LASA Modern Filipino Food and Natural Wine

Good vibes, modern Filipino food, and natural wine. If that sounds like something you’re into, then you’ll love LASA, the Chinatown restaurant run by brothers Chase and Chad Valencia. LASA serves one of the most interesting brunch menus in town – we shared the Kesong Puti Pancakes with calamansi curd and muscovado butter, and the family-style crispy pata: a huge, crunchy pork leg that must be pre-ordered in advance. For dinner, we love the twice-cooked pork belly with coconut and kabocha squash puree, and the kesong puti fritters with hachiya persimmon and muscovado cream.
