Here are Frannywanny.com, we turn the spotlight on to *what else?!* the food. Given that our country has been colonized by both the Spanish and the Americans, I'd say both influences have really played a big role in making our dishes pretty unique. Growing up, I've have the privilege to orient my taste buds to the varied flavors of our local cuisine. There's the coconut-loaded dishes that I truly love like the Gising Gising and Laing. Then we also have the deadly cholesterol-filled ones that are really sinful but are equally delicious such as the ever-famous Lechon, Crispy Pata and Sisig. Of course we have our native rice cakes (Kakanin) that makes our afternoon snack time complete and the rich Chocolate Eh made patiently using a batirol.
I can just go on and on about Filipino cuisine. However, I think it's best if I share with you my list of must-try places where you can dine and try the many Filipino dishes that are making our country famous among the food-loving community all around the world.
