The Philippines

The Philippines has great cuisine, influenced by the many colonizers, such as the Spanish, but it is not so much a place with restaurants one would classify as “foodie destinations”. As such, this page will list some of my favorite foods of The Philippines you definitely should try.

Kare Kare – this is a stew made with a savory peanut butter type sauce containing ox tail, tripe and various greens. It is absolutely delicious and must be eaten, as most Filipino dishes are, with rice. Traditionally, you would also add bagoong, which is a condiment made from fermented shrimp.
