  • Amanda I. • 9/17/2021
    This is currently my favorite restaurant in the DMV. Everything I've tried has been amazing. Admittedly, I lean towards the vegan/vegetarian options and absolutely all of them here are divine. The eggplant adobo is a must for any adobo fan. I usually hate how dry to meat gets in adobo dishes but Purple Patch solved...  

  • Kate H. • 9/13/2021
    Love Purple Patch! A neighborhood favorite of mine for years. I'm so glad they've survived the pandemic so far. They serve fantastic Filipino food with some Americanized dishes as well. Previously in a small indoor location, they've now expanded to a huge outdoor seated area on Mt. Pleasant St. I'd only gone for dinner in...  

  • Ashley G. • 9/4/2021
    I enjoyed my food here and the ube ice cream. At present due to COVID, seating is first come first served so if you want to sit outside, make sure to arrive early and get your name on a wait list. I'm not sure it's 100% authentic, but it's still good. Tip: if you like...

The inside looked unique too but we were more...  

  • Christopher S. • 8/7/2021
    MT. PLEASANT, DC / FILIPINO / 07-30-21 / LUNCH +So many options to choose from. +I actually enjoyed Purple Patch's rendition of Filipino spaghetti; the grated cheese was unnecessary though. Many people consider Filipino food 'comfort food,' so no need to add bougie ingredients ;) +The 4.5 year old devoured her sliders. +The garlic rice...  

  • Shivana D. • 8/9/2021
    Tried Purple Patch for the first time recently and really enjoyed the experience! Although the restaurant is currently first come first serve (no reservations), it was pretty easy to get a table on a Sunday afternoon/evening. The outdoor dining space is larger than I expected and although the indoor space is smaller, I did appreciate...
