This Filipino couple in San Francisco serve up exciting cuisine that draws on the foundation of our heritage dishes

RHIA GRANA | 06 Jan 2022

A Filipino restaurant in San Franciso, Calif., Just landed a spot on the US Esquire’s list of best new restaurants in America for 2021. Named Abacá, the restaurant received high praise despite being only five months old.

In the feature film, veteran food writer Omar Mamoon particularly highlighted the pancitis and lumpia– who in Abacá’s case are by no means ordinary Filipinos handaan staples that we know of. “The pancit is made with fresh, hand-made noodles that are elastic to the touch and topped with plump scallops, calamansi and corn,” Mamoon wrote. “The sauce that brings it all together is an awesome homemade XO, which begins life as a paste of shrimp, scallops and chili peppers.”

One of the must-haves on Abaca’s menu is their scallop pancit.

Fried pork lumpia, on the other hand, is “served with herbs, lettuce wraps, and apple ketchup (also made on site) that gives what is usually a fried snack a lightness and brightness.”

The writer particularly praises the way California-born and Manila-raised chef Francis Ang concocts Filipino classics “with a subtle California”. Ang, who returned to the United States at the age of 19, first studied at the Culinary School at City College in San Francisco. He started as a cook at Crowne Plaza in SF, then worked as a cake decorator at an old-school Danish bakery called Copenhagen.

After graduation, Chef Francis focused on fine dining and worked with Michelin-starred chef Gary Danko. He became a pastry chef at the Fifth Floor Restaurant, which was eventually redesigned to become what is now Dirty Habit, a restaurant and bar for which the Filipino served as chef.

Abaca Restaurant Fried Pork Lumpia
Their pork lumpia is served with apple ketchup, lettuce, herbs and fermented mango⁠⁠.

It was a trip to his wife Dian’s hometown, Borongan, in eastern Samar, in 2013 that sparked the idea of ​​creating a Filipino restaurant. It was after Typhoon Yolanda hit the country. “We were lucky to have survived because two islets blocked the rising waters of his city,” he recalls at ANCX. “Everywhere else, there was no [spared]. We did what we could locally by repackaging goods, water and clothing.

When Francis and his wife returned to the United States, they held a fundraiser on the fifth floor creating an all-Filipino menu. “It was so well received that it became a ‘eureka’ moment,” shares chef Francis. It was then that they began to dream of opening a Filipino restaurant.

But first, the couple started with pop-ups that feature food showcasing their Filipino heritage. “We did the popup for seven years on our way home to travel to different areas and learn about real Filipino cuisine,” he says. The big response from the diners became the impetus to open Abacá on August 16, 2021.

Abaca Restaurant
Chef Francis says they named their restaurant Abacá because their team “represents fiber, strong and resilient”.

Why Abacá

The name of the restaurant was inspired by one of their trips, specifically their visit to Daraga in Bicol where they met Svea Villanueva-Reyes who runs Balay Cena Una, which serves Bicolano heritage recipes. The Reyes, they discovered, also produced and exported abaca articles. “We knew then that we wanted to decorate our future restaurant with their creations. When we reached out last year for a set, it clicked, ”Francis shares. He also thought Abacá would be a perfect name for their restaurant. “Our team represents fiber: strong and resilient.

the pancitis and lumpia are just two things Abacá de SF is known for. Chef Francis highly recommends their Tamales, which they learned to make on their travels to Samar, Pampanga and Cavite. “We paired it with black Périgord truffles and our own version of ‘Alavar’ sauce – think of it like a coconut curry high in crab fat,” he shares.

Abaca restaurant sisig fried rice
Their sisig fried rice, another crowd favorite, is served with a poached egg, chicharon, onion sprouts, and pickled red onions.

He is also proud of the new dish that his sous chef Aaron Escalada has concocted. “It’s a crispy octopus served with an Ilocano bagoong and a calamansi coleslaw and fennel salad,” explains chef Francis. “It’s served with local purple sweet potato mash we picked up at the farmer’s market and tasty seared grapes with chicory leaves. It’s the perfect dish with everything on it. Fresh, crispy, malinamnam, sweet, bitter and so fucked up masarap! “

Another restaurant staple is the Sisig fried rice. Chef Pinoy says he learned to do sisig from his Filipino-Chinese father, himself a restaurant owner. When they organized the fundraiser for Yolanda, Dian came up with the idea of ​​creating Sisig Fried Rice, and it continues to be a crowd favorite until now. “We serve it with a poached egg, chicharon, onion sprouts and pickled red onions. Doesn’t that seem like a good reason to trust that Pinoy pride when visiting San Francisco?

