Filipino Lunch Food: The Art Of Good Eating

Each time I’d watch foreign cooking shows and Don Domeng will be around, he’d always point out how a party table for them hardly compares to a party table for Filipinos. He says it’s because Filipinos have a tendency to show off when it comes to hosting events, but I think it’s mostly because there’s always a feast aspect to how Filipinos eat.

Party or non-party, Filipinos have mastered the art of good eating. This is evident even in the poor man’s home, where even rice and salt can be made into a meal when worse comes to worst. Good eating is part of Filipino food in every right and this makes eating, whether breakfast, lunch, dinner, or the many snacks we take, more than an act to fuel the body but a real treatly experience on so many levels.

Case in point: Today my sister came home after a stint in the hospital and she decided to cook spicy grilled prawns and add it to the lunch table. Mother Goose won an electric grill in a raffle a long time ago but this is the first time we ended up using it.

The spicy grilled prawns are a hit! They’re made withΒ WorcestershireΒ sauce, garlic, and cayenne pepper, and grilled for a few minutes until the slightly melancholic looking shrimps turn pink and decidedly cheerful fit for a fiesta. Oh, I forgot to mention, we already had nilagang baboy and chicken adobo on the lunch table πŸ™‚

Normally, I’m not keen on lunch but this time, I totally enjoyed it and savored every bite! πŸ˜€

  1. wah nakakatakam naman! Gustong-gusto ko yang nilaga at sinigang. dyan talaga nasisira ang anumang diet na mayroon ako.

    sad lang at hindi ako makakain ng seafood. -allergy.

  2. i have a recipe for shrimps and prawns. haha! killer daw oh! haha! hindi naman ,favorite ko kasi yung recipe na yun: butter, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, sprite. yummy!

  3. Everytime nakakakita ako ng taba ng babuy na hindi fried, I feel like throwing up. I don’t know, it just seems disgusting to me. Lalo na pag madulas sya when you put it inside your mouth. Aaaack. Or maybe I’m just against cannibalism. πŸ˜†
