New Filipino in Excelsior - on Mission St. [Pampanguena Cuisine, San Francisco]

rln | Feb 27, 201011:56 AM

I can kick myself, I had the flyer in my pocket but now can't find it.

On the way to actually eat at Toppings this morning, we saw a new resto that has its grand opening today. It's called Pampanguenita (or similarly) and is casual, turo -turo. The owner is Josy who also cooks, and she has had a resto in Las Vegas. It's across the street from the library.

I had kare- kare and pancit. Kare-kare was good enough. Not as complex as I like but it was tasty, lots of veggies, and the veggies were not over-cooked. Crisp string beans. Bagoong was good.
Pancit ok too. Not a lot of ingredients beyond simple noodles, but it was not oily.

My husband had chicken BBQ and adobo. BBQ was fresh of the grill, generous pieces. Adobo had big chunks of chicken. A little salty for my taste.

Oh- as part of grand opening they are giving small plates of pancit and lumpia shanghai-- and the lumpia was very good!

They had suman and other desserts.

This weekend is their grand opening celebration. Nice, new setting, very friendly service and staff. She prepared mostly meat dishes for the opening.

4.99 for one item combo, 5.99 for two item combo.
On menu to be is silog breakfasts, bangus sisig, cripsy pata, and turon.

I'm happy to have a nearby SF alternative for Filipino. (aside from Goldilocks down the block which I am not a fan of).
