There are now TWO Purple Yam restaurants. One in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn (718) 940-8188 and the other one in Malate, Manila (Philippines) which we call Purple Yam Malate (PYM).
If you are in Manila or headed over there and you want to try our place there, email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org. We opened up PYM last July 2014 and it is in Amy’s childhood home in an old district of Manila called Malate. It is by reservation only and we serve a prix fixe degustation menu of the freshest artisanal ingredients we can source out all over the Philippines. It is the same sensibility and set of values we have used ever since we started our first restaurant, Cendrillon, in SoHo in 1995. This is our 21st year in the restaurant world doing our best to showcase what is good in both Asia and in NYC.
You can also email email@example.com for reservations for Purple Yam in Brooklyn. Just indicate which location (Malate or Brooklyn) in making the reservation. THANK YOU!
PURPLE YAM BROOKLYN WILL BE CLOSED THANKSGIVING DAY. We are very thankful to all our friends and loved ones who continue to support us in our 21st year of operating a restaurant in New York City. Love and peace!
We will be OPEN CHRISTMAS EVE & DAY. Also NEW YEAR’S EVE & DAY.
