I think I need to go here again.

Really impressed with their Kare Kare. The sauce is way better than mine (or my mother's). I just wish I ordered it cause I kept sneaking in a taste from my brother. I got the Tocino and it was ok. A bit on the drier side but I like mine with a bit more fat. If you are looking for... read more

Really enjoyed our meal here. Complementary chicken skins with sauces and vinegar before meal was a lovely touch. Pork belly special starter was delicious! Oxtail (Kare Kane (?)) was super tender. Pork ribs in soy sauce was incredible! Food is a little bit pricy. Paid $8 for a bowl of garlic rice which was a bit much but beers and... More

With the range of reviews to read I thought the need to express what a great experience we had would provide a little balance. Perhaps it was because we sat at the bar, or perhaps it's just a familiarity with what I know We would like. But everything was perfectly seasoned and prepared. The pork adobo is a must. I've...

The ambience is good, although a little crowded. Service is outstanding from the minute you are welcomed at the door until you are farewelled. Nicole, one of the owners is fantastic. The drinks are unusual but very tasty. You could love or hate the food. It doesn't matter. The experience is well worth the effort to get a booking.

Tried to get into 4 or 5 restaurants in the East Village but they all had a wait. We were seated at Maharlika right away, even though it was really pretty busy, with the host moving some things around to get us in. The drinks we great. The food was so comforting. I had the chicken in waffles and loved... More

We had a great lunch that tasted authentic from the Philippines. Don't need to speak Tagalog to order. Must try the sweet and salty cheesecake for desert.

The ambiance is good, the server was great and friendly, but I guess expected too much as I've been wanting to eat here since I first heard about it 2 years ago. I was expecting that Pata Confit wil taste extra special (than your regular Crispy Pata) but found that while it taste good, it's about the same taste at... More

Visiting NYC and had the urge for some pancit. It was a nice experience and all of the food tasted great. You are paying NYC prices so don't expect San Diego prices.

Maharlika may be a good place to meet for drinks but the food was mediocre. Oysters were not fresh, and went uneaten. Spam Fries: Too heavy, salty, greasy. Grilled Octopus: Rubbery, did not taste fresh. Sisig: Looked unappetizing. Garlic in the rice dish was over cooked. Oh well....

I've gone to this restaurant a couple of times. For dinner and brunch. Dinner is good but brunch for me was excellent. The service was also very good and waiter very friendly.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
