Great new Filipino spot with amazing crab noodles. Delicious tasty steak. Kale dish that tastes collard greens.

I wouldn’t recommend Tsismis authentic Filipino food, it definitely seemed more like an Asian fusion spot to me (menu-wise). But the ambiance was beautiful and very aesthetically pleasing.

Its a fusion type Filipino-American restaurant. Don't expect your mom's type authentic cooking of traditional Filipino dishes. What we ordered were served with a twist. Also, they are fairly new. The Open Table app "reservation" for some reason did not go through even though Open Table confirmed you have a reservation.

They have a few kinks to work out with the food and service. Perhaps our food choices were also not so harmonious. I went with a friend and for appetizers we ordered the lumpia, liempo kawali, the Green (zucchini and mushroom i think) fries, kinilaw and Jappy’s wings. For our entree we decided to split the inihaw na ribs. The lumpia was great and so were the wings but the kinilaw was a bit bland and the rest of the dishes we ordered were dry—especially the zucchini and mushroom fries. The waitresses were nice but one of them was a bit confused and seemed as if she was new to this line of work as she would put the dishes on the table as they were ready with no explanation of what it was.

To be fair, we predominantly ordered fried foods (with abandon!) so I would really like to go back and try the other dished they have on offer.

Disappointing. The dishes are extreme deviation from the typical Philippine cuisine that they lost the distinct flavor that is essential to the dishes. The halo halo is basically a melting ice cream with blueberries and watermelon. The yellow adobo is a grilled chicken devoid of adobo flavor. The crab aligue pasta is bland , no aligue flavor and very dry. Cocktails have no alcohol as they use sake as their liquor license is limited. It’s basically a juice cocktail. I have no intention of going back.

The place is a bit small but they have areas where they can accommodate big groups. Great new take on Filipino cuisine. Hope to see more exciting stuff soon!

We visited in its first week and they appeared to still be smoothing out rough edges. At the table we were placed, my partner had to get up from his seat every time the people next to us got up. There was only one bartender, so our cocktails arrived after our appetizers. Cocktails themselves were tasty though. The fried pork belly was quite dry unfortunately, would not recommend it. The fried bangus was better, though would've preferred rice with it instead of quinoa.

The vibes here are fantastic. The entrees are a very American/contemporary take on Filipino food (or the ones we had which was the adobo and the beef steak). They were good, but it didn't tickle me in the nostalgia bone like the dessert did. However their cocktails and dessert are top notch. Would recommend. Also, it didn't hurt having some Filipino grandmas gossiping in the corner.
