Mangosten is good and as heard anti-carcer. I have a first hand experience with it tho not for cancer..but I had made it part of my everyday diet for one whole month since I was scheduled by my doctor to have a cyst removed, I told myself to give natural remedy a try before giving in to surgery...luckily, the cyst shrunk. My fiance told me he want to taste it when he will be back here with me again. As to adobo, I taught him how to cook it..can't make one for him while we are thousand miles apart. and I was glad he love it.

Hard to say because it is soo individual from person to person..

 

Try to ask your loved one what dish he likes as western food and then google the ingredients and see what comes closest to it in the Pinoy variety.

Both chicken and pork adobo, pancit canton, lumpia shanghai, crab/shrimp in coconut cream sauce, leche flan, maruya (banana fritters), turon saba (wrapped plantation banana's with brown sugar) and a few more.

 

Filipino food is what it is, some tasty and some not so tasty. It's not my favorite ethnic food but there are some good dishes.

Adobo, preferably with the fat trimmed, (not too fatty). Funnily enough, i can make it better than most Filipinos, but i use more expensive ingredients.

Paella, if he likes shell fish.

Shanghai fried rice, Pancit Canton etc, if he likes Chinese type food.

Mixed Grill, (Fried or grilled pork chop,sausage, onions, bacon,eggs, mushrooms and tomato). You could use steak instead of Pork chop, but its expensive, and many men are very fussy about their Steak, especially if they are American or Australian, so i wouldn't risk it.
