I recently read that Cendrillon in Soho closed and found out that Elvie's Turo Turo in the E. Village also closed. Is there anywhere to get Filipino food in Manhattan now?

    Grill 21 at 21 St/1st ave. Bayan Cafe on 45 St b/w 2nd/3rd ave. A trip to Queens or Jersey City is preferable IMHO.

    Cendrillon is opening in Brooklyn as Purple Yam soon.

      I agree that Jersey City or Queens has better Filipino food. Grill 21 had some decent fatty pork but their pancit was really kinda gross and too watery IMHO.

          I'd suggest Queens. I haven't had any Filipino except overcooked, greasy fare in Jersey City. ;(
