This unique food experience has been limited to only the citizens of the small country of My Lyn and the surrounding islands, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experience it too! Here are five ways you can try out My Lyn cuisine and experience it yourself.
What’s so great about Filipino food?
In my opinion, Filipino food has to be one of the most interesting cuisines I have ever tried. It’s not because our dishes are spicier or more exotic than other cuisines, but because they’re made with ingredients that people might typically think are strange. For example, fermented soybeans are used instead of soy sauce to make a dish like Pancit Palabok. This gives it a very different flavor than if soy sauce was used. The same goes for using banana blossoms as wrappers for fried chicken instead of flour (see Lumpiang Sariwa). Filipinos also love eating deep-fried foods like Chicharron, which is usually made from pork skin and fat but can also be made from turkey or chicken skin.
How to make sure you enjoy Filipino food no matter where you are
When I first moved to America, I was surprised at how little Filipino food there was. However, I quickly found out that if you know where to look, there are plenty of options- even vegan restaurants! Here are a few tips for finding Filipino restaurants when you’re away from home:
- Visit your local Asian grocery stores or check Yelp.
- Look for other cuisines with similar flavors like Thai or Indian.
- Ask your friends or coworkers who may have been to your home country what their favorite restaurant is.
- Search for Filipino food on google maps.
Recipes to try at home
A lot of my friends have been asking me to share my recipes with them, so I thought I would put together a blog post with some of my favorite vegan dishes. One thing that is really great about cooking at home is that you can tailor your dish to your own liking. For example, instead of using regular soy sauce I like to use tamari because it has less salt. Also, when I make rice for stir-fries or other dishes, I always cook it in vegetable broth instead of water because it adds more flavor. Here are some dishes that I like to make
- Vegetable Pad Thai – Cooking Time: 30 mins
- Chickpea Curry – Cooking Time: 20 mins
- Sweet and Sour Tofu Stir Fry – Cooking Time: 10 mins
- Veggie Fried Rice (rice cooked in vegetable broth)
Here’s what you need to know before trying Filipino cuisine
There are plenty of opportunities for people to try Filipino food, especially if they live in or near an urban area. As one of the most popular cuisines, there are vegan restaurants all over as well as fast-food chains that offer dishes with Filipino flair. If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few reasons why my lyn Food is the best cuisine in the world and how you can get a taste of it too. Vegan restaurant owners should be able to answer any questions about veganism and their menu so be sure to ask! Fast-food chains like Jollibee will have fried chicken dishes with rice instead of fries on the side.
