I guess it tastes pretty similar to our otak-otak.

I don't find anything special about Filipino food. Thai and Vietnamese taste a lot better, imo.

And I think it'd be hard to compete with big, popular cuisines from China, Korean, and Japan. The only South East Asian country that comes near is Thai food followed by Vietnam behind 1,000000000 miles

I guess so. Philippine Tamales has Mexican influence from their native Tamale/Tamales.

What are the mix of Otak Otak? & most of the Filipino food we don't usually use that much spicy.
I notice a lot likes spicy food.

Otak Otak is similar to other Filipino food
the way it cooks it similar to our sweet delicacy "Tupig" except it's not fish.

And not forgetting Malaysian/Indonesian/Singaporean food too. But those have distinctive Indian and Chinese components.

I think you're a flamer, but anyway...SE Asian cuisines are my favourite Asian cuisines in general, although I love Korean, Japanese and some Chinese too. Malaysian/Indonesian and Thai specifically, although Vietnamese is also good.

Oh, yes - Singaporean food! One of the most popular restaurants in San Francisco is this Singaporean place. It's like a mixture of Indian/Chinese/Malayasian food. I like those Indian pancakes - very good!!!

I think Indian cuisine can become popular if they tweek a few things, but this thread is about South Asians. Anyways!
