"What it is: FilipinoĖstyle spring rolls. 

"Why itís awesome: The filling varies, but one thing remains the same: You can (and will) inhale them by the dozen."


"What it is: Hot and sour soup. 

"Why itís awesome: Tamarind paste and calamansi (or Philippine lime) juice infuse the broth with its signature sour flavor. This version calls for salty chunks of pork and a splash of creamy coconut milk to round out things out."

Chicken Afritada

"What it is: Chicken stew. 

"Why itís awesome: Spanish influences can be found throughout Filipino cuisine, and this tomato-based stew with chicken, peppers, and onions is one of the heartiest examples."

Cassava Cake

"What it is: A creamy, not-too-sweet dessert made from cassava root and coconut milk. 

"Why itís awesome: Itís sweet, but not cloyingly so. For texture, the top is broiled until itís almost crunchy. It can also be made gluten-free."

Pancit Palabok

"What it is: Noodles! 

"Why itís awesome: Itís a super versatile, catch-all dish that centers around a simple, savory combination of meat, veggies, and noodles."
