You are wrong,Not only in Indo or Philip but many countries in Southeast Asia are still were more tribal.In Indonesia, there are ethnic tribes that life is still very primitive, they live in the mountains and very far away from modern life, you only see this vidio, you may feel stunned .. and I do not feel embarrassed about this ....

Yea, like Russian hamburgers are a Russian dish. I get you.

Why not both? Both the Philippines and Mexico are inextricably linked and tied to each other historically because of the Manila Alcapulco Galleon trade. Lots of Mexicans have Filipino ancestry dating back to the early 1500s, and vice versa and then some due to cultural exchange and migration patterns. Philippines was even subordinate to Mexico for much of the Spanish colonial period, up until Mexico won it's independence when Philippines was made subordinate to the Spanish mainland.

But lechon or roast pig/pork is something that is special and unique to Filipino culture and gastronomy. Many foods have become iconic parts of different cultures. Also many cultures have exchanged and adapted foods to their cultures over the years. Potatoes are from South America, due to the post Columbian exchange, potatoes found their way around the rest of the world, and in places like Ireland today, Irish take pride in their potatoes. Cassava is originally from South America, and what is now Brazil, yet it is now eaten all over the world prepared in a variety of ways. The tomato is today considered to be something that defines Italy, yet tomatoes came from the Western Hemisphere, or the Americas. Tomatoes have not been part of Italian culture for that long. Also the concept of Italy as nation is a fairly even more recent concept. So by your claims or logic, tomatoes are not Italian, potato dishes like shepherd's pie is not Irish, and tomato dishes are not Italian, and pasta is said to have been created by the Chinese first as noodles as well, and macaroni is even said to have been Persian. Paella may have been based on dishes from India or Persia or elsewhere.

Also the history and meaning behind the development of the particular food, or dish in question or preparation behind it is what is more important than just soley where the food had originated from itself.

Also more than one country can share a similar dish by the same name or by a different name.

Mexico better food, more vibrant outgoing culture and the pre-Colombian architecture is amazing. The PI doesn't interest me at all.

I much prefer Mexican cuisine to Filipino cuisine though I usually prefer East and Southeast Asian cuisine to that of other parts of the world, Mexican cuisine simply has such a dazzling variety that I prefer it overall to Filipino. Part of it might be due to the vast expanse of Mexico and the large areas of many different climates in the country and the very distinctive different cooking traditions found in different regions.
