Oh I don't know much about pinoy food, just heard it wasn't very good. Maybe lacklustre is still the best term. Sure it depends on the cook and ingredients, but it just seem the cuisine isn't as highly regarded as other Asian cuisines.
In order to continue any discussion, WHAT CAN BE CONSIDERED FILIPINO FOOD?

Well I guess some people buck the trend.

Yes, I am really bucking the trend because I get tired of Thai food though I like spicy food.
I never had a good Vietnamese food yet. I ate in a good Vietnamese restaurant in Paris but nothing special.
Nothing special about Korean or Japanese food either except for fried Japanese beef.
I don't like Chinese food, like I feel I would get sick after because their food is floating in oil.

Of course because pig is commonly eaten in many parts of the world.
But not all do it the same way and not all consume it as much as in the Philippines.

Well everyone has different tastebuds. Some are more adventurous or discerning than others.

Personally I can appreciate most cuisines, Asian or otherwise, although there are some dishes that disagree with me.

I'm guessing you don't like balut btw? lol

It's funny because balut is probably the most famous Filipino food.

I eat Balot ... I just don't like so much the hairy part. I am adventurous when it comes to trying different flavours.I am just not adventurous when it comes to trying different animals like dogs, cats, frogs, rats, snakes, turtles and insects. Also, chicken feet, chicken neck... Quite gross for me.

Well when you eat balut don't you eat all the parts of the duck?

I'm surprised you eat balut since you seem kind of fussy.

Yeah I've still a bit hesitant about organ meats, which are also a common thing in many Asian cuisines including Filipino.

I would try a grasshopper or something...frogs, maybe wild rats, snake too...I've had crocodile and goanna, here in Australia, they really do taste just like a type of bird, a bit like turkey.

Chicken feet is a delicacy in China, Jamaica and parts of the Southern US actually. I think maybe the Phils too right? Philippines also eat dog, at least traditionally.

Dogs are part of many Asians cuisines, including Chinese cuisine.

I personally do not eat dogs and it's against my ethic and I can tell you a good 90% of Filipinos do not eat do.

Organ meats are also common in European cuisine. You should probably already know that given you have discerning palette and an extensive knowledge of world cuisine.

Yes, it's not as highly regarded compared to other cuisines, but THE POSTMAN is so curious about it and very passionate about bringing it down, there must be something about it

Dogs are not popular in the Philippines. It is only eaten by " some " of the lowest class of men.
