The one thing I miss the most about the Philippines — THE FOOD. There are some things that are available here but there are those that I can only dream of eating
INIPIT. This shizz is the bomb. My favorite has got to be the one from Eurobake, a pasalubong center in Bulacan. It is basically a pastry made up of cake and a scrumptious custard filling in the middle. I tried to stuff myself the last time I was on vacation but I miss it so much!
JOLLIBEE’S PEACH MANGO PIE. The crispy crust and the gooey peach mango filling = heaven. I wanted to sneak one in the plane when I left Manila! There’s Jollibee in the US and Toronto so it is not as inaccessible as inipit but it’s still 6-9 hours away. YUM!
MAX’ FRIED CHICKEN. There is a Max’ restaurant in Toronto but I have yet to go. Many people have tried to imitate the crispy awesome fried chicken but so far, none compares.
PASTILLAS. There are a lot of pastillas available in the Philippines but nothing compares to the one from Bulacan. First inipit and now this! Bulacan is pastry heaven!
