It seems that the Filipino food has finally entered into the minds and mouth of many people around the world…well around the USA. I grew up with the foods mentioned and some that I don’t know about as it depended on which area you were brought up. The Philippines consists of 7,000 islands with different dialects; I am from a tiny island called Camiguin, Island town called Mambajao – which some of you have no clue or idea as to where that is, as  most people knows the city called Manila, Iloilo and most recently a town hit by the storm called Tacloban.  There are many other places besides those you see advertise as the resort towns … But I digress, here are the 7 Dishes that you need to know:

1. Lumpia

2. Adobo

3. Pancit

4. Menudo

5. Inasal

6. Kare-Kare

7. Lechon Kawali

If you want to read more details as to the above selections – Go HERE.   When we were young, my Mom and Granda cooked all the above foods, as a kid, I didn’t care what it was called, it was comfort food for me now! I have cooked, Adobo, Pancit and Lumpia – have not tried to do the rest. The last one, my cousin is the King in Lechon! This is usually goes big when we have a party or any kind of gathering in our family. Its also an excuse to party and cook! Thank you for reading! CHEERS!!
