Those missing chef Stephan Duhesme’s modern Filipino food can have the Metiz experience at home with Umami Mo! The Pork+Beans Metiz, which serves two to three, is aged and cured organic pork belly with slow cooked beans wrapped in banana leaf. It comes with a side of cucumber salad. The Squid Inasal (good for three to four people), described as “refreshing and bright,” is served with cured pork belly and garbanzo miso. Try the KareKare V. 2 (good for three to four, too)—Wagyu beef short rib with eggplant salad. Order two mains and get free Cordillera rice. For a sweet finish, order the Cool Caramelized Banana Dessert (also for three to four) which comes with panda custard, tapioca balls and kasoy praline.
Best to order a day in advance, but they do accept same-day orders sometimes. They deliver 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Tuesdays to Saturdays.
