I do not know what I ate but it was delicious.

Jeepney is Filipino food but with creative twists. We used to eat at Elvie's Turo-Turo until they forgot to pay their taxes-for a few years. Elvie's served the standard but well-prepared and very cheap Filino food. The owners of Jeepney also own Maharlika’s a more upscale Filipino place a few blocks away.

We had two ample dishes

Spicy Filipino Bangers & Mash

Well it is not sausages but their own blend to form a meatloaf. It has an boiled egg in the middle and a fried egg on the top and an extremely thick brown sauce. On the side is Kamote puree which is sweet tuber than makes a perfectmatch. The lunch special includes two tiny lumpia, their version of egg rolls, and a broth for dipping the rice.

The tastes were all different but not conflicting and most interesting.

Bicol Express
Pork shoulder in coconut milk, oil and bagoong sauce with chilis also with the lumpia, broth and rice. Once again the tastes were different but most satisfying.

The server was friendly and over happy and eager to explain everything.

We will return and try other things that are unfamiliar. The reviews say their unique burger with kamote fries is sensational.
