So it is not something with the presentation, right? In the near future our food will also be know. It only needs more exposure.

But you have to agree with me that in Fiesta's or any accassion, you can't eat the filipino dish without. :D

eto ang example bai Kare-kare, we think na masarap sya kasi sinasahug natin sa rice at na neutralize. Imagine mo yung foreigner na hindi sanay sa rice then na tikman yang kare-kare, so of course hindi talaga nya ma appreciate.

Ngayon ko lang napag-nilay-nilayan ang title nitong thread. Gumamit si TS ng salitang "don't like". Ayaw ba talaga ng mga Americans sa pinoy cuisine or hindi lang sila familiar dito? Hindi po kaya mas appropriate na gamitin ang salitang " not popular or familiar" ? Honest question lang po ito. What do you think Paclanders? :D

Kasi ang pinoy food, kelangan may kanin talaga.

Very few pinoy food is actually good to be eaten alone. Which is something Americans and Europeans like. Try eating our foods without rice. Its too much. Either too salty, to sweet, too bitter, too everything. We designed that because we eat it with rice which acts as a form of neutralizer. Eat salty ulam, sabayan ng kanin :mrgreen:

Now most foreigners who try our food eat them without rice. And they find it to be too overpowering.

My presentation ba yan? Why is it so expensive?


There are cheap caviar. Depende sa pinanggalingang isda. Sturgeon is on the endangered list, therefore caviar from sturgeon if still found is expensive.

"Most" is the word. Some will even say our food looks disgusting but tasty.

they will not fish if it looks like fish ie. with the head. :lol:

some of our food if served by itself are cloyingly sweet like longanisa, tocino, etc. some Americans don't like that. solution: use them as an ingredient of dish as in an omelet, as a taco filling etc.

Sorry for getting, somewhat, out of topic.

In 1991, there was this Puti who came with my friend to a Pinoy party. Sinundo ko pa. On the way to party, he seemed really interested about Pinoy cuisine. But as the trip progressed ( it was about an hour's drive), his iterest started to sound more and more condescending of what Pinoys might eat.

When we got to the party, the buffet was well on the way. There was Chicken/Pork Adobo; Kare-Kare; Pancit; Lumpia; Menudo; Leche Flan; Fruit Salad; Lechon Kawali; and more.

But there was also a huge Steamed Rockfish. He stuck with me on the line, obviously enjoying his "superiority." When we got to the fish, I told him, "good they saved the eye for you. You're a special guest." With that I took my fork and dug out the eye and put it in my mouth, sucked on it, and let out only the little white pupil.

I then told him, "let's turn it around so you can have the other eye."

His face turned from white, to a beige, to light yellow, to light green. That really felt good.
