Porridge + Puffs (New) - Historic Filipinotown
BUT, on the inside
A slow braised short rib with jujubes and fresh five spice. Turmeric fermented mustard greens and seasonal edible flowers on top.
I was too late to get a soft egg,
as it was already sold out.
Sweet soy braised chicken, turkey and mushrooms with crispy shallots, celery pickles, scallions and seasonal edible flowers in a mirepoix rice porridge.
I opted to add a hibiscus-shiso
pickled soft egg too!
Malabar + Okra + Amaranth Porridge
A summer porridge with malabar spinach, okra Malabar-herb-coconut pistou,
Tomato-Confit, pickled okra and topped with Amaranth flower
+ morning glory tempura.
Although I loved the shortrib and poultry ones, this one was surprisingly the best of the bunch.
Unfortunately, the season is over,
so you’ll have to wait until next summer.
A savory Mochi stuffed with mungbeans, Peads + Barnett’s Pork Belly,
fig jam, Verbena dust and
grilled in a edible fig leaf.
It had a nice flavor balance and even loved the char on the grilled leaf, which complemented the mochi.
