ABS-CBNNews.com reports that Maharlika Filipino Moderno was named the Best New Restaurant of 2012 by city guide Metromix New York. According to the report, the restaurant actually started in January 2011 as a weekend "pop-up" restaurant but "it became so successful that its owners-three young Filipino-Americans Nicole Ponseca, Enzo Lim, and Noel Cruz-decided to open (a place) in the East Village."
ABS-CBNNews.com, citing a Metromix New York write-up, revealed that the restaurant "serves dishes like longganisa hot dogs with pickled papaya and shrimp paste (bagoong) mayo, goat adobo braised in soy sauce, ube waffles, and the Filipino party staple, spaghetti with hot dogs."
The report went on to note: "Maharlika Filipino Moderno is also nominated in the Best International Eats category at the 2012 Food & Drink Awards of guide magazine Time Out New York, which highlights New York's best restaurants, bars, chefs and dining trends of the year."
