Grew up absolutely hating the way my dad cooked food. All of it looked like literal diarrhea or random stuff stuffed into a pot with an awfully strong fish or vinegar smell. I ended up eating out a hell of a lot and eventually learned to cook for myself. Still hate filipino food.
>>7297393 Jesus the comments in this thread is cancerous as fuck. It really depends on how its cooked, for example, I love everything my mom makes in regards to Filipino food but I cannot stand anyone else making it because a lot of it lacks taste.
>>7297393 Pinoy here. Some are great but if you're looking for delicious stuff you're better off looking at our neighbor's cuisine. My favorite is "sinigang na baboy" which is just pork in some tamarind soup or something. Most Filipino cuisines are taken from other countries like Spain, Malay, China and other stuff considering our history.
Really if I have to be blatantly honest about it, its pretty bad and unhealthy.
>>7297393 My ex had a Flip mother and a Japanese father. She made no bones about preferring Japanese and Chinese cuisine to Filipino foods, and would only cook me adobo out of the entire country's cuisine. I said it couldn't possibly be that bad, so we drove two hours to the nearest Filipino restaurant (this was a major city, so it says something when a cuisine is just unreppresented). It really was that bad.
I knew a Filipino girl who started a catering business and ended up having to basically make everything western food with a twist because actual Filipino food was so unpopular.
>>7298758 Adobo is pretty tasty, especially when eaten with rice covered with banana leaves during lunch. Everything else about flip food is true in my book too, even the pancit which is from China manages to be bland tasting.
Korean here. I don't like Filipino cuisine imho senpai. I dislike Chinese cuisine even more. Vietnamese cuisine is good. Japanese cuisine is good. Haven't had enough Thai to form an opinion. Yes I like kimchi.
>>7297393 It depends on who's cooking. Everything my co-workers bring for lunch is slathered in fermented shrimp paste or fermented smelt sauce, then microwaved. The break room reeks like a fucking sewer at lunchtime. I eat in my office. My wife makes very good Filipino food because she doctors it up with ingredients giving it, to varying degrees, more Thai, Chinese, Korean, or American flair. She never cooks anything straight Filipino style, despite being Filipina because, well, plain Filipino food is gross. Get this: Ice cream flavor include avocado and corn with cheese. Fuuuuuck. Some of the pastries are okay: Pan de sal and hopia. Others are gross: There's one that's basically a huge sweet dinner roll slathered with margarine then topped with sugar and fake shredded cheddar cheese.
>>7300523 Sisig is super yummy drinking food: It's a hash of boiled then broiled hog ear and snout, which, when tender is diced and sautéd with garlic, onions, and Thai peppers. Savory, spicy, crunchy, chewy porky goodness. Very good with a cold Pilsner.
So I have had some Flip friends in the past and got to try a little bit of their food. It's generally not good. Which is kinda weird because they are located in the region with the best cuisines in the world. I enjoyed sisig and a few other dishes but for the most part the food was really bleh. And I never understood the adobo obsession, it's not a good dish.
I did go to a Flip restaurant twice and did like a few dishes there but it was years ago and I don't remember what I had other than sisig.
>>7297393 >what are your thoughts on filipino foods, /ck/? I don't know how a country that's located in asia and that was colonized by the Spanish can have more boring, worse-cooked and less healthy food than Great Britain but somehow the flips managed it.
I'm Filipino-Chinese. My dad has heart issues so every time my mom would cook Filipino food it would be without all the excess oil and salt. It was kind of a shock whenever we'd have "real" Filipino food at relative's parties because it was always swimming in oil and grease.
My favourite dish is pancit palabok. The others are just variations of Chinese dishes (siopao, pancit canton, grilled squid, etc). The garlic rice served at breakfasts can be really nice with fish.
I love Filipino desserts though, especially maja blanca and bibingka. Turon is really good too. Oh, and polvoron with the rice crispies.
