I was taken by a filipino friend to Ihaw Ihaw (translation: grill)in 422 San Mateo Av, San Bruno.
I normally do not love filipino food since it is a bit heavy on the sauce department if not well cooked. I do like it very much when home cooked! Well, this place came pretty close to home cooked...
Sinigang soup in a sour tamarind broth was fresh and light.
Kare Kare had oxtails that melted in a perfectly balanced peanut sauce
Laeng was a taro leaf version of creamed spinach with coconut sauce...
Pata was crispy and as deliciously cholesterol laden as required!
Ube ice cream a fluorescent purple tat tasted creamy and delicious
In short a really wonderful meal. I also noticed several other restaurants on that street that we need to explore!
