Restaurants - Filipino
Filipino restaurants serve Philippine cuisine, which refers to their food, preparation methods and eating customs. Filipino restaurants have evolved over many centuries, now to a mixed cuisine of Malay, Spanish, Chinese and American, Asian and Latin. Dishes range from the very simple, like a meal of fried salted fish and rice, to the elaborate paellas and cocidos. Filipino restaurants popular dishes include lechon, tapa, torta and adobo among others. Filipino restaurants are distinguished by their use of a bold combination of sweet, sour and salty flavors. Filipino restaurants use in their cuisine vinegar, a common ingredient. Filipino restaurants also serve food all at once and not in courses. Filipino restaurants usually do not employ the use of chopsticks, largely forks, knives and spoons.
