Lechon takes the top spot.

In a January 10, 2014 article by Cary Jones on the Zagat website, nine Filipino dishes are listed as "must-trys." tHE Zagat guide covers restaurants all over the U.S., as well as in London and Toronto.


Jones noted:  "With Chinese, Malay, Spanish, and even Mexican influences, Filipino fare is wholly distinct from its Southeast Asian neighbors - generally not as spicy, with plenty of pork (more than half of all meat produced in the Philippines is pork), and strong acidic flavors including vinegar and calamansi lime."


Below is the list of the featured Pinoy delights:


1. Lechon

2. Adobo

3. Lumpia

4. Kare-kare

5. Sisig

6. Tocino

7. Sinigang
