I am in a city with many filipinos too, and filipino eateries are very few. I never had filipino food and I am not interested in it anyway. And I have eaten many Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Singaporean, and even Cambodian and Burmese food. Never had filipino food. The reason I am not interested in it is none of my friends had eaten filipino food and nobody recommend it to me.

I saw one restaurant who offer Halo-Halo here in Perth City, Australia. People actually look at what I am carrying and it seems they wanted to ask me where I bought it. I haven't seen a Filipino restaurant yet. I just saw it from the food court and then they offer different international food items and then saw Philippines best halo-halo on the list. Actually, there are some Filipino food that we can offer and it's just lack of promotion.




One of my favorite dessert. I tried the Yema too aside from Leche flan as one of the alternative ingredients and it's yummy too.

Ive never tried halo halo and I have no desire to because it doesnt look appealing. But our leche flan is sooo good.

Oh wait no it wasn't, it wasn't innards just pork belly in a dark sauce that tasted like soy-sauce.
thats probably Pork Adobo, I order it all the time, it's a popular dish at Filipino food stalls

you must eat it with a nice serving of rice to balance the salty flavor

Filipino food is too greasy, salty, and fried.

I like Filipino food. There are quite a few Filipino eateries where I live and every now and then I like to get some Filipino eats. If its early in the day I usually like to get some tapsilog or a mami soup. A filipino dish I really like is caldereta.

At least your food is better than Indian or Bangladeshi