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police on Tuesday filed a criminal complaint against a Filipino woman who broke quarantine rules and eight others, including her parents, who allegedly helped her avoid mandatory five-day isolation after her return of the United States before last Christmas.

PNP’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said that Gwyneth Anne Chua and the others violated Republic Law No.13332, or the Law on Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Events. health concerns of public health concern.

In complaints it filed with the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office, CIDG said Chua and the others failed to cooperate and abided by quarantine orders and violated terms and conditions. directives issued by public health authorities under section 1 (g) (iii) and (iv) of article XI of the implementing regulations.

According to CIDG, Chua arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport on December 22 and checked into the Berjaya Makati Hotel at 11:23 pm Shortly after, her father picked her up in a sport utility vehicle.

On December 23, security camera footage showed Chua having dinner at Mijo Comfort Food restaurant in Makati City’s Barangay Poblacion. She then went to the Japanese restaurant-bar Kampai, also in Poblacion. Kampai said in a statement that she arrived at 10 p.m. and stayed there until around 1 a.m. the next day.

Chua returned to Berjaya on December 25 accompanied by her mother. She underwent a swab test the next day and was informed on December 27 that she was positive for COVID-19. She was then transferred to another hotel for isolation.

CIDG said it had not found sufficient evidence to file criminal complaints against the people she interacted with at the restaurant and bar who were ultimately infected with COVID-19.

“However, CIDG recommends and encourages such persons to file a complaint with CIDG for subsequent referral to the prosecutor’s office,” he said in a statement.

The Department of Health (DOH) said seven of 11 people Chua had close contact with, three of 26 who had “general contact” with her and one in five second-generation contacts had all tested positive for COVID. -19.

The DOH, however, did not categorically say they were all infected with Chua. He also did not disclose which variant of the coronavirus – whether Delta or Omicron – that Chua and the others were infected with.

The other respondents in the complaints were identified by CIDG as Chua’s father, Allan, and mother, Gemma; Rico Atienza, her boyfriend; Gladiolyn Biala, Managing Director of Berjaya; Den Sabayo, deputy manager of the hotel reception; Tito Arboleda, responsible for security at Berjaya; Esteban Gatbonton, hotel porter; and Hannah Araneta, front desk staff.

Another case

Home Secretary Eduardo Año said another Filipino woman who arrived from abroad on the same day as Chua also allegedly skipped her five-day quarantine at Seda residences in Makati.

Año told dzBB radio on Tuesday that instead of checking in at Seda, she boarded a car waiting for her at the hotel. The car took her to her condominium at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City.

Police said the woman, whom she did not identify, claimed in social media posts that she had been exempted by the Quarantine Bureau (BOQ) from mandatory quarantine. The BOQ denied this.

In accordance with the regulations for quarantine facilities, Seda reported to the BOQ and the Tourism Ministry that the woman was a “no-show,” according to Año.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo Puyat said earlier that the woman even went for a massage and shared a video of it on social media.

Suspicion of “racket”

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said on Tuesday he also ordered the National Bureau of Investigation to “fully investigate possible willful violations” of mandatory quarantine regulations by travelers, from their arrival until their stay in hotels or their home.

According to him, Chua was only the “tip of the iceberg”.

He suspected that there was a “racketeering” for many “quarantine jumpers” from the airport.

“Instead of being taken to quarantine facilities, passengers could be allowed to return directly to their homes or other locations,” he said in a radio interview.

RA 11332 is punishable by a fine of P 20,000 to P 50,000 and / or imprisonment for one month to six months.

And the VIPs?

Two other prominent people were charged with health protocol violations in 2020 — Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, who visited his wife at Makati Medical Center after testing positive for COVID-19, and former PNP chief Debold Sinas for ignoring physical estrangement during the celebration of his 55th birthday while serving as Metro Manila Police Chief while the country was still under enhanced community quarantine.

The Justice Ministry had cleared Pimentel while Taguig’s prosecutor had yet to decide whether Sinas should be charged in court.

Berjaya publicly apologized for the “very serious violation” and said that “any employee found to be erring by commission or omission will be severely punished to deter a repeat of what happened”.

Asked to comment in an interview with the ANC on Tuesday whether Chua should be declared persona non grata by the city, Makati Mayor Abby Binay said it would be “petty” and such a decision was “reserved for someone. ‘one who really deserves it. “

“She is young, she is callous, but she will have to suffer the consequences,” Binay said. She advised those who had been affected by Chua’s actions to bring a civil action for damages against her.

