7.  Raina from the KonyoQueen.com grew up with a chef  sister, so often she get the ingredients right, but she’s also exhilarated to not know what she’s eating to keep her engaged.

“The state of perplexity encourages you to take another bite–another gander. Before you know it, the food is gone and you’re none the wiser. Thus, I’ve come to always say, “Good food leaves you guessing!”

8.  FoodFanaticph who loves to eat to experience different cuisines and flavors shares his Favorite kare-kare from Marison’s 

“I grew up eating Kare-kare and my granda ma makes the best one ever with only the freshest ingredients and everything from scratch even the peanut sauce. Marison’s version was a genius take on the classic recipe – using peanut sauce that was made from scratch by mixing cashew and peanuts then grinding this mixture into a very thick sauce. They also re-invented the use of oxtripe – they cut them into strips, battered and deep fried. It’s the best modern version of Kare-Kare!”

Looks like too many of our local foodies shares the same Pinoy food favorites like Sinigang and Sisig. Check out their blog or Instagram for more drool worthy Food shots and restaurant recommendations, you’ll surely go hungry and cook or run to your nearest restaurants! Happy Eating! 😀
