Here’s The Filipino Dish to Pair With The Best Rum From The Philippines
The greatest way to celebrate Filipino History Month is to explore the culture and cuisine. Often called the original fusion cuisine, Filipino food is an intricate array of Spanish, Western, Chinese, Japanese, and Pacific Islander flavors that serve as living proof of the country’s rich cultural history. The best Filipino cuisine encompasses a wide range of dishes, flavors, and cooking styles.
While other Asian cuisines have been part of the American landscape for decades, it is only in recent years that Filipino dishes started gaining mainstream recognition outside the urban areas in New York and California. NYC American-Filipino joint, Flip Sigi, introduces Filipino flavors with Mexican staples like tacos and burritos. Situated on the corner of 7th Avenue and West 10th Street in NYC’s, a hotspot neighborhood for the bars and restaurants, Flip Sigi also has a Chicago location, with future spots opening in Jersey City and West Chelsea.

Or the Cali Burrito, filled with Adobo Chicken, pork belly, fries, tomatoes, cheese and avocado cream. For the best dining experience, try the limited signature dish, Ginataang Kalabasa Bowl made with Don Papa Rum marinated shrimp, coconut milk, butternut squash.
