51 Van Loon St Elmhurst

Queens' latest Filipino restaurant offers something not available in the area. 

Crispy dinuguan, a marriage of two Filipino dishes: dinuguan (pork-blood stew), in which the meat is traditionally braised and submerged in dark gravy, and lechon kawali, pork belly gilded from the fryer, skin primed to shatter. It's served without the usual innards (lung, intestine, heart) and the blood is gently cooked down until it’s more coat of paint than sauce, its metallic tang subdued, as reported by the NYTimes, with the following recommendations:

Daing na bangus; tapsilog; sisig baboy; sisig bangus; miki bihon; turon; halo-halo.
