Purple Yam serves traditional Filipino food (along with some Korean and Chinese-inspired dishes) in Ditmas Park. Appetizers like scallion and shrimp pancakes, and entrees like pig cheeks and snout with lime and chilies, are served family-style. While they have some interesting vegetable sides - grilled eggplant with burnt coconut cream and green mango - most of the food here is pretty heavy or fried. The casual space has booths inside and a nice backyard, both of which work well for groups.
