Foods of the World

Part of the travel adventure for me is ALWAYS what I can eat that is particular to the area I am visiting. Eating is very much part of any country's culture. Can you help me compile a list here?

thanks , MJ. if i may just add a thing or two on your posted fish dinner photo..........

this fish is called St. Peter's Fish in Israel. I so looked forward to it when I ordered one, only to find the same "tilapia" fish which is a very ordinary fish dinner back here in the Philippines. Don't get me wrong, it is a good fish dinner. But it cost me 10x more to have it in Israel 😞


Here's a photo of the Tilapia or St. Peter's Fish, but this time cooked in coconut cream.

From Mexico - mainly Puebla and as Mexican cuisine (at least in the U.S) is become highly regionalized, I suppose this is classified today's venacular as mostly Pueblano. I have many thoughts as to why this might be, I won't bore you with them 😊

hi liliram, i'm mixed filipino and puerto rican raised in america. i love lechon and chiken adobo, as well as pancit, lumpia, and shopao. the pics you posted are making me so hungry.

unfortunately i've only been to the philippines once in my life, but would like to go back.

what other foods are typical of the philippines? i've had bagoong, as you mentiones and halo halo and pandisal.

i just really love eating and talking about food. Reply to this

I just got back from a trip to Bicol, home of the chilis and coconut cream-based cuisine. Check out my earlier blog on Bicol food. Bicol Express and Other Bicol Food Treats I love Bicol. Its natural wonders, the people , their cuisine. But it is a long 10 hour drive from where I live. I flew the last time, but drove recently as I traveled with my family all around the region for a week. Reply to this
