Thanks, joe for sharing that. I do like beef steak too, but been thinking what filipino style food to tell abt that i like. Honest, when i hear filipino style food, what comes to mind is the 'Sweet' style tomato sauce often used for pasta here, but which i no longer appreciate as i did. There's also the tamis-anghang or sweet-spicy ketchup that goes w/ many fried dishes or meatloaf.

My tastes have so shifted, u see. I still appreciate rellenong bangus, deboned milkfish mixed w/ grated carrots, onions, etc. (but can live the rest of my life without lechon). Took so long to make when we were young, removing the small bones (tinik, we call them, different from the buto or bones of chicken). I have learned to eat veggies cooked in coconut milk like moringa and taro, also the simple veggie things they cook up north called bulanglang w/ some ginger in the broth. And salads from the malabar spinach, wc the children still havent learned to eat=).

Almost missed to mention the different rice cakes made from glutinous rice!

The only stuff I have ever had was Bicol at a pot-luck lunch at an old job but I really liked it. Thankfully the guy who brought it tamed down the amount of spice in it.

It's bicol express, named after the province of the bicolanos.

Well, I wasn't too far off. This is what happens when a white guy starts talking about the food of a different culture.

How much filipino style food have you tried? :p
We have several Filipino friends, and they are always bringing out some new dish when we are at their houses. Out of maybe 20, so far, nothing has grabbed me.
