The Philippines now. This is disastrous. The strongest typhoon that hit landfall hit the Philippines right after the earthquake in Bohol.
Pray for the Philippines please.
Pinoy cuisine named ‘next great Asian food trend’
Popular American men’s magazine Details has declared Filipino cuisine the “next great Asian food trend.”
In its September 2013 issue, Details devoted two pages on Filipino cuisine in its Food section, which included a list of recommended Filipino restaurants in the United States, as well as a glossary of Pinoy food staples.
“It’s hard to believe that a cuisine eaten by nearly 100 million people could fly under the radar, but that’s exactly what Filipino food has done,” writer Joy Manning said in the article.
Manning credited the current fascination of Americans with Filipino food to two “critically acclaimed” restaurants in New York City – Jeepney Gastropub and Pig and Khao – as well as the “fanatical enthusiasm” of chefs such as Spanish Jose Andres, who described the cuisine as “exceptionally rich.”
The writer also noted that “trendsetting chefs are reinventing the cuisine while keeping it rooted in the country’s traditions.”
The feature on Filipino food also included shots of the ingredients used to cook sisig, as well as photos of halo-halo, sisig, adobo and crispy pata made by Pig and Khao.
A sidebar lists down definitions of Pinoy items such as lumpia, kinilaw, sinigang and even banana ketchup.
Finally, the article also recommended several restaurants where to eat Filipino food in the US. Apart from the two New York restaurants, the list also included Hapa SF in San Francisco, To The Jeepney Truck in
Washington DCHouston and Milkfish in New Orleans.
