20 May2010

Several years ago, I did a poll and came up with the Top 10 Pinoy dishes of readers. I agreed with MANY of those choices and they indeed are national favorites. At that point in time, I also included the other dishes in the Top 30, and they are listed below. So now here is my question and I hope you will help… What OTHER 10 dishes would you include in your Pinoy food favorites list? The other 10 dishes should exclude all of the Top 30 dishes already mentioned below. KINDLY REVIEW LIST BELOW TO AVOID DUPLICATION. If you can’t think of 10 more dishes, just leave a comment anyway with a lesser number of dishes. Essentially, I am trying to compile marketmanila’s “Top 40” Pinoy dish list. Please Leave me a comment with your additional 10 Pinoy dishes, and I hope a LOT of READERS participate so we have a nice sample to work with. Also, I am doing this just now as our internet connection seems to be on the blink, and we have had very limited access for the past two days. Not sure if it is the service provider, telecoms, company, or a global problem. Thank you very much for participating in this survey… This will keep you all amused in case I go into the internet black hole for a day or two or three…

The countdown from 30 to 11…

30. Ginataang Kalabasa – just made it into the Top 30, yum, I love this dish.
29. Tapa – yikes, it’s a bit far down on the list for me…what would breakfast be like without this and some spicy vinegar?
28. Paksiw na Lechon – Oh no, I like this dish better than lechon itself. I would have thought this would be much higher up the rankings!
27. Manggang Hilaw with Bagoong – Love it.
26. Lechon Kawali – Definitely.
25. Pancit Palabok – if lumped together with Pancit luglug would have been in the Top 10.
24. Kinilaw – probably one of our oldest and most representative local dishes.
23. Pritong Galunggong – I posted this one just recently…
22. Longganisa – Definitely, with gaseous burps and all.
21. Bihon Guisado – Merienda food, lots of kalamansi please!
20. Beef Caldereta – Gotta make me some of this, have never cooked it myself before.
19. Chicken Inasal – Yes, I see why this is up there in the rankings.
18. Beef Bulalo/Nilagang Baka – I know these are different dishes but as a grouped theme of boiled beef soups, this was up there in votes…
17. Rellenong Bangus – Hmm, I’m not a big fan, but many others obviously are.
16. Tortang Talong – Definitely gotta have this. And with lots of ketchup please.
15. Bistek Tagalog – A personal favorite…I thought this would be higher up in the rankings.
14. Laing – Yes.
13. Pancit Luglug – Ditto, yes.
12. Sisig – I can see why, but I am not a converted fan yet.
11. Dinuguan – Ugh. I have a childhood phobia and I just have to get over it and cook this dish to perfection myself in the coming months!

And finally, The Putahe Top 10!!!

