This Washington-based Filipino restaurant has been declared one of the best in the U.S.

Way to go, Bad Saint.

 

 

(SPOT.ph) Having a Filipino restaurant recognized internationally is always a proud moment, we're not going to pretend otherwise. So we think it's pretty cool that Bad Saint, a Washington-based Filipino restaurant officially ranks No. 2 in U.S. magazine Bon Appetit's annual Hot 10 Best New Restaurants in America.   

 

 

Restaurant Editor Andrew Knowlton wrote about his dining experience at Bad Saint, saying that he was happy to wait, even hours, just to find out what the hype was all about. Knowlton didn’t know what to expect when he ordered the ukoy. “What arrived was a cantaloupe-size bright orange tangle of fried shredded sweet potato and shrimp. Torn with my hands, dipped into a spicy cane vinegar and chile sauce, it was as addictive as a Bloomin’ Onion but 50 times more delicious,” he says.

He enjoyed the food too much to cancel his second dinner that night, mentioning that he doesn’t usually do that. “I wanted more. Adobong dilaw, a tangy stew of chicken, turmeric, and burnt coconut—I’d never had adobo like this before.” Even the lambanog was a hit. “Contented, I sipped on lambanog, a subtly sweet coconut spirit, and thought about how lucky I was to be part of the growing Bad Saint family,” he says.

 

Way to go, Bad Saint.
