Filipino cuisine is a blend of colonial and cultural influences. With its roots in Indigenous culture, Filipino cuisine draws influences from a wide range of culinary traditions including Spanish, American, Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian, and Indian traditions. As such, the Filipino flavor profile is sweet, sour, and salty—a combination that’s complex yet inviting.
Signature dishes include lumpia (a variation on spring rolls), dinuguan (stew made with pig’s blood), pancit (simple noodles with toppings such as shrimp and eggs), and the always delightful halo-halo (a cheery dessert comprised of evaporated milk, crushed ice, sweet beans, ice cream, fruit, and other colorful toppings).
