Great tomauer 2007-11-15 21:57

Hi Harko, Great shot. The details and colours are great!

Whilst i don't want to spark an arguement with Molla, I do want to to say my opinion. I of course know my fair share on Filipino Cuisine, I also have some friends who are Chef's specialising in the cuisine. I think you really have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time.. I have also travelled s.e asia a lot, And im not saying the Food in the Philippines is the best, IM saying, It's not below standards of other countries in the area. But i do agree, We eat some wild things! hehehe.

It's not a surprise that you where turned off the Hamburgers, I keep mental note to avoid such stalls and restaurants.. You really cannot classify a Foriegn Food, A Hamburger, As Filipino Food Either.

I don't know your situation regarding the Fruit. Sometimes it can be a bit stressfull getting the right ingredients and all that, But once again, Its all down to Luck.

I have had the problem, and i have had perfect trips with not a single problem. We too run a small restuarant on Marinduque, And Ingredients can be a Problem.

But I respect your opinion, I hope next time if you return, You can find some Better Food for your taste :)

Default To tomauer: Food market

Hi Tom!
Thanks for your visit.
We did not eat here, we only stopped to look around at this market. We were on a day trip together with Filipino relatives and friends so they could tell us what to eat and what not. We had food with us but bought some sweet corn earlier on the day.

I had no problem with the food in the Philippines at all. We ate at several different places, hotels, dinner restaurants but also the small lunch restaurants. Especially in the smaller lunch restaurants you have to be careful that it is fresh and not laying around for a while already. Easy trick for that is: go where the masses go. High turn over usually means fresh and good food. Travelling with Filipinos works as well since it is easier for them to judge if it is ok or not.

Hi Harko! thanks for your reply.

You definately have been doing the right thing than. Their are bad places and their are the good ones.. Street Food, in general, Can be Gambling.. As long as you know the area or are with people who know the area, you should be fine! and thats what you did, So, Thats even better!

Hehe. Thanks again.
