Patio Filipino A Filipino-Spanish Restaurant 

1770 el camino real, san bruno, ca 94066



As early as the late 80’s, three golfing buddies became interested in combining their various talents and expertise through the creation of a brand new restaurant. After numerous trials and tribulations their inspiration came when they visited Manila in March 2005 and experienced true five star cuisine by the finest chefs in the Philippines. They invited another partner and soon thereafter, Patio Filipino Restaurant came to fruition.

Filipino cuisine takes much of its influence through Spain and the partners wanted to celebrate the flavors of both cultures. What better way to share the fusion of Filipino-Spanish fine dining which has long been absent in the States than through a restaurant we can be proud of.

The perfect representation of such a place was found in El Camino in San Bruno which had a beautiful patio reminiscent of many childhood homes in the Philippines. The partners were blessed with the experience of a seasoned Spanish-Filipina chef from Manila and on June 2005 Patio Filipino was born. Patio Filipino aims to bring families and friends together through its inviting atmosphere, courteous staff and of course delicious, sumptuous and unforgettable dishes. Come and experience the splendor of authentic Filipino Spanish cuisine.

If you are looking for great Filipino food and good service at very affordable prices in the Chicago area, you can find it at Isla Pilipina.  All your craving for authentic and traditional Filipino food can be fulfilled under one roof.  The restaurant attracts not only the kabayans but even Americans, because of the tasty and delicious food which is always served fresh, in big proportions and is very affordable.  Isla Pilipina has plenty of Filipino food on their menu of non-veg appetizers, seafood dishes, noodles, soups and also vegetarian dishes.

Since taking over Isla Pilipina from his parents about four years ago, Ray Espiritu, a 27-year-old art school grad, has wrought a gradual transformation. “It had a small niche; I had bigger dreams,” he says of Isla, whose name customers frequently abbreviate due to confusion over whether to pronounce Pilipina with a “P” or an “F.” (For the record, Espiritu says both are correct.)

Already well known within the Filipino community—diners come from as far away as Ohio and order everything on the menu to take home with them—Isla is now attracting a number of people unfamiliar with the cuisine.

The restaurant is always packed with customers and fills up quickly all the time, and it is a BYOB restaurant (BYOB means bring your own b— bottle, booze or beer).  The decor of Isla is absolutely lovely – warm colors and modern paintings reflecting Filipino culture, while the servers are very friendly and the service excellent.

There is a need out there for a restaurant catering to Filipino-Americans, offering food that they’re truly familiar with, tasty yet reasonably priced and served in a clean professional restaurant environment.
A restaurant that Filipino-Americans can be proud of, showing their pride in it by bringing their non-Filipino friends along. They’ll come in groups to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and those special occasions in the traditional way of sharing food or “salu-salo.”
The convivial atmosphere in a town fiesta is chosen as a theme of the restaurant, reflecting the world-renowned Filipino hospitality. This feeling is captured in the mural one will find in any of its location.
Salo-Salo Grill and Restaurant serves Filipino appetizers, soups, ihaw-ihaw, mula sa kawali (wok) and other meat specialties, seafood selections, vegetables, noodles, rice combination, beverages, desserts, and an all day breakfast.
The first Salo-Salo Restaurant opened in November 1, 1999 in West Covina, followed by the Artesia branch beside the popular and trendy Cerritos Mall on October 1, 2001. The highly successful branch in exciting Las Vegas soon followed on October 10, 2003, serving the huge Filipino-American market there. The Salo-Salo Glendale franchise opened it’s doors on January 16, 2006 near the fabulous Glendale Galleria. As good locations become available, new stores are planned to be built on known Filipino-American population centers in California.
