Not sure what to order? Choose a team favorite, the ensaladang talong, with smoked grilled eggplant, red onions, pea shoots, crispy uca flakes, and black dressing, or the chef’s special, a portabella burger with moringa mayo, pickled papaya, cucumber, and a side of purple yam chips. On the bar menu, try a cocktail with squid ink, as well as craft beverages!
