Ed. Note: I’m also hearing that folks are starting to see serious progress at the Filipino Restaurant, Bad Saint on 11th Street.
From an email:
“After a super popular pop-up at the Washington DC food incubator EatsPlace, Kalye is back! Kalye’s Filipino street food will be at the EatsPlace every Thursday, Friday, Saturday from August 7 through January 2016. To complete his visionary team and develop the original concept, Chef Red Garcia has brought Chef Paolo Eleazar to the kitchen. Kalye means street, and Garcia and Eleazar are bringing street food from the Philippines to Washington DC. Enjoy authentic Filipino food like pork belly barbeque, sisig (grilled and charred pork meat), crispy pata (braised and then deep fried pork), sizzling mushrooms, and chicken inasal (spice marinated crispy grilled wings).
Dinner will be served thurs/fri/sat from 5:30 – 10:00 PM, and the EatsPlace bar, The Drinkubator, will be open late and serve, among other drinks, Red Horse, San Miguel Light and holla-holla, our version of the shave ice dessert. Walk-ins are welcome, and no reservations. Catering is available because who doesn’t need sisig at their shindig? EatsPlace is located at 3607 Georgia Avenue NW, a block south of the Petworth metro.
