Friday Food Porn - Umi Nom


Filipino food is still pretty new to me. I had yet to go to a Filipino restaurant until I checked out Umi Nom, on the border of Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant (Bed-Stuy to Brooklynites and other NYers). Umi Nom is really more Pan Asian with major nods to the Philippines and Korea.

I just stopped in for a quick lunch and went with the Pancit Canton you see above. It's chicken, egg, noodles, soy and some fish sauce as well as some other things that I am sure I'm not catching. The most intriguing flavor was the sweet sausage. The mix of sweet and spicy in meat form is something that I don't think I've had before.


By the way, remind me to write about the fact that I have been sorta kinda but not really eating meat more lately. I'm trying to process this, but my meat eating is mostly for you, my dear readers. At least that's what I am telling myself. :)

This has definitely whet my appetite for Filipino food, and there are a few places I've got my eye on for a visit.

Happy Weekend!

That looks amazing! I don't know too much about Filipino food, but I really want to try it.

The Vietnamese have a similar sweet, cured sausage. Looks yummy. I don't think I've ever been to or seen a Filipino restaurant (or one with anything Filipino on the menu). I think it strange because the cuisine is good. I had a roommate years ago from the Philippines and there was a lot of adobo in the cooking...and interestingly enough, they usual eat with spoons rather than chopsticks. Look forward to more of your Filipino food discoveries!
