Tselogs [San Francisco, Tenderloin]

Had a nice lunch at Tselogs, a newish Filipino restaurant in the Tenderloin. It’s a very small restaurant, only counter style seating across from the kitchen and along the opposite wall. This is a sister restaurant to Tselogs in Daly City, which I haven’t been to. Ordered the chicken sisigsilog ($8.99) and a slice of buko pie ($3.99). Chicken sisig was tasty. Tender and fatty with a few bits of skin. Didn’t notice any chicken liver in there but could be wrong. It’s served sizzling on an iron pan and the bottom got nice and brown and crispy. A squeeze of lemon gave it some acidity to balance out the fat. Served with garlic fried rice and a fried egg with runny yolk. I’m a sisig newbie as I’ve only had it in burrito form before this, but this was very good.

The slice of buko pie was fine. Coconut and condensed milk based filling with a few chunks of whole coconut. Probably wouldn’t get again. Maybe it’s better with a scoop of ice cream.
