Kusina Pinoy Bistro is a small Filipino spot with a big personality. The curbside patio at this restaurant in Woodside’s Little Manila has a DJ booth, two covered seating areas, and feels about as close to a party restaurant as you can find in the midst of a global pandemic. The food here is great, specifically the sisig, which involves pieces of caramelized pork cooked with soy sauce, giving the dish both sweet and salty elements. Order it with an egg on top and record yourself taking the first bite so you’ll have something to watch the next time you need a reminder of what happiness looks like.
