Great food, great vibe (down-to-earth / unpretentious and casual), great service. We sat at the bar and watched them prepare everything. You could tell the guys did it for the love of their craft - each cook and the chef were so "into it." And it showed when time came to taste their creations. NO it's not real Filipino food, as "foodexpert" would call it, but they are clearly not aiming to be provigin real Filipino food. "Filipino-Thai-accented SE Asian fare" is clearly not the same as "real Filipino." And who cares that they are not Filipinos? Chef Michael White is not Italian (but rather an American from Wisconsin) yet has some of the best Italian restaurants in New York, including our city's highest Michelin-rated Italian, Marea. Does that make it bad? You ask the Michelin guide which gives it two stars.

I grew up in the Philippines and I loved Pig and Khao. It's not necessarily the most authentic, but the way that dishes were heavily inspired by the Philippines was really great. I really enjoyed the meal.