Almost anyone who has ever worked in the hospitality industry, from a fast food cashier to a nightclub bartender to the manager of a fine dining restaurant, can tell you a horrible story about vomit.

It’s not like someone intends to throw up all over a table when they leave for the night, but it does happen – especially among the very, very drunk – and someone has to clean up the mess.

With that in mind, a trendy resto-bar in the Yonge and Eglinton area has a formal policy in place warning all patrons that anyone vomiting on the premises will be charged a $ 50 cleaning fee “to ensure l ‘fairness to our fellow staff members’.

Even better? It is only in effect for New Years Eve, which most people would say the worst of any calendar date (tied with March 17) for belligerent and sloppy drunken behavior. “Amateur night”, as people in the industry call it.

“We used to have live music and dancing [before the pandemic], and usually when people are in that kind of atmosphere, when they eat and drink, when they drink too much … they throw up, ”says Karan, co-owner of the Tamasha Indian Resto-Bar, police.

“Even though it’s in the toilet, it’s outside the potty.”

Tamasha isn’t having fun when it comes to protecting staff. Image by Bob Collins.

Karan told blogTO on Friday that Tamasha (1835 Yonge St.) started announcing the charge before NYE 2019.

“It had happened a couple of times and we were like ‘enough is enough’,” he said. “We felt like this was not part of a server’s job description …”

The idea of ​​the policy was to make sure that the poor staff member responsible for cleaning up someone else’s stomach contents in NYE gets a $ 50 bonus, but to date no one has was fined.

“We implemented this policy, and things really changed after that,” Karan said, noting that the restaurant has not had any vomiting situation since putting the rule in writing.

So, when advertising the New Year’s festivities in 2020 and 2021, he and his partner decided to leave the warning in place.

“It’s technically more of a warning than a fine,” he told blogTO. “But our intention is to charge if that happens.”

An image of a sign on the restaurant’s front door announcing the policy was posted to at least two large private Facebook groups (Weird Toronto and Food and Wine Industry Navigator) this week, winning praise from hundreds of commentators.

“As a professional bar and restaurant cleaner, I really appreciate this! My staff too,” wrote one. “The most beautiful and beloved poster I have ever seen hangs in the bathroom of one of my clients … Basically she says: please help keep the toilet clean.” and remember that another human is to clean this area after you. Be respectful.”

“I think it’s appropriate. We had a corporate Christmas party and our place is a cute little restaurant (not a King West supper club) and someone threw up in the bathroom sink. (like, it was full.) “wrote another.

“We didn’t find it until after the party had left… and one of our employees had to clean it. I’m all for the cleaning fee for people who can’t handle their alcohol.”

MANILA, Philippines – This is the second year of the pandemic, and this year’s not-so-restrictive closures have somehow helped several local businesses and restaurants recover, though not fully, from the dire circumstances of 2020. Things opened, people became more comfortable dining out and the food and beverage industry is now coming back to life, many are hoping and still waiting to prosper.

But the F&B industry continues to struggle, and a handful of beloved names have succumbed to the irreversible effects of the pandemic this year. We had to say goodbye to a few restaurants that will be sorely missed. We pay tribute here to the food establishments that disappeared too soon but that we hope to see again soon.

Chocolate kiss

Chocolate Kiss, the iconic fixture of the University of the Philippines (UP) Bahay ng Alumni, already said goodbye to their physical stores in August 2020, but still remained open for take out and delivery of their cakes, pastries. and signature hot meals. A year later, in June, the beloved restaurant announced that it would be closing its store for good after 23 years. It was a painful goodbye kiss that no one was ready to return.

Chocolate Kiss explained that while “the last year of navigating through blockades has been quite exciting,” it was not sustainable for their business, prompting them to “slow things down”.

It was a decision “strongly guided by a return to their roots,” said owner Ina Flores-Pahati, along with a financial review. The cafe had always relied on a high volume of orders to keep it running, so the difficult decision was prompted by losses already suffered since the lockdown began, as well as the prospect of not being able to operate at full capacity for a while. indeterminate period.

Chocolate Kiss, a family owned business, opened its humble doors on the second floor of the Bahay ng Alumni building of the University of the Philippines inside the UP Diliman campus in 1997. Its menu consisted of comfort food and freshly baked cakes, which makes it a must chika a corner for older people, or a “more chic” dining choice for students looking to spend their extra allowance for the week, either during a barkada meeting place or romantic date on campus.

