i recorded that episode to show my grandma how the food of her country would be portrayed through the eyes of a "professional".. i ended up deleting it because i felt she would be a little disturbed by what they showed as cuisine (stir fried silk worms???) and all of her favorite foods they left out. plus he was a complete dickhead.
its bizzare foods so I expect him not to eat what i like.
Watch the Anthony Bourdain episode in the Philippines
he ate sisig (one of my favorite foods) and liked it ,
^^^^is that suprising? isn't it just chopped up steak in a vinegarette type sauce?
and this thread is jokes hahahah Balut
I'm only 1/2 flip...but I could never eat this...I drank the juice one time.
no its made from different parts of pork (sometimes fish or chicken).
they never use beef because its supposed to be made of really small pieces
my dad made some today and put it on one of those sizzling plates http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sisig
its definitely no surprise tho, just saying that he ate usual things in his show
that im more familiar with and eat regularly
I don't really see what's the fuss with all the delicacies. It ain't weird, and it tastes better than a lot of other foods. Durian is freaking awesome, especially the ultimately yellow ones. Gosh that stuff is SO creamy. Better than ice cream, even. And balut? Well, I don't eat the chick (I probably could but I just don't like feathers or hair), will try it sometime, but then the soup and yolk is awesome! Just top it off with some salt and you're good to go. And there's "kuhol". I don't know why some people can't eat it. It's just snail. I mean, if you consider escargot fine dining then why not this? It's the same thing.
im tryna bring alil bit of filipino culture and cuisine to this site. the guy in this video is really over blowing how disgusting fermented duck egg really is. its obviously a taste you have to build up, but its not so bad.
tell me what you think, and post other international delicacies which would be strange to your average american.
