Pete Wells Double Header: Jeepney and Pig and Khao Both Earn Two Stars

Pig & Khao
NY Times restaurant critic Pete Wells files a double review this week on Filipino hotspots Jeepney and Pig and Khao, awarding his usual two stars to both and dedicating much of the review to a subject of much foodie fascination, balut. Of the two eateries he writes: "Eating at her restaurant [Leah Cohen's Pig & Khao], I felt as if I were poring over an album of carefully edited postcards from her travels. Dinner at Jeepney, on the other hand, felt more like parachuting into Manila myself. I didn’t know all the vocabulary and didn’t always know what I was putting in my mouth, but I knew I had left home." Read the whole thing here.
