Save Room for the Sticky Rice at Balangay
Have you ever tried Filipino cuisine? If not, now is the time to try it at the newly opened Balangay! The menu is small but mighty, with each dish packed with delicate and unique ingredients and flavors that offer a true taste of the Philippines.
To start, try classics like lumpia (spring rolls with ground chicken, peas, carrots, and scallions), or go for the crispy pork belly with coconut tamarind sauce. If you prefer spicy food, go for the kinilaw, which is a mix of salmon, mango, red radish, and fermented chili sauce. For entrees, the fried chicken adobo is a favorite. It features chicken wings with turmeric rice, hard-boiled egg, adobo sauce, and cilantro. The chicken inasal, which features 24-hour marinated chicken with ginger lemongrass and coconut milk over garlic rice, is also delicious. Be sure to save room for dessert! Their biko dish is sticky rice with coconut, which is simple yet delicious.
