Philipino Food In The Bay Area (Split from L.A.)
Also, in Northern California, I would recommend:
Ongpin (by far the best food for your money)
Cafe Colma (inside of Lucky Chances Casino)
All of these are in the Daly City/S. San Francisco/San Bruno area.
Also, when you're in San Diego, you should check out Ben's Asian Fusion Restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown SD.
