Balut would be top of the list for him to try followed by Crispy Pata which is uniquely Filipino.

I think maybe chicken and/or pork adobo is the safest bet for most foreigners. But in my opinion you cant go wrong with seafoods, but I'm a seafood nut. I was skeptical on sisig but I had some in Cebu and LOVED it, so like Guenther suggested its a very personal thing you need to just know his taste and best guess. Looking forward to more Filipino food when I arrive. Now I will go snack on Chicharon.

I remember helping my fiance out cook a shrimp. he asked me ones how to cook a shrimp and I taught him how to cook a buttered shrimp with garlic and made a bit experimentation and we added mushroom in it...him and his friend loved the way it turned out. I just lately thought him how to cook calderatta ( according to my own version) but using pork tho and again he love it and so as his american and french friends. they were asking him how he cooked it :P

 

 

 

Sisig is too gressy for me.

 

 

Yep...just what I thought too.

Shakey's Pizza

 

I like longanisa for breakfast. And those sweet hotdogs are good breakfast food too with rice and a big tall Red Horse. mmmmmmmmmmmm

Well, Dhel, since your fiance has spoken, it really doesn't matter what the rest of us say. Dean, have you tried the tocino with scrambled eggs for breakfast? It's great. Just don't eat it too often, since it's loaded with brown sugar. Sounds like Dhel needs to stock up on longaniza and hot dogs and start collecting Shakey's coupons. :P

Pochero... I don't think any Filipino food comes close to being as good as pochero.
