Filipino food can seem unappetizing especially when compared to some of the more popular SE Asian cuisines. Compared to other SEA cuisines it's very bland, well it's pretty bland period, but it's usually served w/mixture of soy sauce, vinegar and chili for you to add to your test. Here in the US I think one reason it hasn't caught on is because Filipino restaurants cater to Filipinos and don't seem to make any effort to appeal to other people.
A couple of years ago in Dumaugete City at a restaurant on the boulevard. I forgot the name of the restaurant, the chef there showed that Filipino food can be delicious and appeal to anybody in the right hands. If there were chefs in the US (are anywhere else I suppose) interested in drawing attention to Filipino food and attracting non-Filipinos they could build a good market for it.

- It's not too colorful and not too much spicy.

Rellenong Bangus (Stuffed Milkfish)
Thanks for the post! What is the milkfish stuffed with?

Some of the dishes posted so far seem kind of promising though I think I might have experienced their close relatives earlier from other southeast asian cuisines. I'll probably head out somewhere in Queens looking for this (large Filipino population there) sometime soon. It's been a good long while since I've had some sinigang.

The Rellenong Bangus (Stuffed Milkfish) is actually not easy to cook lol.

- Inside it has onion, carrots, potato, green peas, raisins, egg, and flour to coat the fish

you have to remove all the fish bones and remove the fish meat carefully without destroying the fish skin because you'll put those stuffed inside. then fry it

We also do this to Rellenong Pusit (Stuffed Squid) & Rellenong Manok (Stuffed Chicken)

I've been to every SE Asian country, except Myanmar. I did not find food look much different. The Thai food in the states differs from the real Thai food I had in Bangkok

But Asia has some of the tastiest cuisines in the world. Filipino food just doesn't compare with its neighbors at all.
I haven't had Filipino food so I can't comment, but I do agree that Asia is the "World Cup" of food.

What I've had was awesome.

The main problem I run into is that I'm a strict vegetarian, bordering on vegan. I'm sure that there is *plenty* of Filipino food that doesn't use meat, but meat-centric dishes are the centerpiece of any Filipino restaurant I've been to.

Interestingly, the first dish I learned to cook from someone outside my family was lumpia, from a teacher in third grade - she was making them for the class and I proudly told her I knew how to cook and wanted to help. She showed me how to fill, roll, and deep-fry them (she brought one of those little coutertop deep fryers in). The filling was beef, carrots, and peas with some sort of sauce mixed in... don't know for the life of me what it was. I've made a few different vegetarian lumpia recipes over the years since I quit eating meat.
