Papa’s Kitchen

Papa's Kitchen serves Filipino food in Jackson Heights.
Papa’s Kitchen serves Filipino food and offers karaoke.

Papa’s Kitchen is on the southern side of Jackson Heights. This hidden Filipino gem serves traditional dishes such as sinigang, a soup made with tamarind, and pancit, a rice egg noodle stir fry. The most recent craze at Papa’s Kitchen is their ube pancakes. These deep purple pancakes swim in an ube syrup that gives the dish a nutty, vanilla flavor.

Filipino spring rolls called lumpia are recommended to start the meal. To accompany the food, cocktails — including Ube Martini and Sunset Cocktail — and smoothies enhance the dichotomy of salty and sour Filipino flavors. Karaoke on site is the perfect way to finish the meal.
