Hey, in case you might be interested to know, I got a blog stint outside this online space. Bryan Choo from The Smart Local contacted me a few weeks ago about this blog and all that. Now, to cut the long story short, I have a guest post in their awesome site, which is a Travel & Lifestyle portal with over 1,000,000 unique Singaporean visitors yearly. They’re currently the biggest online Travel & Lifestyle website in Singapore.

The original entry I submitted is seen below, but you may also check out the uploaded version here through this link. The editor-in-chief wanted the post to focus on bringing Pinoy pride to Singapore, so why not devour on the idea of: FOOD. There are some slight changes to the post to make it fit the Singapore slang even more. You may want to browse through their site too! Feed me with your ideas after, okay?

Pork Sisig

Anyone adventurous should try this mildly exotic yet significantly tasteful dish. The sisig dates back from the mid-70s and is derived from a meticulous preparation of a pig's face, marinated, chopped, cooked, and served on a hot plate. It’s served with hints of fresh onions and savory pork belly, topped with a princely serving of chicharon. Nowadays, this is not only best eaten during meals, but even accompanied with towers of local beers and after office hangovers. Where to find it: Gerry’s Grill Singapore, StarHub Centre, 51 Cuppage Road

Chicken Joy

Give it anytime any day, a true blooded Filipino will vouch for the juiciness of the best fast food fried chicken known to the Philippines. It’s known to be the perfectly seasoned fried chicken that has a crispy level on the outside and a tender cook on the inside. The meat itself delivers enough flavors to make a name for itself, but the gravy that comes with it makes it an even more blissful meal to have. Where to find it: Jollibee Singapore, 6th Floor Lucky Plaza, Orchard Road

Tap-si-log

Because this has been a massively successful breakfast dish, the Tap-si-log has been carried out as a universal Filipino dish that can be eaten any time of the day. A tap-si-log, which consists of hefty thin slices of dried marinated beef, served with fresh fried eggs and garlic rice, is often consumed with some cold fruit shakes or local hot coffees, coupled with a whole lot of food indulgence. Where to find it: Tapa King, Singapore, Lau PA Sat, Singapore

Laing

As shy as this food may seem, Laing is one of the best Filipino vegetable dishes known to mankind. Its main highlights are taro leaves cooked in lavish amounts of coconut milk, salted with fish sauce, cloves of garlic, and chopped pork belly. Heavily spiced with different kinds of red hot chilies, the Laing dish is a sure show stopper, especially to people who are fond of unique spicy delicacies. Where to find it: 7,107 Flavours Filipino Restaurant, 114 Neil Road Singapore

Halo-halo

Finely shaved ice, evaporated milk, boiled sweet beans, plus fruits equal one amazing halo-halo dessert. “Halo” is a Filipino word for “mix” – this well-liked Filipino dessert requires some mixing to do in order to get that oddly beautiful sweet taste.  It’s quite similar to the Ais Kacang from Singapore, Kakigori from Japan, and Grattachecca from Italy. What sets this truly apart though are the superlative toppings added in, such as leche flan, purple yam, and ice cream. It’ll leave anyone surely craving for more. Where to find it: Hawker Center, Lucky Plaza, Orchard Road
