Filipino food at Ilhwan

Seth Ditchik | May 19, 1999 01:10 PM

Craving new and different tastes, I ate at Ilhwan
(sp?) last night, recommended in Jim Leff's Eclectic
Guide. I can't say that I was impressed. As advised,
I had the BBQ pork; it was OK, but nothing special,
certainly not among the best BBQ of any style, as Jim
writes. It was certainly cheap - $6.25 for the pork
and a melon juice, and it was a pleasant enough place
to eat. I dunno - was this an off night? Has the
place gone downhill? Or was I just expecting too much
from the experience? It certainly was not on par with
other restaurants I have checked out on Leff's advice,
like Kebab Cafe or Pio Pio.
