"Turo-Turo" literally means "point-point" in Tagalog, and that's the way it works at this tiny East Village Philippine steam-table restaurant. For around six dollars you get a plate of rice and a couple of (mostly meat) dishes. Just point to what you want and the folks behind the counter heap it on. The national and not-to-be-missed dish of the Philippines is pork adobo, an addictive blend of garlic, vinegar, soy and bay leaf.Recommended Dishes
Pork or chicken adobo (garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, and bay leaves), $9.95; longaniza (sweet sausage), $1.50 each
