Purple Yam opened in July 2014 and is located in Malate, Manila. Since then, Chef Romy Dorotan continues to re-imagine Filipino Food by looking for food that grows around us. Concentrating on the freshness and seasonality of ingredients, he concocts new ways for us to enjoy food in a simple yet satisfying way. Taking something familiar and making it new.
