EDIBLE GLIMPSES: Purple Yam

In our magazine, Rachel Wharton takes a closer look at Purple Yam, the sublime Filipino restaurant on Ditmas Park’s up-and-coming Cortelyou Road. As she puts it, “Besa and Dorotan may have both grown up in the Philippines, but their restaurant is to Filipino food what Pies ’n’ Thighs is to chicken and biscuits, what Franny’s and the Frankies are to Italian food: kind of like your mother’s cooking, but only if she once worked the line in a four-star restaurant.”
