The in-thing now in the Philippines is to roast only just the pork belly as that is the most desirable part, so it's no longer the same as that of other countries. So it now qualifies as Filipino food?



Seriously, are you genuinely interested in good Filipino food? Or did you start this thread to find out what other yucky Filipino stuff you can find?

I'm guess I'm talking more about the Filipino foods you can find at eateries and restaurant...surely there are others that are world class apart from lechon? How come not a single Filipino dish is well known globally, only balut for how disgusting the idea is?

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.
Yes, when you eat balut, you can eat the whole thing (of course except the shell). Surprisingly, the one that is tough and almost unpalatable is the egg white on the side (which looks just like normal boiled egg white but much much tougher and drier). Many people do not eat that part. Better get a "younger" balut too, as I don't like the feel of the feathers. Anyway, I generally don't like balut and haven't eaten one in ages.

It is not even sold in the Philippines. In China, they sell it downtown of Shenzhen and there are also restaurants that serve dog dishes, it is not like that in the Philippines.

Yes it might not be as visible but most Chinese do not eat it...and those that do usually for special occasions. I think maybe in the Phils it's more undercover.

I didn't realize they already have branches in Singapore. This is a Filipino restaurant chain: Gerry's Grill - Offers grilled seafood and Filipino favorites to exotic cuisine and tastefully prepared beer mates and pica-pica |
They also have an online menu. I am not exactly big on Filipino food, but I like the various sisig dishes, squid, baked scallops, baked mussels ("tahong" in the menu).

It is known because it is different !
Postman, why do you insist so much about the unpopularity of Filipino cuisine ? As I said before, there are so many cuisines that are not popular all over the world, after all, there are so many countries, not all countries can take the spot.
So what if it is not popular ? If our cuisine is not popular, there are other things we are popular for...Philippines is known for boxing.
Philippines is known for producing nurses, engineers and domestic helpers globally. So, enough about the unpopularity of Filipino cuisine because if those countries you always mention are popular for their cuisine, they are not popular in other things too.

Lol Singapore is more popular in almost every way than the Phils. Indeed, the GDP of Singapore is higher than your entire country! Last year Singapore was the second most visited city in the world.
