathered with fish sauce, and then deep-fried for a crispy coating. It's a three-step process perfected by Patio Filipino's head chef, a Manila native with both Spanish and Filipina heritage. It's no wonder, then, that the kitchen incorporates ginger, miso, and other Filipino ingredients into their tapas menu. Diners can wash down these shareable dishes with one of the restaurant's own wines, or clack their empty plates together like castanets to accompany the painting of a flamenco dancer gracing the dining room.
