Philippine Cuisine

Philippine cuisine has evolved over several centuries, influenced by Chinese, Malay, Spanish, Mexican, American, and Indian cooking.

Filipinos usually eat three main meals a day: breakfast (almusal), lunch (tanghalian), and dinner (hapunan), plus a light snack (merienda) in the afternoon and occasionally a similar snack in the morning as well.

Dishes range from a simple meal of fish and rice to rich paellas and cocidos. Popular dishes include lechon (whole roasted pig), Longanisa (native sausage); Torta (omelette), Pan de sal (bread rolls), Adobo (chicken and/or pork braised in garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar), Kalderetang Kambing (rich goat stew), Kare-kare (ox tail, beef chunks and/or tripe cooked in peanut sauce), Sinigang (tom yam-like dish), Pancit (stir-fried noodles), Lumpia (fresh or fried spring rolls) and Halo-halo (a cold mixed fruit dessert).
