    From Prep to Plate

    Seth Tillman heads to Egg Karne, a Filipino-American fusion restaurant in Herndon, VA. Owner Alvin Barnuevo demonstrates how to prepare an ube burger, a Filipino-inspired dish featuring a bun made from ube, a purple sweet potato. Chef Alvin prepares the ube batter and cooks it on a grill along with homemade longanisa patties. The burger is assembled with cheese, fried eggs, and powdered sugar.

    The bread was made with Ube and the the middle part had a double meat of longanisa (Filipino sweet sausage), fried egg, and oozing with cheddar cheese. A hardy, delicious, and exceptional sandwich! The Ube bread was soft and delightful, I could eat it by itself. The sandwich came with an Ube sauce to drizzle on top of the sandwich and ohh-bae I was hooked.
