We love eating Filipino dishes and good thing I know how to cook those foods, we get to eat our favorites here at home.  It still feels different eating those foods here because some ingredients are not easily available therefore the true authentic taste is quite hard to achieve.  Though Asian stores have almost everything you'll need, going to those stores isn't as convenient as well.

There are times when we get the craving to eat Filipino foods so what we do is to drive somewhere to get it.  One of our favorite place to eat is Gerry's grill though it is quite a drive going there.  There's also Red Ribbon where we love eating the dinuguan and fresh lumpia.  Just mentioning all those makes me crave already!  Previously we ate in Goldilock's and the food selection there was awesome.  So many to choose from and we were so happy with the dishes we ordered.  It felt like eating right back home.


It's good that there are restaurants almost all over here in the bay area specializing on Pinoy foods.  In San Francisco there's this Kababayan Filipino Restaurant serving such yummy foods.  It's in the Mission street, one of the oldest and known place for great restaurants.  The Kababayan has all those foods every Filipino would want to eat though the only thing is they only accept cash payments.  No debit or credit cards if you wish to get some foods there.

  1. In recent years, there have been a number of Filipino restaurants popping up in many parts of our island. I have tried a few dishes and love them.
