Fattening myself away in abroad is a norm. If I don’t try eating any of their food, I will feel so guilty that I wish I could just die.
For breakfast, you will definitely have to try Pan De Sal, and you’ve gotta eat it hot.
You can spread some butter or pineapple jam or peanut butter with it.
If you do not eat it when it’s hot, the bread will be hardened.
Trust me, you wouldn’t enjoy biting with all your teeth on a hardened bread.
Longganisa is a Filipino sausage. Yes, a pork sausage.
When I was away in the Philippines, PORK is the main dish of every main meal.
Yes, from breakfast to dinner, you will definitely see PORK.
Longganisa is served in most of the eateries that serve breakfast.
It’s their culture to even take rice in the morning.
This is their rice.
You go to any cafe, restaurant or hawker stalls, they will serve you rice in this shape.
This is a typical set of lunch for the Filipinos.
I find them similiar to our Chinese or Malay food.
After all, we are all Asians, rite?
Barbecue Pork aka Pork Satay
Now, when you go to Andoks fast food chain, you will definitely see this.
Please order this when you try Andoks. Barbecue Pork is simply the best satay I’ve ever had.
No other satay can beat this. Not even our Kajang’s Haji Samuri satays can beat this.
Kare-kare is Filipino style of curry
This is not really my favourite Filipino dish.
Somehow you just have to try it because this is their style of curry.
It tastes like peanut butter curry to me.
However, it’s best eaten with shrimp paste in fact.
I love this soup.
Pork Sinigang is a soup boiled with lots of vege and pork. It is sour like our salted vege soup.
It’s a MUST to try this anyway.
I actually enjoyed eating this fish.
Somehow I just couldn’t recall the name of this fish.
Can someone tell me what is the name of this funny-looking fish.
Pork-lovers, you will definitely love Crispy Pata.
It tastes like our “Siew Yuk” (Roasted Pork).
Isn’t it lovely to find so much pork in the Philippines?
Baby Pork Ribs with rice is served in a small cafe in Camp John Hay, Baguio.
The pork ribs is sweet and tasty. I just couldn’t describe it in words how wonderfully it tastes.
Are you hungry right now after I have shown you so much of Filipino food?
NOW, it’s time for Desserts!!!
Banana Alamode is a pan-fried banana with ice cream and chocolate syrup.
OoOoo, this is heavenly.
I found this dessert in Little John, in Camp John Hay, Baguio.
It’s quite cheap though. Only costs about 67 Pesos (RM 5.55) for one Banana Alamode.
Halo-halo, the Filipino Ice Kacang
In the Philippines, Halo-halo is widely served.
This is their style of Ice Kacang.
It is often added with a scoop of ice-cream in Yam flavour.
You just have to remember to try Halo-halo when you visit this country.
Pastor Victor and friends then brought me to Pizza Volante in the main street of Baguio City.
It is a famous hang-out place where people snack and chat for hours till midnight.
I was there at midnight and you will be amazed to see many people flocking this cafe.
In Pizza Volante, you definitely have to try this.
Just tell anyone that you want to have an affair.
I mean, to have a Choco Vanilla Affair.
If you have had this, trust me, it will definitely give you indescribable pleasure of having this affair.
Because you will end up having Food Orgasm!! OOOPS!!!
