New Orleanians were so enamored with the new-to-Louisiana Filipino cuisine that Christina Quackenbush dished out at her popular Marigny pop-up, that Milkfish has now blossomed into a Mid-City brick-and-mortar destination. Here, Quackenbush serves homey recipes from her native Philippines like peanut butter-stewed oxtail and chile-spiked pork face and chicken liver with a sunnyside-up egg over garlic rice. For less carnivorous cravings, Quackenbush is happy to transform most dishes into still-piquant vegetarian ones.
