Here are the most delectable Filipino #foodstagrams in honor of Filipino American History Month

If you grew up in a Filipino household, you know that food is a very important part of our culture. Platters of lumpia (eggroll), puto (rice cakes), and for the more adventurous, dinuguan (blood stew), are some of the signature dishes served at Filipino parties.

While other Asian cuisine like Thai and Japanese can be found at restaurants everywhere, Filipino food is still gaining traction. Food critic Andrew Zimmern has been calling Filipino food “the next big thing” for the past five years, explaining that Filipinos combine Asian ingredients with Spanish technique. “The Spanish were a colonial power there for 500 years, and they left behind adobo and cooking in vinegar — techniques that, applied to those tropical Asian ingredients, are miraculous,” he told Today.com in 2012.

It seems like his theory is finally catching on. Filipino dishes, like adobo rice bowls, pandesal (bread roll) breakfast sandwiches, and ube (purple yam) donuts have been popping up more often on our Instagram feeds. While nothing compares to your mom’s chicken adobo and your auntie’s leche flan, the fact that Filipino food is becoming more mainstream and presented in unique ways is refreshing…and delicious.
