Taking time to check out Tama. This spot on Lewis Avenue in Bed-Stuy is drawing a young crowd for its Filipino cuisine. Crispy pork spring rolls with banana ketchup start you off. Popcorn chicken comes two ways; as an appetizer, and served atop porridge with a soft egg.  Seasonal Pancit brings lightly stir fried vegetables and noodles together in perfect unison. Perhaps the best dish we tried was the Bicol Express, luscious chunks of pork belly prepared with coconut chilies and crunchy green beans. Lengwa is a funky dish made with beef tongue and smoke mushrooms wrapped in wilted kale. Also on the menu is Chicken Adobo prepared confit style, and Smoked Mackerel with spicy cocoa rice. Tama is an oasis for locals looking for a healthy meal at an affordable price.
