Sa Aming Nayon now open in the former Wai? Cafe space

The Filipino restaurant here on First Avenue between 12th Street and 13th Street is now open. They're also serving breakfast daily from 9-11 a.m.

I don't know anything about Filipino food. So can someone tell me about their breakfast specials, such as Cornsilog — homemade corned beef, garlic fried rice and two eggs any style ($7.95). And if you've eaten here already, then please pass along a report.

Meanwhile, work continues on Avenue B where Wai? Cafe will move one of these days.

I ate there. The food was delicious and tasted home cooked. I ate Bicol Express which is a Filipino Pork and Shrimp dish in a neon pink curry. I'm definitely planning to return.

Thanks, Mike.

I'll try it one of these days...

This part of the EV used to be the destination for Filipino food, so it's nice to see a new restaurant open up after a long Filipino exodus. Silogs are a good bet for a first Filipino experience. Longsilog is my personal favorite with longaniza sausage, but tocilog (tocino bacon) and tapsilog (cured beef tapa) are good too. I had paksiw na lechon during my first visit and am meaning to return this weekend with one of the Groupons they recently ran.
