One of the most well known filipino fast food place!
They specialize in filipino foods especially the filipino style burgers, spaghetti and chicken. My favourite is the filipino style spaghetti! It is not like the regular italian pasta. This spaghetti is sweet instead of sour. If you do go to this fast food place, I recommend their spaghetti.

Best dessert especially for the summer! This is really easy to make as well.
It is possible to get the ingredients in a grocery store or an oriental/ asian market. All you need are :
Halo- Halo mix ( which you can get in an asian/ filipino market)
Ice cream (your choice of flavour)
Put the halo halo mis in a cup and grind the ice. Put the grinded ice on top of the halo halo mix and put the evaporated milk. Top it with any ice cream flavour you want.
I loved buying this food in the streets on Philippines. I watch the vendors make it and I was pretty much amused. It was interesting to see them grind ice with something else instead of an ice grinder or crusher. It looked like a flat iron to me.

Siopao ( pork bun)
My favourite snack! This is just a plain white bun filled with meat and sweet sauce and it cooked by steaming. It is best eaten while it is really hot.
This can be also be bought frozen in a pack and it is ready to eat after microwaving it.
One of the most well- known filipino food. This can be made with seafood, pork meat,tripes or chicken. This is then topped with stir fried vegetables. This is best served with shrimp paste (bagoong), which usually has a foul smell but it goes well with the Kare- Kare .
Hey everyone I made a survey for you to respond, so it will help me more with my blog. I need more ideas on Filipino foods to blog about.

Torta (eggplant and scrambled eggs)
I made this for dinner last night and surprisingly it was good.It was really easy to make too. All I had to do was scramble two eggs, take a peeled eggplant ( flattened) and dip it on the scrambled egg , pour it on the frying pan. This tastes best with banana ketchup! Worth the try!
Banana ketchup is just like your regular tomato ketchup but it is sweeter. This can be bought in most grocery stores, in the oriental foods aisle.

Taho is a food in the Philippines that contains soft tofu, tapioca pearls and melted brown sugar as syrup. It is served warm and usually sold during early mornings.
This is best to eat when you are really tired in the morning. The sweet taste and sweet aroma will definitely give you energy throughout the day. Most of you may think that the soft tofu is quite unusual but it goes really well and adds great flavour. I advise you to eat it right away before it gets cold because taho loses its great taste when it turns cold. The way this certain food is sold is very interesting to me. The vendor walks and carries two buckets that are hung on a thick wooden stick, while he or she yells TAHO! loudly. If people are interested to buy, they would run out of their houses and approach the vendor. If you have not been to Philippines and you plan to visit, I definitely recommend this Philippine food for you to try. Not only will you enjoy the great taste of Taho but you will also enjoy the experience.
