Five Filipino Faves

Since we're featuring Filipino cuisine this week, here are five favorites of mine. For those that know me, I have this special wish for Filipino cuisine to hit the mainstream just as Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and Thai have. Filipino cuisine has it's own unique and delicious offerings which should be highlighted and the masses should be educated or made aware of. So take note... these Filipino dishes should not be missed!

Chicken & Vegetable Lumpia

These eggrolls have a tasty filling of chicken and vegetable unlike other eggrolls you've tried.
Once you bite into the crispy wrapper, you won't be sorry...

Lechon Kawali (Roasted Pork)

If getting a whole roasted pig on the table is a bit more effort that you'd like, try this version where you get all the flavorful pork, a bit of crispness and a whole lot of delicious.

Kamayan Citrus Shrimp

Shrimp gets a touch of tropical flavor in this quick and easy recipe...

Chicken Afritada

Chicken gets comfy in this stovetop stew with soy, tomato sauce,
garlic, onions and colorful peppers...

Purple Yam (Ube) Swirl Ice Cream

Purple yam ice cream may sound strange but it's purely Filipino!...
