Something Filipino in San Bruno, California, U.S.A. - TASTEBUDS

A Filipino, where ever he/she may be, will always have an appetite for Filipino cuisine.  Even, when we were in the United States of America, after a week in their country, our craving for something Filipino was ultimately satisfied in San Bruno, California!

Big thanks to the sister-in-law of one of our companions from work, who invited us to have dinner at TASTEBUDS! It was I think an hour drive, or a little more, from the place where we stayed in San Francisco.  But it was way too worth the drive.

We were 8 diners in this Filipino restaurant and despite the number of dishes that were ordered, our host for the dinner still went home some leftovers! So here's a round up of those sumptuous dishes from TASTEBUDS!  The foods undeniably enchanted our taste buds that night!

Lechon Paksiw is always expectedly delish.

Food Rating (Serving Size) = 10 of 10
Food Rating (Taste) = 100 ! of 10 
Despite the very long distance of San Francisco from the Philippines, this may be one of the reasons that I yearn to go back and just have a bite of this very mouthwatering and addicting pork dish with shrimp paste and mango!!!

(Stewed oxtail chunks in peanut sauce)
Food Rating (Serving Size) = 9 of 10
Food Rating (Taste) = 8 of 10 
Though I rarely take a risk on swallowing this kind of dish, its look has attracted my curiosity.  Hence, I tasted the thick, rich-tasting sauce and the veggies.  It was worth a try!
