PURPLE YAM MALATE: A Taste of Reimagined Filipino Food & Revival of Malate! @PurpleYamNYC #VivaManila
PURPLE YAM MALATE is the local branch of the popular Purple Yam Modern Filipino Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. It was founded in 2007 by Amy Besa and Chef Romy Dorotan of Cendrillon fame in Soho. Its name was inspired by the owner's love of ube. :)
The Malate branch is only open on weekends for by-reservation private dining -- dinner on Fridays and Saturdays, and brunch on Sundays. The owners describe their restaurant as a "serious dining" establishment (as opposed to a fine dining one).
The opening of Purple Yam is sure to create a buzz among the foodies in Manila and hopefully usher in the revival of Malate.
Rache and I brought the boys with us to try the Sunday brunch during their opening weekend. Here's what we think...
