Cont2..Filipino Cuisine in a Nutshell

Filipino cuisine encourages the use of sawsawan (dipping sauce believed to make the food more appetizing & gets rid of any unwanted smells) : usually a combination of calamansi (Phil. lime), soy/fish sauce, vinegar,onions, garlic, chilies

Some unique condiments of Fil cuisine:

  • Bagoong - fermented shrimp/fish paste. Its strong pungent flavors complement milder tasting dishes: grilled squid/Kare Kare
  • Buro- rice fermented w/ shrimp/fish;a complement to fried fish,raw greens(mustard leaves)
  • Banana catsup- enhances the flavor of fried dishes
