The Philippines have drawn visitors to its islands each year - the blue waters, the lush green landscape, welcoming locals and most importantly the food! Whether you've visited the islands or not, Filipino cuisine is a great option if you love exploring new flavours.
Getting to know Filipino cuisine
The food cooked in the Philippines is known for its rich flavour. Generally heavy in meats, the dishes feature pork, chicken, fish and beef delicacies which extract flavours from every part of the animal, resulting in a memorable plate of food.
Celebrated as 'the next big thing' in the culinary world, Filipino cuisine has some must-try options. Adobo is a stewed meat preparation which uses soy sauce, bay leaves and vinegar among other ingredients to bring you the flavours of the archipelago to your plate.
Sisig and Filipino breakfast are some of the other famous options which take your palate on a tour of the islands surrounded by aquamarine waters through the melt-in-your-mouth pork accompaniments. Each dish has a mix of spices and broths which leave you wanting more without having to step outside your comfort zone too much.
