Must-try food in The Philippines II

Posted on 14 January 2013 by Dreidel Regala

Some time ago I’ve posted some Filipino must try food. But of course the list couldn’t accommodate all of them. In a country that was created to have thousands of islands with varying culture and diverse people, there will surely be a new delicacy for a stranger’s tongue. Here are some more for the foodie in you:

Bagnet

I’ve heard some people say the country’s cuisine is only for those who have acquired the taste, meaning you don’t like it at first but eventually do. But one thing I’m sure is there’s going to be a lot of taste for you. Try it out! After all there’s a whole different adventure in food.

Roti for me, roti for you!

Ao Nang Pancake (Roti) from D R on Vimeo.

This is a pancake (aka roti) that I got to try in Ao Nang, Thailand. It looks different from the western pancake we know but it tastes good. It’s very thin with the chosen filling wrapped inside then fried to a good crisp then topped with condensed milk. It’s sold on the streets by mostly Muslim vendors. For a cheap 20baht your afternoons will surely be a delight, oh and don’t forget your fruit shake!
