Perfect For: Birthdays Unique Dining Experience

Just when you thought you had mapped out all the places you still needed to try in Chinatown’s Far East Plaza, here’s another one to add to your list. Lasa has evolved from pop-up to full-on brick-and-mortar and is a great place to eat Filipino food. The extremely friendly staff will happily talk you through modern takes on dishes like lumpia, arroz caldo, and inasal skewers (chicken gizzards on sticks), and it’s the kind of place that works equally well on a fun date or with a rowdy group of friends. Make sure you save room for the condensed milk ice cream.