10. Tinola – another satisfying comfort food that is a complete meal in a bowl with protein, vegetables, fruit, soup and flavor – lots of rice, patis and kalamansi on the side, please.
9. Monggo – Definitely a top 10 though possibly one of those highly adapted/adopted dishes from the Chinese Mainland…Nutritious, delicious and economical.
8. Lumpiang Sariwa – Yes. Ever since those Americans pushed all those coconut plantations we had to figure out how to use palm hearts…and this is a brilliant manifestation. Some family friends send over this stuff at Christmas after a long, slow simmer in pork lard and it is stunningly delicious and stunningly deadly on the cholesterol meter. I like the accompanying sauce, but oddly, keep my chopped peanuts on the side.
7. Inihaw na Isda – Yes. This was a difficult one to lump into one as voters sometimes specified the fish, but suffice it to say that grilled fresh fish is on most folks Top 10 list.
6. Daing or Pritong Bangus – Yes. And Marketman says you MUST have a fish pan to go with that, Mylai Dimaculangan’s aside…heehee.
5. Pinakbet – Yes. Yes. Yes. An Asian ratatouille? No. A native vegetable dish that can range from horrific to sublime depending on how it is cooked. Acquired taste because of the bagoong, I think. This is definitely in my personal top 10.
4. Lechon – No wonder this is the stuff of Fiesta dreams, folks really do place it in a super high regard. I personally would have it lower on the list. Though I LOVE good lechon skin and ribs, I just don’t think it should be that high up in the rankings…
3. Kare-kare – A surprise for me, but nearly 50% of all voters had this on their list and it garnered the third largest number of votes. I was never a big fan and perhaps I always got bum examples of this dish so after seeing these results I read up on kare-kare and spent nearly four hours trying to make the ultimate version (in a post up next!).
2. Adobo – Duhh. Nearly 60% of all respondents had this on their list of Top 10 Pinoy Putahes. No wonder they say it should be the national dish. And yes, I believe it existed before the Spaniards got here and they named it so due to similarities with dishes in Mexico/Spain.
1. Sinigang – Sinigang na Baboy was the third largest individually voted dish. However, 4 Sinigang versions were in the top 13 dishes so if you grouped them as a “Sinigang” option, this was far and away the absolute favorite. Approximately 80% of all respondents had one or more types of Sinigang in their Top 10 list. I totally agree with this choice. Whether pork, beef, prawn, shrimp, bangus, talakitok or other protein with the sour broth of tamarind (or guava, kamias, etc.) and fresh vegetables, this is truly the number 1 Pinoy dish in my book.

    This post made me drool! :P I was surprised to see more people prefer “pancit luglug” vs. pancit palabok. what’s the difference, aside from the thickness of the noodles?

  7. chreylle says:

    another dish for me that should be include into ur top 40 MM was : ginataang suso (shellfish) and ensaladang mangga and the all time favorite merienda: ginatan or alpahol (yata in other terms) ..
    anyway MM, have u been tasted the pancit malabon (pansit luglog) in Malabon/ Navotas? i suggest u have to,. my husband officem8s in libis (last year) and now in makati craving for it since he brought it to his office. the taste was really really far from the resto in the malls and other places.
    and to nadia, pancit luglog is very diff. from pancit palabok; in pancit palabok, its too saucy (sometimes watery) unlike pancit luglog, the sauce have been mixed well to the noodles, makes it a little dry and that become more flavorful :D

  13. Marketman says:

    Hi everyone, thanks for your comments. However, please try not to repeat items that are already listed in the top 30, they will make tallying results even more labor intensive… for example, sinigang is already there. So putting a variation is like a repeated vote. There is monggo, there is nilagang baka, adobo, etc. in the Top 30 that a lot of folks are just repeating in their comments… THANKS! :)

  52. gil says:

    urk! going hungry again … :)

    my top 10 dishes would be (aside from the top 30) …

    1. crispy pata … I do agree, why didn’t this make it to the list?

    2. guinataang talangka (I remember this from my childhood as being somewhat of a guinataang kalabasa type of dish with stringbeans and other things but with the addition of the talangka na linalako sa kalye)

    3. binagoongang baboy (lots of gata and bagoong alamang)

    4. bicol express (which is a different dish from laing)

    5. champorado (with or without tuyo, daing or other side dishes)

    6. ukoy (or is it okoy?)

    7. tokwa’t baboy (with lots of onion rings and either as a side dish for pospas or a standalone viand)

    8. pochero (am not sure if this falls under the bulalo/beef soup category. This was a family Sunday lunch thing with bulalo bones, chunks of beef, pechay, kamote and served with a side dish of salsa verde: talong with kamote, mixed with lots of chopped onions, pepper and vinegar)

    9. guinataang sigarillas

    and last but not least …

    10. Purefoods hotdogs – fried until the skin is somewhat brownish or hard (makunat), serve with catsup or vinegar with a side dish of kamatis at sibuyas (a little bit of salt or patis) … quick, convenient and simple … or saute with toyo and vinegar plus lots and lots of sliced onions – perfect pulutan with ice cold beer (San Miguel or whatever) …

    My wife’s friend whose family is based in Geneva always asks their friends (if they’re headed for Europe) to try and bring along three to five kilos of Purefoods hotdogs because it has a taste profile that his kids (who are laking-Manila bago napadpad abroad) have a craving for every so often.

