What are Your Top 10 Favorite Filipino Food?

We Filipinos are known for our positive values, hospitality, being hard-working, and our ability to face whatever challenges that life brings – with a smile in our face. On top of that, we are also known to have a great passion for food – to the point of considering eating as a hobby.

Of course, the last statement does not apply to all; although it covers the majority.

Let’s talk about food, our favorite Filipino Foods.

What are your comfort foods? What are the foods that you find irresistible?

By the way, we are also known for being shy and quiet. I think that I should start the conversation by posting my food list first as an ice breaker, then you’ll follow by sending-in your comments.

How does that sound? Alright, here it goes…

Here are 10 of the Best Filipino Food for me:

1. Pork Menudo

2. Pancit Molo

3. Pork Binagoongan

4. Maja Blanca

5. Inihaw na Liempo

6. Dinuguan at Puto

7. Leche Flan

8. Lechon Kawali

9. Beef Kaldereta

10. Lumpiang Sariwa

How about you? Can you list your top 10 favorites?

    I am only half Filipina and was raised in the states. I don’t speak Tagalog anymore and I’m not sure of the names of half of the things my mom’s friends used to cook. My mom just started blending her dishes with stuff that my dad grew up with (southern cooking). Here are the ones I know and love:

    1. Pancit bihon-I like it with longanisa, but usually prepare it with pork or chicken because that is what I have. I also like to squeeze calamansi over mine.

    2. Adobo (pork or chicken)

    3. Biko and Sumon

    4. Sinigang with beef

    5. Steamed fish

    6. Leche flan

    7. Siopao-I like it without the egg, though.

    8. Lumpia

    9. Afritada (chicken)

    10.Dinuguan-I like this over rice. I can’t eat a lot because it is so rich. I don’t get it too often, just when my mom’s friends have parties and have it there.

    These are my top ten that I can think of. For special occasions at my mom’s, we love a whole roasted pig. When I’m visiting my mom, she’ll bake a whole milkfish (bangus) and I love pan de sal! I don’t have a Filipino bakery where I live or an oriental market that caters to Filipinos (mostly Chinese and Vietnamese) so I make do with what I can find around here. She doesn’t cook as much anymore because it’s just my dad and her and he’s a truck driver. She’s usually with her friends and they usually have most of the Filipino food!
