Growing Filipino Food Movement?

Thanks to growing numbers of Filipino restaurants, broader availability of Filipino food in grocery stores, a larger Filipino population, and endorsements by celebrity chefs, Filipino food is growing in popularity.

Every year, more and more people are discovering the unique and delicious flavors of Filipino cuisine — flavors that can rival the popularity of such foods-du-jour as Korean and Peruvian cuisine. In fact, Andrew Zimmern, host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods, has called Filipino food the “next big thing.”

Zimmern noted that many people love Chinese, Japanese, and Thai food, but that these cuisines are ubiquitous — it seems as though every neighborhood has a local Chinese, Japanese, or Thai joint. Filipino food combines the best of all of these cuisines “with Spanish technique.” The Philippines was colonized by Spain for 500 years, and the Spaniards left their mark on cooking techniques, which according to Zimmern are “miraculous.”

While the word “miraculous” can be applied to some Filipino cooking techniques, the word “bizarre” has been used by foreigners to describe some of the things that Filipinos eat.

Pagkaing Pilipino

Filipino Food... That's Pagkaing Pilipino in Tagalog, the basis of the Philippine national language, which is formally known as Filipino. Yes, it's true. According to the 1987 Constitution of the Philippines, the two official languages of the country are English and Filipino. The name of the national language of the Philippines is Filipino and not Tagalog. The government's language commission would probably also prefer that we say Pagkaing Filipino, instead of Pagkaing Pilipino... Even the actress Vilma Santos who was become an elected official has decided that this is the way to go with our language -- more usage of the F.
