F.O.B. is a Filipino restaurant on Smith Street that feels a little like someone’s living room. There are plants, exposed brick walls, and, if you look closely, even some old family photographs on the walls. The menu here consists of things like grilled skewers, pork belly, and chicken adobo, and there also a bunch of sides like garlic rice and sliced-up tomatoes with a duck egg. We particularly like that tomato side and the Filipino barbecue, which comes with either chicken or pork skewers. If it’s nice out, you should eat those things on the big back patio.
