On a corner in Historic Filipinotown, Porridge & Puffs might look like any other daytime spot with minimalist decoration and lots of natural light. But you won’t find eggs on toast or kale salads here - just bowls of rice porridge, chewy bread puffs, and a few vegetable dishes. The people behind this place did a few pop-ups around town before going permanent, and they’re putting all that experience into practice. The porridges are fantastic, especially the one topped with five-spice braised short rib and another with chinese sausage and black eyed pea miso. It’s simple, confident food that you’ll want to keep coming back for, so we’re glad to hear they’ll be serving brunch and dinner soon.
