with the Family

Having lived in the Philippines for nearly 3.5 years, having immersed myself in the local cuisine during that time – not really, but I kinda have to deal with it in the cafeteria for lunch every day at work, and I’ve made a few good faith efforts to learn, even if ultimately unsuccessful (see for example 6.359 Kangkong Lechon) – I can share with GMTD readers the secret to eating Filipino food: eat it with kimchi.

Kimchi by me.

Seriously though, with kimchi, certain Filipino dishes actually taste Korean, such as grilled liempo, which is pork belly marinated in soy sauce, not entirely unlike galbi.
