Filipino food was heavily inspired by Spanish culture. The combination of sweet, salty, and sour ingredients means that there is something for every taste.
With its growing popularity, the number of Filipino food restaurants is also growing. Here are three great options for the next time you want to try some Filipino food.
Chef Barb Batiste has been cooking for a long time. She started cooking with her mom, aunt, and grandma when she was a little girl. Her love for cooking led to the establishment of her catering company, B Sweet. B Sweet later turned into dessert trucks and a dessert bar.
Now Chef Barb is bringing her food to the masses. Her goal is to bring the Filipino classics to everyone. Chicken adobo is a classic Filipino dish that everyone should try at least once. Big Boi also makes some great Pork Sisig if you are in the mood for something with a bit of spice.
