Filipino pride infuses the expansive interior of Perlas ng Silangan (in English, Pearl of the Orient); banners of Philippines colleges, portraits of each Filipino president, and a giant mural of Manila’s Rizal Park adorn the walls. The menu presents a broad range of Filipino dishes executed with homey flair. Tables fill with families, workers, and Filipino-American teens slurping down huge bowls of bulalo soup; a giant beef shank bone rises like a flagpole from the fragrant, salty broth; the meat is braised for hours to spoon-tender consistency. Kare-kare stew leavens a peanut butter sauce with chunks of sturdy oxtail, mustard greens, and chewy tripe; paired with a traditional, salty serving of purple bagoong (shrimp paste), it makes for a rib-sticking, sweet and salty bellyful. No visit would be complete without a pile of fried lumpia, cigar-shaped wonton wrappers filled with garlic, onions, and ground pork. At night, overseas acts take over a small stage under President Quezon’s visage and play into the wee hours of the morning, and a karaoke system lets diners belt out their favorite Pinoy pop songs.

Perlas ng Silangan offers the restaurant for parties at $20 a head, with a 50 person minimum, along with catering and delivery; call for details.
