At long last, Filipino food arrives. What took it so long? Filipino dishes at Bistro 7107 in Crystal City include, clockwise from top left: dinuguan, pork belly and ears in blood sauce; the vegetable and shrimp fritter ukoy; kare kare, an oxtail dish in peanut sauce; sisig, spicy pork belly and ears; and crispy pata, pork leg with soy-vinegar sauce.
