The Purple Yam was converted by Chef Romy Dorotan and his wife Amy Besa from a former 99-cent store. And although we do enjoy a good bargain, we have to say we’d much rather have a basket of Virgin Coconut Oil bread filled with Macapuno Caramel.

The restaurant, which uses home-grown and locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible, has an incredibly diverse menu that has garnered a very loyal following. In addition to their mouth-watering menu, the owners, along with WXY Studio, have managed to put together a beautifully sophisticated space with a state-of-the-art open kitchen. The rear garden, covered by a shading trellis and enclosed with an undulating bamboo fence, is a hidden gem in the bustling Brooklyn neighborhood.
