Swell Dive is a surf-themed restaurant/bar in Bed-Stuy serving a small menu of Filipino/Tex-Mex foods. That means tacos with spam and Filipino-style pork - and if you’ve been drinking, we highly recommend the spam one. This place is small, casual, and good for a low-key night with friends. They have a backyard, a few nice booths, and also some board games. And if you woke up needing to drink a cocktail out of a fishbowl, you can do that here.
