I just thought Filipino food deserves another thread so here it is... hehe

I was surprised knowing that Balut doesn't originate in our country especially a lot of Filipinos would say, you are not a true Filipino if you haven't eaten one, seemed to be our national food and it's what they usually offer to foreigners to try.

I keep thinking what are the Filipino foods that we can call our own really, since most of our cuisine were influenced by other countries.

Lechon, paella, puchero, mechado, kaldereta was introduced by Spanish, pansit and lumpia was introduced by Chinese.
Adobo I think is truly a filipino dish. Pinakbet and sinigang also hmmm I wonder what are the others...

Any Filipino foods that you love that is ours really?

Haha pinoy na pinoy ate Charisma. Nobody in our house knows how to cook kare-kare hehe. At one point I know I tried to taste this but I couldn't remember the taste anymore :D. I also don't eat goat so I'm not a fan of kare-kare but I believe that it's really good.


I have to Google what Diningding, Sinantol, Pinangat are, I haven't tried them and haven't heard them too. Diningding is like a Pinakbet with a little twist on the ingredients. Sinantol is one proof of Filipinos creativity on dishes, I never thought there's a dish out of the Santol fruit. I would love to try it I just don't know where. :DI searched Pinangat it says it's laing. I heard laing but haven't seen a real one really.
Nice... I learned something. :D

I thought Gideon Adobo is Filipino, I google it again yeaa it's Spanish inspired dish lol. But it says even before the Spaniards came, early Filipinos cooked their food minimally by roasting, steaming or boiling. To keep it fresh longer, food was often cooked by immersion in vinegar and salt. Thus, early Filipinos could have been cooking its meat in vinegar, which is the basic process in making adobo. Then Chinese traders came with their soy sauce.

I think it was only inspired by other countries but the way we cook it is different from others and so we made our own Filipino Adobo.

Haha while reading I saw this saying... Philippine food was prepared by Malay settlers, spiced by the Chinese, stewed by the Spanish and hamburgerized by the Americans. :D

ewan ko lang ate Jangel ha..pero dito kasi sa cebu pag sinabi mong pritong manok/baboy pagtatawanan kalang -awkward hahaha...ang prito kasi dito ginagamit lng sa isda e.g. pinirito na isda . . .

yong humba dito eh may star anis, spring onion, soy sauce, sugar, water at pork at magic sarap din :p...tapos pinapakuluan 'til malapot at oily siya --- sa tagalog adobo nila yon....pero ang adobo dito ay deep fried lng...

@Maxwel,
It's a steamed ground pork mixed with peas, carrots, raisins, wrapped in aluminum foil. Some folks want to add some stuffs in the middle such as eggs like in the picture.
