Choly review image



90 W Houston St, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Step downstairs into this gilded basement on Houston when you need some sisig and kare kare in your life. Choly is the only full-service Filipino restaurant in the neighborhood, but if it feels more like a speakeasy in a train car, that’s because it sort of was. The space used to be a bar called Railway NYC, and Choly has kept the design, complete with curved ceilings and copper details. It’s still a great drinking spot—they’ve got a thing for margaritas with Pinoy flavors and are open until 12am—but we’d come hungry. While the long bar in front feels like somewhere you could meet a stranger, the cozy back dining room, where you can share chunks of crispy, fatty lechon and a plate of adobo, feels like home.
