discoveries after the wedding bells

Home Away From Home

To say that we had a great vacation last month would be an understatement.

We went to so many places and tried so many delicious dishes, but one place that stood out is surprisingly a place that served delicacies from home.

Hubby was tinkering with his GPS and found out that there was a Filipino restaurant just down the street from where we were staying, so before we ended our SF trip, we had lunch at Patio Filipino.

We’ve gone to a few Filipino restaurants in the US but none of them exhibited an ambiance like Patio Filipino.

Entering the place definitely got me excited!

After all the different dishes we ate while we were in Cali, I was honestly craving for Kare kare so I ordered a bowl.

It did not disappoint!  The peanut based sauce was delicious and the bagoong (shrimp paste) was a hit! My mom kept asking for additional servings and our server happily complied =)

Hubby decided to try their sisig.

This was delicious. The consistency and flavor was comparable to what you could find back home.

My brother ordered the bangus sisig.

It was good but my palate was craving for pork that day so I just got one serving of this dish.

My sister ordered their lechon kawali.

Just the way i like it! Cooked just right that the meat was soft in contrast to the skin which was very crispy!

My mom tried their binagoongan.

The most delicious binagoongan I have tasted! It was flavorful but not too salty. Perfect!

It was definitely a wonderful ending to a great San Francisco vacation!

  1. We have family in SF so we’ll be sure to check out Patio Filipino when next we visit. But even better, we’ll be in Manila/Makati for Christmas so it can’t get any more authentic than that! Can’t wait . . . I’ll have to go through your posts for any resto recommendations.
