I don't know that I have a whole article to write about it. I would say my favorite is probably beef bistek tagalog and maybe chicken adobo.
But I am not a massive fan of Filipino food. Thankfully, I have plenty of other options.
The Philippines food is always too sweet for me or the flavors don't agree with me.
Some of the 'favorites' where I am include one dish that is pigs blood and another called bulot which is a baby unhatched chicken still in the shell with beak and all. Like, literally there are carts for this all over including one down in front of my office.
To me the chicken adobo is even a bit annoying because it's generally boney chicken and I am spoiled with boneless.
I am really not bitter at all. I just am not a huge fan of the food here.....
I do like bbq chicken which can be found in many ihaw ihaw places and bbq places.
Unfortunately for me, the diet is heavily pork here as well and I am not a big pork fan.
As for desserts, I like the custard flan someone else referred to. Lechi flan is the name. I like mango floats. I like the fruits in Davao and Cebu. World class. Mangoes and pineapples. I have tried durian. I liked it the first time, but the wicked garlic burp that ensued kept me out of a second try.
