10 delicious Filipino dishes to try

Like many of its neighbours, this small country in Southeast Asia has a big appetite. Everyone loves to eat and being fiercely proud of their local dishes, the Filipinos love to invite everyone else to share a meal with them. That video for the country’s recent tourism campaign hits the nail on the head: the Filipino word for hello is “Have you eaten?” And even if you answer in the affirmative, you’ll get pulled to the dining table or given a plate to try something. And that something can range from a salty, sour, sublime bite of adobo to a sweet, cool scoop of halo-halo. By Mabel David-Pilar for Yahoo! Southeast Asia
