This Filipino spot started out as a pop-up in Logan Square, and now has a permanent home at Revival Food Hall. The menu is full of hits, from entrees like bagnet and liempo (which comes with delicious garlic rice and a fried egg) to their incredible mac salad and pickled papaya. We've enjoyed everything we've eaten from Boonie Foods, but want to take a little extra time to call out the sisig. The menu description is “the best thing you’ll ever eat” and we’re not arguing with that—and we eat a lot.
