When she arrives at the table, she’s just so sexy: the bronzed skin, the way she looks just sitting there. Eating the crispy pata at Gaya Gaya (7580 Miramar Road) is like having sex for the first time. You can’t help but feel a little guilty about it, but it just feels so damn good you don’t really care and it certainly isn’t going to stop you.
It’s been a long coming out party for local chef Danilo “DJ” Tangalin; a story of coming full circle and integration. Raised in the Philippines on the family’s fish farm, he cut his teeth working at their turo turo restaurant. Well, actually, it was more of a food stand than a restaurant, but it was still highly impactful. In the U.S., Tangalin worked at the other end of the spectrum. Little places like Le Bernardin, Coi, Locanda Verde and Volt; fine dining all, but with not a lick of Pinoy cooking on the plates.
There wasn’t a lot of room for his heritage in those restaurants. Gradually, however, his Filipino touches crept in at places like Bivouac Ciderworks and with a bit more industry cred, he could offer a few dishes and special menus. At Gaya Gaya, however, there’s no pretense as to what’s going on, nor is there any resistance. Celebrate more at http://bit.ly/2F6Y83M
