surely a meal without rice is just only a snack :) you can't feel satisfaction of what dish u eat having no rice at all... some filipinos may still have rice even having noodles or pasta & other side dish in the meal preparation. can u share any recipe of any filipino dish that goes well with rice.

hi angel marie! you're right eating without any rice on a lunch or dinner is so incomplete- feels like having a snack. many foreigners really love the Filipino version of chicken adobo. my mom usually boil the chicken until it's tender, then add soy sauce and a little bit of vinegar (don't stir it unless the aroma of the vinegar evaporates), then put some peper corn, garlic and lurel leaf. let the chicken absorb the flavorings and you're good to go. :)

I'm from Australia. Here it's really multicultural adn it shows in our food. As it was posted earlier we have a selection of many foods from all over the world and some of the freshest food. My family has been in Australia for about 8 generations but originally came from England. I think this is reflected in what we eat. We have mashed potato, veggies and meat for dinner three or four times a week. On other nights we might have pasta, rice, breads, various meats with or without sauces and gravies, barbequed meats....we cook using many different methods- bake, barbeque, steam, fry...the list goes on. From what i have seen in me travels and at friend's houses rice comes with jsut about every meal in Asia. Here it is different, there is no one food that comes with every single meal.

In our country India also rice is the main food... We have it during our lunch... But we do have other type of dishes like dosa, idli during breakfast and dinner.... Dosa , Idli are also made of rice flour :) This is mainly in South India.. But in north side they do take a lot of chappathis :)

It's diccicult to define what our main food is here in Australia because we are such a culturally diverse country. We have every type of food imaginable available in most supermarkets. 40 years ago my mother had to go to an Italian delicatessen to buy pasta by the kilo (pound then) and they wrapped it in newspaper. Nowadays we have hundreds of packets of pasta - tens of different brands, and so many different shapes and sizes. Supermarkets have different sections for Asian food (also sub-divided into Japanese, Chinese, Thai or Malaysian), Mexican, Italian and Mediterranean, Middle East - some even have an African section. We have rice grown in Australia, Italy, or Asia. Where 40 years ago Australian didn't put dressing on their salads, now there are oils and vinegars from around the world, and many prepared salad dressings. We have meat and fish of every kind, fruit and vegetables that can be found anywhere in the world - most asre grown in Australia. Many of the unusual Asian fruits are also available here now such as dragonfruit, guava, jackfruit, longan, etc We are truly blessed her in Australia with some of the best fresh food in the world. But staples could vary from house to house.

we eat many kind of food, but usually if you go to a restaruant you eat meat with potatoes. And soup every day. But rice is also common, but we eat it about once in a fortnight. We eat bread all the time, for breakfast, lunch dinner. So BREAD is the main meal.
