A dish that my country, Philippines, is proud of is the Adobo. It's a chicken or pork (or a combination of both) cooked with soy sauce, vinegar and lots of garlic. As for my hometown, Antipolo, it is famous for cashew nuts.

I love Adobo it is very tasty. I live in the United States, and each one of the 50 States has something that is special to their State or a big city in their state. I live in Illinois which has the big city of Chicago. Chicago is famous for their Deep Dish Pizza, The Chicago Hot Dog, and Illinois is known for their Italian beef sandwiches.

You made me crave for Deep Dish Pizza! I get to taste them because Sbarro offer Deep Dish here in the Philippines and there is a hotdog kiosk here named Chicago Flame Dog. But I guess it tastes much better if I get to try them in Illinois.

i love spicy food but not the very spicy once. I have tasted an Indian food when I traveled to Singapore and I liked it. I believe it's called prata with onion and mushroom then I have to dip it to curry sauce. I love the curry sauce.

Hello for my country is typical food like beans and porridge as for preparation we make spceial brown thickening which make the dishes more thick and stodgy.Also in my country the salad is very important for people.There are people who eat salad instead of main food at their table.For myseld I prefer to eat porridge in all variant soup or stew.

it seems people in your country have healthy eating lifestyle considering salad is a regular entree in your meal. i also love salad but only get to eat once in a while.

Yeh I love Adobo but Sinigang is also awesome and one of my favorite Filipino dishes. I like it for it's sour flavor. I also love Arroz Caldo because I don't like rice so much and it's more of a soup so it's all good to me. For dessert I like Leche Flan or Halo Halo.
