christa,

I just asked a buddy of mine who has spent quite a bit of time wandering around the Philippines, and these are his top three favorites:

Pork Sinagang - sour and tart
Chicken Abodo - a hearty staple
Fish Bangos with rice and Mang Tomas sauce - delicious

Of course there is always Balut, but I think that's more of a practical joke that has gone horribly horribly wrong.

Why do you ask? Cheers.,

I second Chicken Adobo (but maybe add a little pork into the mix!)

You should also try lumpia shanghai if you can - they're absolutely delicious!

"I just asked a buddy of mine who has spent quite a bit of time wandering around the Philippines, and these are his top three favorites:

I second this. My personal favorite is ampalaya (bitter lemon), talong (eggplant mixed with egg ommelette) and rice as a combination though

I'm a huge fan of Kinilaw, a Philippine style ceviche. And obviously also lechon manok.

Balut is great once you get past the look of it.
