Here are some equally and more familiar Pinoy foods to celebrate:
Adobo is the more popular known dish in Filipino cuisine. This Pinoy's Best is a pork stew with vinegar and soy sauce. You can have Adobo as chicken or mixed of pork & chicken and even seafood (squid) variations.
What's good with this Pinoy food is that it does not easily get spoiled, so it's also the favorite packaged meal for mountaineers and travellers.
Another famous Pinoy food that I really like is Sinigang. Tamarinds (sampalok), tomatoes, and onions makes this dish truly with such a distinctive taste. Sinigang can also be cooked with pork, shrimp, or beef and also chicken but in this case, it's sometimes called as Sinampalukang Manok.
Tinola is a chicken soup with wedges of green papaya or chayote and moringa leaves (marungay or malunggay). We usually eat Tinola during dinner. Sinigang is best served during lunch while Adobo is all-time good in any meal of the day.
The Pinoy foods for the day was really superb because they have captured its authentic taste. (Pinoy na pinoy talaga) It's super yummy and we super missed it. Good thing, the place I am staying has a good chef and also we can order personal menu of Filipino cuisine.
