2017 Place to Bring a Posse

Perla’s Kamayan Dinner

On Wednesday and Sunday nights, this minimalist dining room strips itself of its contemporary Filipino sensibilities and genteel service, puts bamboo leaves on the table, and gets down-and-dirty with a massive eat-with-your-hands feast of grilled meats, flaky fish, crispy lumpia (Filipino spring rolls), seasonal vegetables and rice—all dumped right on your table by chef-owner Lou Boquila himself.
