Filipino food!

Post by ManchVegas » Sun Sep 30, 2018 10:36 pm

I'm loving my new hood.

There's a Filipino restaurant just down the street.

What are good dishes for a newbie?

EMG?

They get great reviews on yelp and they are cheap.

I don't really cook so if I can get a dish from there vs. a big chain burger or chicken I'd rather go there.

Had awesome Thai food last night. The soups alone are a meal.

Does Filipino cuisine have that soupy thing going on?

Lol. Just thought of Soupy Sales. Anyone remember him?

Thanks guys. So nice to be in a multi cultural community. The food options are amazing here! I was getting so sick of the burger and fries things up in NH.

Don't get me wrong, I still like the occasional burger and fries but can't make a steady diet out of it. The Filipino place just wowed me.

Yup. It's a delicacy.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

There's also an entire neighborhood of mostly Vietnamese people downtown. I'm guessing the food options there are amazing.

Vietnamese food is generally better than Filipino

That is not Filipino.

Filipinos do make curry though.

There's an Adobo Chicken recipe I really want to try. It's done in a crock pot. It's on Allrecipes.com I might make that and give mommy a break from cooking.

I'm thinking I could serve it with the cuke salad and rice.

Has anyone else tried the Annie Chuns rice bowls? That's a kitchen staple. I've posted about them before and everyone was like "How lazy. You can't even boil rice!" but that's not the point. It's a good serving size for two people and it's still way cheaper than take out or delivery.

People tend to be pound wise and penny foolish.

This recipe calls for bone-in chicken. Is that the legit way it's served in the Phills?

I do think bone-in chicken is more flavorful.

Yeah, that's all correct except here they'd use cane vinegar. You probably won't find it there, so that recipe is close enough.
