We have a theory that it’s impossible to be sad while eating Bunsoy’s crunchy lumpia stuffed with pork, shrimp, and cheese curds dunked in pineapple sauce. Though this theory does assume that you’re not actively getting dumped or thinking about the season two finale of Euphoria. Ballard’s newest Filipino spot would succeed if all they specialized in were bar snacks. But they also serve a lineup of comforting entrees too, like duck confit adobo with crispy skin and delicious potatoes. Eat it all chased with creamy purple ube painkillers in a tropical-inspired space that’s fit for catching up with a friend or sitting at the bar for a solo meal.
