From an authentic-cooking chef who once did garlic noodles on a Man vs Wild-style "Webber" in the Filipino grasslands, this every-Thursday, Manny Pacquiao-approved popup's in stumbling-but-I'm-fine-leave-me-alone-YOUR-FACE-IS-STUMBLING distance of Uptown Oakland's Fox, Paramount, and New Parish.
Pre-Cranberries-reunion-tour-concert eats're done in woks fueled by portable propane burners in the back of the bar, and're all what the chef calls pulutan (basically Filipino bar bites), which're normally served with bevies. Nothing's over $7 from 5-8p, including creamy garlic-sauced prawns, vegan chicken adobo stix, and the Philippines' quintessential dish: ...bacon mac 'n cheese?
Oh, and if you like like the food you can actually book 'em for a catering gig; or if you don't like food at all, again, this thing's set up in a pretty sweet bar, so Bear down and order a few $5 Jameson/PBR boilermakers.
