San Francisco’s newest Filipino restaurant in SOMA, the historic Filipino neighborhood since the 1900’s.
ampalasa plants its roots in SOMA, the historical home to the first generations of Filipino families in San Francisco since the early 1900’s. Many immigrant Filipino families and seniors still live and work here, a few nearby streets are named after Filipino heroes, Philippine murals decorate some neighborhood walls and annual Filipino festivals are still celebrated. The Filipino-American population is the second largest Asian population in the United States, and the largest Asian population in California. The largest concentrations of Filipinos in San Francisco are in District 6 and District 11. Pampalasa takes comfort in knowing we are only a couple blocks away from extended family such as the Bayanihan Community Center, Bindlestiff Studios and the West Bay Pilipino Multi-Service Center, along with the Gene Friend Recreation Center, a recreation center predominantly utlized by Filipino families, and the Victoria Manalo Draves Park, the only public park in the country named after a Filipino woman.
