Intramuros – South San Francisco

This past weekend was my first experience at Intramuros restaurant, a more upscale Filipino restaurant in South San Francisco.  We were celebrating my good friend’s 28th birthday.  Dinner reservations were at 6:30 for a group of 10 but only 7 of us actually showed up.  No big deal for them.

The restaurant is located in suburbia just of El Camino near Tanforan mall.  They have a small parking lot, but it was full.  Not an issue since there was plenty of street parking.  Upon first walking into the restaurant you come into the modernly decorated lobby.  Up a few steps is the main dining room where we were seated.  In the middle of the dining room is a grand piano with a gentleman playing some soft elevator type melodies.  Quite a nice experience so far.  The menu was large and consisted of some traditional Filipino dishes and some with a few “twists.”

We ordered a full course.  As the started, we had 2 orders of the appetizer sampler which was an assortment of fried egg rolls.  I think just one sampler plate would have been enough for our group of 7.  The wine list had some good variety.  I am not a wine expert but there were a couple wines that I recognized so we tried those out.  Moderately priced at $28-$32 for my choices.  We had 5 different entrees to share: the ox-tail kare-kare, lechon kawali, bistek manila, rabo de toro, and pancit canton.   For dessert we ordered the halo-halo and bibinka souffle.

Overall, I give this place 4 out of 5 stars.  I would go back again for when ever I am craving some nice Filipino food in a modern setting.
