On the weekends, you’ll catch chef Romy Dorotan and his wife Amy Besa cooking up some of the best Filipino, Malaysian, and Balinese fare on the East Coast. But his cuisine can’t be pigeon-holed, because he’s also drawing upon Chinese, Korean, Latin, and European influences. This inviting neighborhood restaurant has a menu that never fails to surprise, featuring creative sides, entrees, and desserts. From rice pudding to pandan to halo halo, there’s a sweet treat for every palette.

Pro tip: Purple Yam is only open for dinner on weekdays!
