Papa's Kitchen

It's tough to find a protein-based, nutritionally balanced entrée in NYC for under $10. But Papa's Kitchen, a sibling-owned Filipino cafe, fills a void from its standalone micro-house. Made from a treasured family recipe, the Philippines' national dish of banana leaf-wrapped chicken adobo for just $9 is a paragon of form; comprising fall-off-the-bone chicken pieces braised in garlic, vinegar and soy, all over rice.
