Of course love to each his each own. But they say Thailand cuisine is better. Thai food is more spicy.

Thai cuisine is one right up there as one of the top cuisines in the world. Mostly because the cuisine was developed to suit the taste of a King...and than everyone in the Kingdom wanted that same style.

Filipino food...on the other hand...is more practical, plain. It's just a functional food.

Let's put it this way...you don't see many Thai people or Thai communities outside of Thailand, but you'll see tons of Thai restaurants - with tons of non-Thai people eating in their restaurants. You will see large Filipino communities pretty much everywhere throughout Asia and immigration-oriented countries (USA, Canada, Australia, etc.)...but few Filipino restaurants, and the few Filipino restaurants you see, you'll rarely see a non-Filipino in them.

It's not that the food in the Philippines is bad...it isn't bad. It's just plain, functional, not that interesting. But if you do want to try Filipino food...the one that pretty much every Filipino and non-Filipino loves, is Adobo.

But, as far as cuisines go, Thailand is well-known as one of the better cuisines in the world.

I like sinigang, sisig, kinilaw and kare-kare better than adobo. Adobo is just the more staple viand but I bet not all Filipino that's their fave.

Thai food is presented better and more spicy less greasy. other than that, the taste and how it is cooked is just the same.

thai no contest.

pinoys first need to rename their country back to its pre-hispanic pre-islamic roots and fly the flag of garuda like indonesia. Why would you want your country named after king phillip of spain?! Lapu lapu would turn over in his grave.

2nd balut. Nuff said. Pinoys are supposed to be catholics and muslims. Both preach anti-abortion. Eating balut is eating an abortion. gross.

That "no contest" claim is just so naive and so so for me. That is only a byproduct of so called bias, prejudice and to some extent excessive media propaganda.

Exactly. Thai food for me is just so so overrattteed! Each has their own taste and palate preference. I only look at the presentation as secondary. Taste and variety are still the most important factor. Thai foods are excellent but not in any way out of this world. As they say, simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

If eating balut is abortion then what would you call eating the adult chicken? Killing? Murder? Homicide? Isnt murder considered a mortal sin too among Christians and Muslims?
That doesnt make sense to me.

Thai food runs a much larger gamut of complexity and sophisication. I attribute that in part to being an area that was the seat of several empires and imperial kitchens and some of those enpires had a high degree of organizational complexity which allows for the more sophisticated dishes. Thai food also tends to use more herbs especially fresh herbs, generally but not always uses more spices, and is often less greasy.
