Guys, I compiled 15 (plus more) MOST FAMOUS FILIPINO FOOD IN 1 POST, and I hope you try some of them.
I was not an avid cook growing up. My experience in cooking was pretty much watching my mom and uncles cook and while I was in charged in cutting the veggies or slicing the meat. But when I came here in the US, I was forced to cook out of necessity; or else, my family will get hungry. Below is the collage of Filipino food I learned to cook here in the USA. I actually compiled 15 most famous Filipino Food in One (1) post for you, guys to have an easy access to to the recipes. Just click on the link and it will direct you to the recipe.
Filipino food, when I compare it to American food, has more complex flavor. You will experience various flavors,texture and smell in a viand. For example, with the Adobo, the flavor is a combination of sweet, sourness and an ooze of sweetness. In our Filipino desser, Pichi pichi, it is sweet and "sticky," and when it is rolled with fresh shredded coconut, there is a taste of creaminess almost similar to milk.
So many people are averse of Filipino food because they are unhealthy. With Lumpia, it is deep fried and with Lechon Kawali, it is pretty much a "PUTOK BATOK" meaning it will burst your arteries into pieces due to its oiliness.But we love those meals. Be mindful though, that these "unhealthy" meals are not consumed everyday due to financial constraints; so they are usually eaten maybe once a week, or even once a year for fiestas.
