Hungry Ape Menu

Started as a food stall, Hungry Ape is always a crowd favorite in every food festival.

They used to serve South American food at weekend markets and has expanded their dishes to include Filipino dishes with a twist.

So we will start by saying we love everything on their menu — no kidding and nope we are not paid to do this.

So here is a run down of our favorites from their menu.

Adobo sa Gata

This Filipino comfort food with a twist was a huge hit!

The rich gata paired with the tender meat is uhhhh-mazing.
