Filipino food is getting so much love in D.C. Ballston’s Bistro 1521. At Eater’s, it was ranked no. 8 among the places to go in Ballston for some serious eating. It has lumpia shanghai (spring rolls), adobo chicken, glass noodles topped with ground pork and smoked fish, and other traditional dishes such as crispy pata (pork leg). For drinks, it offers kiwi, coconut water, and tamarind (calamansi juice, as the Filipinos call it).
