50 authentic Filipino recipes

Anthony Bourdain famously said the best pork he ever ate was in the Philippines. If you’ve ever had Cubu lechon, you’d likely see why. Filipino food is famous for its flavor and variety due to the archipelagic country’s access to seafood, tropical fruits, and spices—not to mention, with so many islands, an inherently diverse array of cooking styles. 

Stacker compiled a list of Filipino recipes from Allrecipes. From the world-famous adobo to a Filipino spin on fried rice, keep reading for recipes ranging as wildly in flavor as they do in difficulty
