Filipino cuisine has developed from the different cultures that shaped its history; it is like other
Southeast Asian cuisines but with heavy Spanish influence. Some ingredients of the Mexican
cuisine, such as corn, tomato and chili, have also found their way to the Philippines.
Though its cuisine is not as renowned as many of its neighbours, such as that of Thailand and
Vietnam, Filipino cooking is nonetheless distinct in that it is possibly the least spicy of all
South East Asian cuisines.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Filipino food is bland, though. It is just that instead of
spices, Filipino food depends more on garlic, onions and ginger to add flavor to dishes.
