If you're looking for Asian meals in New York, you might be thinking of Thai or Chinese. However, it's high-time you get to explore Filipino meals.

Jeepney Filipino Gastropub. The name originated from the Philippines' famous ride - the WWII jeeps left by American soldiers, which Filipinos have created a more comfy vehicle for their transportation. You can expect loads of yummy Filipino dishes here like lumpia Shanghai, Bicol Express, Chixsilog or the ever well-known Balut! Jeepney also has their "kamayan" experience where people get to eat with their hands. The full-hands eat out starts at $45 for the basic package.

Maharlika NYC. Maharlika and Jeepney are "brother restaurants" as they are owned by Nicole Ponseca and Miguel Trinidad. Pinoy dishes include Chicken Arroz Caldo, Bibingka (Coconut Snack), Kalderetang Kambing (Goat Shanks), And The Tortang Talong (Grilled Eggplant). Chug down their drinks named after famous Filipino personalities like Rizal's Ruin, Lea Salonga, and Gloria Diaz. Their must-try dish is the Flip'd Chicken And Ube Waffle for $17.

Pig and Khao. The restaurant offers both Thai and Filipino dishes. So, expect dishes like the sizzling crepe Bahn Xeo, Filipino chocolate rice pudding Champorado and Sizzling Pork Sisig. According to their website, "drinks range from cheap canned beer to large format beer served Piggie style (drink out of small bowls), craft cocktails and self-serve bottomless tap in the backyard."

Purple Yam. The name of this restaurant is a reference to the root crop called "ube" in the Philippines, an ingredient the restaurant uses it for its homemade ice cream and the popular halo-halo. The establishment is also known for their great noodles like their Pancit Luglug. Have a taste of their Bihon, which consists of Philippine rice noodles with chicken, pork, and veggies, for only $10. Of course, the famous Chicken Adobo should not be missed as well.
