Most of the times when I travel to a new place, I've already had the chance to try the local food. Not with this trip to the Phillippines. I really had never tried Filipino food before. 

It seems to be hard to find outside of the Phillippines. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Thai food is everywhere. But Filipino?

I think Filipino food is one of the most underrated cuisines. It deserves more attention. 

Here are some of the dishes I didn't even know existed before arriving in the Phillippines. 

Adobo - chicken, pork, seafood, or veggies marinated and cooked in vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic 

Pork Sisig - made out of pork cheeks and chicken liver, finely chopped and served on a sizzling plate 

Lumpia - Filipino spring rolls

Kalamansi - a fruit in between an orange and a lemon, gives a super tasty juice

Halo-Halo (pronounced hollow - hollow) - a dessert with evaporated milk, crushed ice, and lots of other stuff like red beans, jelly cubes, coconut, flan, ube, etc. 

This is all very tasty stuff! I'll definitely try to cook some of these dishes at home. One sauce that will be definitely added to our list of staples is the Filipino native sauce: vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic.

    @juliasaxena 🙌 Filipino here. Most of the tourist here always wonder why there is always vinegar and soy sauce on most of the Filipino foods.
