Did you just eat that straight?
I like Filipino people, but I've gotta admit that Filipino food makes my stomach churn
what was for desert?? dog sh!t??
I will NOT be marrying a Filipino woman.
Prolly a good thing as a Filipino woman wouldn't want to marry you
they would clash in the kitchen, a bowl full of of the most disgusting sh!t in the universe vs. a minimalistic portion of salmon and veggies
chilled ripe mangoes.
twilight delight is one of the more adventurous dishes I must say. If you've tasted German blood sausages, it has the same subtle taste of blood. By cooking the stew with vinegar for several hours, the acid masks all of the gamey taste of the pork blood and offal, and all you really savor is the rich texture of cooked blood and the flavor of the meats enhanced with spices.
Obviously, you've never had much experience with Filipino food before.
you're right, but c'mon, look at what you just posted.
filipino people I know put salt on canned peaches lulz.
must admit that the "barbecue" (which is what they termed pork on a stick) was pretty epic lol
I made this joke about 5 pages ago genius.
I will clarify; I grew up with a lot of Filipino friends throughout my childhood in different countries, have actually eaten Filipino food more often than I led on, and I do like a few things - I have nice memories of eating pancit bihon at outdoor markets and stuff, and I've enjoyed adobo on occasions, tons of lumpia, etc.... but as a kid I would've had no idea that dishes existed like that dinuguan above, balut, a lot of the offal stews and stuff - never even offered to me as a guest. I'm pretty sure a lot of Filipino people themselves know that some of that stuff is kinda raunchy and keep a lot of it to themselves.
FWIW, Korean people are the same way about a lot of their dishes, and I don't really like much Korean food - I live in Korea and hardly ever eat Korean food really. Just tired of a lot of the dirty places serving up similarly raunchy offal and pork-heavy stuff, and everything has to be fermented - it can be a bit much, oft times. This is why Korean food is often marketed as bulgogi/K-BBQ et al, kimchi, and some bibimbap and stews revolving around tofu usually. Most people don't commonly get to see the blood sausages, the clotted blood stews, smoked trotters and head, fermented skate, etc, etc. That stuff is disgusting to me as well.
It's not the ingredients, it's the preparation, combinations, and actual taste.
had fermented skate in Iceland... jesus christ that was nasty
pancit & eggrolls is like the Filipino version of spaghetti & meatballs
growing up what I like is the seafood dishes and the different ways of flavoring and preparing them. the Spanish influenced dishes like lechon, paella, and different stews are yummy too. I'm not too fond of the more native Filipino dishes
You might be surprised that in the Philippines where's it's an Island archipelago made up of different provinces each with their own distinct cultures and languages, each province has their own flavor of cooking so it's really hard to classify what Filipino cuisine is because it's so diverse.
Papa Johns peperoni pizza... Don't ask me why.