Kermit MNL

The Manila sibling of Kermit, a popular pizzeria in Siargao, held their last hurray in October before closing.

Kermit MNL, a crowd favorite in Poblacion, Makati City, said goodbye to his customers with a “heavy heart.”

“We missed you during these difficult times. Thank you very much for doing us the honor of serving and supporting you over the past few years. We will all miss you dearly, ”the restaurant known for its authentic brick oven pizza and pasta wrote on social media.

Kermit opened its first and only branch in Metro Manila in April 2018 at Molina Street, Poblacion, Makati City, then its first branch in La Union in February 2021. Kermit’s first branch along General Luna Road, Isle of Siargao was founded by an Italian expatriate. and entrepreneur Gianni Grifoni in 2011.

The little hut has become the favorite spot for locals and tourists alike after surfing, serving what “might be the best pizza and fresh pasta in the country,” Conde Nast Traveler wrote on his website.

Jeepney

In September, one of the Big Apple’s pioneer Filipino restaurants, Jeepney, closed its doors for good at its prime location on First Avenue, East Village, after nine years. Filipino chef Nicole Ponseca was the owner of New York’s famous Filipino restaurant and cocktail bar.

Ponseca said the Jeepney shutdown was just the start of planning bigger things for its pioneering brand. “I want to go from being an independent operator to something more formidable with more support. I don’t want this to be the end of Jeepney, ”she said. She wanted it to become a chain of “quick-fancy” restaurants that can be found in several cities – “a hybrid of something that is quick-laid back and something that is well-laid back.”

Jeepney was known for the award-winning Chori Burger – a brioche bun sandwiching a beef and longganisa patty, spicy banana ketchup, Maggi aioli, atchara pickles, and eggs – and promoting the native. kamayan-style way to eat in New York.

Jeepney is Ponseca’s last physical store in New York City, which she founded in 2012. Ponseca opened a second Jeepney branch in early 2021 and a new brand called Tita Baby’s (a Filipino barbecue restaurant), both in Miami. .

In December 2019, Ponseca closed its other popular Filipino restaurant in East Village Maharlika after nine years.

B. Wings

B. Wings was one of the favorite dishes of students in the Katipunan and Mercato Centrale region, which suddenly, silently and sadly began to shut down in early 2021. The closure of their only branch along Esteban Abada was not confirmed until early 2021, when the former local Wing Seal staff member opened his own cloud kitchen and resumed selling the wings for delivery.

They created chicken wings and fillets similarly adapted to the original flavors of B. Wings – barbecue, garlic cheese, lemonade, spicy, sweet and spicy lemonade and original buffalo.

Casa Daza

Casa Daza, Chef Sandy Daza’s Filipino restaurant at UP Town Center in Quezon City, closed its doors to the public for good in February, saying it was a “tough decision” and thanking customers for their support over the past three years. years.

Casa Daza opened on the second floor of UP Town Center in 2018. Its menu shares a few favorites from Filipino restaurant Wooden Spoon, also owned by Chef Sandy, cookbook author and son of Filipino food icon Nora. Daza.

Casa Daza still sells its freshly baked empanadas, rolls, and siopao in select stores and malls kiosks for take out and delivery.

Elbert’s dinner

Elbert’s Diner, located on the second floor of the Powerplant Shopping Center, closed in January and thanked its customers for all their support “throughout the years.”

“We hope to be back one day. We are proud of our sandwiches and will do our best to find them a home again, ”they wrote.

Elbert’s Diner started as “Elbert’s Cheesesteak Sandwiches” on the ground floor of the Power Plant Mall in 2009. They moved to Alabang in 2014 as “Elbert’s Sandwiches”, then returned to the Power Plant Mall in 2018 as “Elbert’s Sandwich Shop”, renaming shortly thereafter to Elbert’s Diner.

They were known for their cheesesteak subs, sandwiches, cubanos, mashed burgers, sliders, and hot dogs.

Elbert’s Diner was part of the Elbert’s Concepts group, owned by Elbert Cuenca, which is also behind the Elbert’s Pizzeria, Elbert’s Cheesesteak, Elbert’s Steakroom and Metronome brands.

In 2020, many other household names have also folded under pressure from the pandemic, including Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine of Quezon City; the Baguio Forestry House (which has since reopened in a new location); the modern izakaya of Makati 12/10; the Hole in the Wall at Century City Mall; Katipunan ROKU Sushi + Ramen, Bo’s Coffee and RiceTop gems; and LUDO Boardgame Bar & Bistro. – Rappler.com
