The Philippines is not known for exotic foods like its neighbors like Malaysia and Thailand. In fact it can be a little disappointing for many foreigners when they expect the the “Asian” food style. The Philippines can be a little bewildering when trying to sort out foods that match the tastes of most western visitors.
From Pigs feet to Chicken feet to Adobo and onto to some street foods that will force some visitors off the street and into McDonalds. But dig deeper and you will find treasures of food. I have found a few books that should help most with their search and also help their Filipina wives cook a meal to suit both tastes.
Have a look at some of these recipes in the following books. These books contains recipes of pinoy foods in different types of cooking styles and twist of cooking procedures.
