Musang used to be a Filipino pop-up operation, but now it has a permanent home inside a cozy craftsman house that we wish had a guest room. That way we could stay over, wake up, and be first in the crazy line that starts to form 15 minutes before the restaurant opens. The long wait’s worth it for their crispy pork lumpia, smoked oysters with garlic oil, and the tomato-y beef mechado stew you should have for your main course (with a side of garlic rice to soak up the sauce). If you don’t make it in when they open, you might have to wait around an hour or more for a table - but then you’ll be among friends, delicious pandan syrup-infused cocktails, and some of the best Filipino food in Seattle.
