SF: Filipino Breakfast at Kusina Ni Tess
One morning, I sneaked out of my hotel early to get Filipino breakfast at nearby Kusina Ni Tess. It was still early enough in the day that the steam tables had fresh food and I eyed the okra they were cooking when I walked in.
For such a tiny spot, they had a huge menu. There was a table you could eat at but this seemed more of a take-out place.
I decided on pork adobo, garlic fried rice and a fried egg.
The counter woman made sure to put a little gravy on my fried rice. I grabbed a calamansi (Filipino citrus) drink and was all set.
For the Union Square area, this would be a great place for a filling and satisfying breakfast or lunch.
