Around the Philippines in 10 Manila Restaurants

Eat your way around the archipelago with these regional eats.

( Filipino food is undoubtedly one of the most diverse in the world. Heavily influenced by Spanish,  American, and Chinese cultures, plus the cuisines of its Asian neighbors, Pinoy kitchens have become melting pots for delicacies that range from the quick and simple to the more elaborate, hour-long-cooked heirloom dishes, each one with a story to tell.


And yet what makes Pinoy fare even more diverse is how each region boasts specialities specific to a particular province: Cebu's flavor-packed lechon, Bicol's beloved laing, and Ilocos' delicious-and-deadly bagnet, to name a few. Fortunately, there's no need book a plane ticket to feast on these popular specialties-and while those who hail from these provinces  may fight us to the death for saying so, we believe these iconic Pinoy staples that have found a home in Manila will do them proud.
