The Philippines is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia and it consists of 7,107 islands that are categorized broadly under three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Philippines is surrounded with water and rich in natural resources. And when it comes to Filipino foods, it sure is over the top and incomparable. Filipino food and style of cooking have evolved over many centuries from its Austronesian origins to a mixed cuisine of Malay, Spanish, Chinese, and American, as well as other Asian and Latin influences adapted to indigenous ingredients and the local palate.
In every Filipino event and gatherings, our table is always overflowing with delicious food from appetizer, dessert, main dish and more. Well, we don’t have to be in the Philippines to enjoy scrumptious and sumptuous Filipino cuisine aka sariling atin.
