Check one of New York City’s “best hidden gems”. Located on the second landing of 113 Ludlow Street, this cozy little restaurant offers a spread of Southeast Asian favorites from the Philippines and Thailand, among others.
The gastronomic genius behind Kuma Inn is Chef King Phojanakong, who operates and runs the place daily. A sneak peek of his menu makes my mouth water. Some dishes of his that I want to try out are the Steamed Mussels in Kaffir Lime-Lemongrass Coconut Curry ($11.50) and his Drunken Spicy Shrimp Finished with Sake, Kalamsi, and Thai Chillies ($10.50).
Though his other dishes are your typical Thai and Filipino classics, Kuma Inn sure has a tasteful approach. It seems like a promising restaurant that caters to Filipino food folk based in The Big Apple.
