Munchies: Jeepney



On this episode of Munchies, we visit Jeepney, the bustling restaurant in New York City’s East Village, to learn what Filipino cuisine is all about. Then we hit the town with head chef and owner, Miguel Trinidad, and his business partners, Nicole Ponseca and Tomas De Los Reyes.

First, they take us over to their Chinatown staple, Nom Wah Tea Parlor, where they spend every New Year’s Day. Nom Wah’s owner, Wilson Tang, teaches us about the finer points of eating soup dumplings and a little Chinatown history. Buzzed off of pork broth, we head over to hang with Jeepney’s neighbors at Ducks Eatery, where we sample the goat’s neck with shots of potent homemade Mezcal.

The crew from Ducks Eatery joins us for a nightcap as we stumble over to the bar Pouring Ribbons for world-class cocktails and some hilarious stories from their colleague, Topher Chung. We finish off the night with a leisurely stroll back to Jeepney, where a whole set of friends is waiting to crush an epic Kamayan feast. Enjoy!
