Meet the Filipino Food

Featured Comment

Traveling is a great way to relax and witness the other culture in every country. As we travel, it is not only the places that we want to see but also taste the cuisine or dishes in each country or places that we visit. 

So let me take you to Philippines and indulge what it has to offer.

The Filipino food is influenced by many cultures, mainly Malay, Spanish and Chinese cultures.

Three hundred years of Spanish rule had a strong influence on the food in the Philippines: The Spanish brought with them their own cuisine and many of these foods were adopted into the Filipino diet.

This colonization had a major impact on Filipino cuisine and have improved its taste buds as people loves to explore when it comes to food.

So I would like to introduce some of our dishes that  you may want to try. 

 

1. Adobo

Adobo refers to a method of marinating and stewing any cut of meat or fish in a briny mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, and spices.

2. Lechon

Lechon is a roasted whole pig slowly cooked over charcoal heat. It’s crispy skin  will keep you eating more!

3. Isaw

Ukranian traditional food

Borsh 

Initially, this dish was made of 30 ingredients  of meets and vegetables

Chicken Kiev

Chicken Kiev is the dish that has brought fame to Ukraine. The simple combination of fresh chicken filet with a piece of butter is considered to be quite exquisite all over the world. To ensure that butter does not flow during the frying, you’ll need a lot of practice and true professionalism.

Vareniki

image.png.5e146c23a6124e05bb32a2a764e289f9.pngVareniki is a kind of dumpling. It is made of dough, but the filling depends on the imagination and taste preferences of the chef and their guests. Cabbages, meat, mushrooms, cottage cheese, cherries, currant or potatoes are the most typical fillings. Savory or sweet, vareniki turns out to be succulent. Ukrainians put sour cream almost in every dish, and these dumplings often get the same treatment. Begin your meal with one of these—you won’t regret it.

Omg love it! Looks tempting 😄 With the definition of the Chicken Kiev is indeed quite hard to cook especially when you said that it has butter then you will fry it. As we all know that butter is easily get burnt. I might check this recipe. 

Thanks for sharing viksen😃

Filipino cuisine seems yummy, except for the balut, that I'll pass thanks! :D 

Here are some pics of what's traditional and most eaten here in Serbia:

pljeskavica 

punjena_pljeskavica.thumb.jpg.b4706117cf3540aae468775700265450.jpg

mućkalica

sarma 

klopa.thumb.jpg.756f90dc409ee759a0f3f54cde876186.jpg

These would be some dishes for the main course, on the side, you can always have ajvar:

20130903-265217-ajvar.jpg.45e05908855efe6616a83ab30fa346bf.jpg

And when you're already full, you still gotta find some room for krempita 1188763_recept-dana-krempita_ff.thumb.jpg.509a593f5a4af21f36ac42a807521c33.jpg

Have a little rest, then reach out for kompot:
