I am Filipino and I do agree that Filipino food doesn't look as appetizing as the cuisine from neighbouring countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and China even though I eat Filipino food everyday. In my opinion, everyday Filipino food doesn't seem to fit much in restaurants because of the appearance and in most cases, they should be prepared with rice. There are exceptions though like the Lumpia and various types of Pancit but dishes like the Dinuguan or Balut would scare most non-Filipinos away once they know what they are.

In Portugal they have a stew like our Caldereta and it is not always just with rice. They also serve it with small mini squares of toasted bread sauted in Vegetable strings and Chorizo and some salad on the side and it looks really nice. Problem with us Filipinos we do not really try to put some art when we are serving the plate ( we serve the rice in a separate plate and the main dish on a separate plate too ) . Abroad they serve it all together but there are other things that go with it like espresso size cup of rice, some fries or baked potatoes and a salad. In Spain, when they serve Caldereta , some just serves it just without anything because there are already potatoes in it, so that serves as the carbohydrates already.
