Kuma Inn, Manhattan (Lower East Side)

So by now, we have covered nearly every type of cuisine imaginable in New York City...or have we? Well, perhaps not--we still have a few to cover, including Filipino food, and thanks to a hidden gem in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we are able to cover that right now. The restaurant we are talking about is called the Kuma Inn, and while it isn't exactly a household name in Manhattan, it is quite popular with locals and those in the know.

The Kuma Inn is set in a rather interesting location, on the second floor of tenement (which the Lower East Side is certainly famous for). The restaurant is pretty small and often packed with the aforementioned locals who love this place, so it is probably a good idea to hit the Kuma Inn either early or late if you're going for dinner. The menu features tapas-style food from the Philippines, including seaweed salad, pork shumai, grilled octopus, sauteed mushrooms, rice cakes, pickled vegetables, and steamed edamame. Most items on the menu come in at under $10.
