On top of that, each umami burger order comes with a complementary side of their famous Azuma Foods seaweed salad. Also check out their unique Ramen Salads.
5. Oxtail Dog, Pork Sisig Dog and more (Belly & Snout @ F28)
The Oxtail Dog, or kare kare dog, is a testament to meaty goodness. Peanut braised oxtail, cilantro, cotija cheese and crema dress an all beef hot dog, in a boston-style bun. The result of the low-and-slow braise yields a tender oxtail meat that is rich with unbelievable peanut flavor and pays true respect to the filipino dish, from which it is based.
The Pork Sisig Dog is the unofficial pulutan, or snack, of the philippines. it is a combination of pork parts, such as ear, cheek, belly and snout, that is sautéed with garlic, vinegar and aromatics. it is then draped over a grilled hotdog and topped with green onion, radish, pickled red onion, a fried egg and chicharron.
Chef Warren Almeda takes a stroll down memory lane, in this homage to his childhood favorites. drawing from his affections for fast food and love for his mother’s traditional filipino cooking, Chef Warren has taken the American staples of hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, tater tots & french fries and tuned them on their head, merging them with filipino dishes such as adobo, longanisa and pork sisig, a pan fried delight made from seasoned pork parts like (you guessed it) belly & snout!
6. The “Meat Hook” (Meat District Co. @ F33)
Meat District Co’s meat hook is known in other parts of the world as an “espetada” or hanging kebab or meat on a skewer. They are proud to introduce this unique dish and way of dining. Their dish is 10oz of succulent Harris Ranch New York, Rib Eye and Petite Fillet, with bell peppers, onions and corn on the cob with creamy pepper sauce. Served with fries and garden salad.
