LOS ANGELES | Los Angeles is home to the largest Filipino population outside the Philippines, so you know there’s going to be some great Filipino food in this town. When I first visited the city one of my favourite discoveries was the now closed Rice Bar. It was tiny eatery in DTLA where classically trained owner/chef Charles Olalia was making fantastic rice bowls that harked back to his childhood in the Philippines.

Olalia opened a new restaurant, Ma’am Sir, in Silver Lake in 2018 and needless to say it was on my list for when I returned to Los Angeles. At Ma’am Sir, the focus is on showcasing the diversity Filipino cuisine and the food Olalia grew up with. Ma’am Sir’s take on the classic sigsig is fantastic. Diced, braised and grilled pork jowls, snouts, ears, veal sweetbreads, and onion mixed with vinegar and fresh squeezed calamansi juice to cut through the richness. Serrano chiles add just the right amount of fruity heat. It’s served sizzling on a cast iron skillet and is wonderful.

Another highlight is the chicken adobo. Tender coconut and cane sugar marinated chicken thighs with toyo (Filipino soy sauce), roasted garlic-soy vinaigrette, and diced tomato. Served atop a bowl of rice, it’s a delicious, homely delight. Also great is the “happy birthday fried chicken”, inspired by Jollibee’s fried chicken. Tender. Crispy. Simple. If you’re still hungry, try the pork sliders with longganisa (kind of like chorizo) and atchara (pickled papaya) inside a soft Hawaiian bun.
