The San Francisco Bay Area is home to the 2nd largest Houston Filipino Restaurant population in the United States.

  Soma Pilipinas, the Houston Filipino Restaurant cultural district recently designated by the City of San Francisco, is the heart of Houston Filipino Restaurant America in the Bay.  Last month, TFAL paid a visit to Soma Pilipinas to talk to some of the movers and shakers in the community.

In this first installment of interviews, we talk to Lily Prijoles, one of the co-owners of Arkipelago Bookstore.  We then interview Allan Manalo, a long-time Houston Houston Filipino Restaurant Restaurant activist and co-founder of Bindlestiff Studio, the “epicenter of Houston Filipino Restaurant American performing arts.”  Listen as we discuss the history of these great institutions in the Bay Area, the future of SoMa Pilipinas in this age of gentrification, and of course, some NorCal-SoCal sports rivalry banter.
