heheheh Fiona!

I LOVE good Filipino home cooking! Pancit Bihon, Bibingka, Chicken Adobo, Empanadas, Roast Pork and most of all LUMPIA! but for the past many years, living away from my Filipino friends in Chicago, Filipino restaurant food $ucks! It's greasy, heavy, and everything my friends' cooking was not.

I will really enjoy if you share your recipes, Atala, as I enjoy cooking Filipino food.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I love Filipino food.

Here is a link to a Sisig recipe that looks close to what I used to eat when I was there.

Filipino food really is a special treat. I have heard many Chefs make the false assumption that it is strictly taking dishes from other cuisines and making them their own, but to that I say you may have never really enjoyed true filipino cuisine. I am a professional Chef and my wife is from the Philippines. So I get to eat authentic filipino cuisine often. When we visit the Philippines we also travel throughout the country and many of the regions not only have their own language (Tagalog is the National Language), but their own dishes as well. I guess one way to compare it would be to take spanish dishes from Spain and compare them to the dishes of Mexico, they are that different. I look forward to this discussion. Salamat !

Arrow Our top 10 favorite pinoy dishes...

TOP 10

I’ve put together what I consider to be a short list of the most popular and most asked for Filipino foods (asked for and demanded by my family)… I should mention that this list is no way in any particular order and if you enjoy Filipino food just as we do, It may be that your favorite dish did not make the list, but doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be there…
If you would like the recipes for any dish in the following list, just let me know and I’ll go ahead and post it in forum.
I truly hope you enjoy making and tasting the following…
CHICKEN APRETADA (I’ve been promised the recipe)
Let me go ahead and make another delicious entry to our Pinoy delacacies... I hope you like it...
Kare Kare
What you will need…

* 2 oxtail
* 2 pig hocks
* 7 cups water
* Pinch salt & pepper
* 1/2 cup oil
