Filipino love stews. Stews with tomato sauce were all introduced by the Spanish and most of the time have the same ingredients " Poratoes, Carrots, Peas and Green Olives.
Those don't look too bad. Quite hearty, like casseroles.

Yes it doesn't have the same taste and colour which is why Filipino Paella taste and look different from Spanish Paella, that's what I said in my previous post that it doesn't taste and look so authentic as Spanish Paella.

They don't look bad at all. These stews are always present in town fiestas as they are considered special. Filipino stews are similar to Portuguese stews. Caldereta has a Mediterranean look because of the tomatoes, peas, carrots and Green Olives.

Here are some fine Filipino dining restaurant.
http://www.spot.ph/eatdrink/54829/10...ants-in-manila





people usually know more the street food than the other Filipino cuisine due to lack of promotion. People would rather go to a popular food chain like McDonalds, Wendys, Subway, Jollibee, etc. although 'Mang Inasal' is affordable Filipino food chain.

He was able to make " native " filipino foods like " Pinakbet " look pretty. I am surprised Iloilo's signature dish Kadios is also included.

Well, you can "thank" the Spanish for making the Philippines what it is today.

Even their 'halo halo' etc just doesn't compare to the sheer variety of desserts you get in Singapore, Malaysia or even Indonesia/Thailand (it's my opinion Singapore/Malaysia is the real king of desserts in Asia).
Singapore and Malaysia have a triracial advantage in that their cuisine is a fusion of Indian/Chinese/Austronesian(non-Hispanic) styles so it is an unfair comparison from the start.