    Um, must be setting out on a long trip. Anyway, I think every Filipino food fiend should aspire to dining at least once on the ultimate Filipino luxe dish, tortang alimasag.

    1. pochero/cocido

    2. fish escabeche/ sarciado/ or en taucho

    6. paksew na pata/ humba

    7. pancit molo

    8. Luzon bachoy (not mami, actually, steak and kidney soup)

    9. kilawing labanos and librillo

    10. tortang alimasag/ gambas rebosadas/camarones rebosados

    Lumped together dishes that can be substituted with each other or otherwise pretty similar. Rare is the knowledgeable waiter who can point out that you have just ordered three dishes with identical taste profile. One day in this Toronto turo-turo,
    server was pushing her gulay na chayote to me so I told her but I just had that yesterday and she says, yesterday’s was gulay na upo.

    Crispy Pata
    Bicol Express
    Pako Salad
    Seaweed Salad
    Humba
    Paella – though strictly speaking I am not sure that this can be claimed to be Pinoy…. :)

    8. adobong pusit
    9. salted eggs with kamatis
    10. biringhe (i like the seafood version than chicken, this is my tita’s specialty)

    my list goes on …

    kare-kare seafood – this is my dad’s version. he mixes all seafoods like tahong, hipon, halaan, crabs, and some veggies sometimes fish fillet and uses the sauce for kare-kare.

    i was going thru the comments and saw someone entered street food, baka next time you can also do a list for this or perhaps favorite food when you were a kid, like tira-tira, mr cinco, texas & bigboy bubble gum, and those cheese curls you get in exchange for old newspapers – i miss my childhood foodies.

    These are the Pinoy food I can not live without:

    1. Pork/Chicken Adobo
    2. Siopao
    3. Lugaw (with or without tripe) with tokwa & baboy.
    4. Turon
    5. Fried rice with egg and longganiza for breakfast
    6. Nilaga with chorizo de bilbao and ham pata. Its a kapampangan thing.
    7. Alige ng talangka
    8. Buko juice
    9. Pork barbecue
    10. Pinakbet

    Alternates:

    1. Okay, I can trade the alige ng talangka for a crispy daing na bangus.
    2. The pork barbecue can be replaced with okoy or pritong lumpia.
    3. Longganiza can be traded for danggit.
    4. Chicken empanada and siopao is a toss up. But siopao by a nose.
    5. What the…rice cooked with pandan of course.

    These are my faves :

    1. Binagoongang Baboy – most specially the crispy kind wherein the pork is fried first
    2. Crispy Pata – with suka, toyo, onions and sili as its dipping sauce
    3. Tocino – i know it’s not good for you because it has salitre but it’s still yummy
    4. Ginataang Hipon – preferably made with thick gata, not the watery commercial kind
    5. Adobo Flakes – crispy but not too much otherwise it becomes hard and too crunchy (hope that makes sense)
    6. Rellenong Alimango – the ones placed on the crab shell
    7. Inihaw na Baboy/Liempo
    8. Homemade Sardines in Olive Oil – our helper used to slow cook galunggong in spices, slow cooked until the bones get really soft
    9. Chicharong Bulaklak – with vinegar as its dipping sauce
    10. Fried Danggit or better yet Lamayo from Palawan – works best eaten with garlic fried rice
    11. La Paz Batchoy – my preference, without the liver, etc. but with the chicharon
    12. Pork Barbeque

    I am surprised not to see some of my favorites up there!
    10. Arroz caldo – very indicative of the fusion of Chinese, Spanish and Malay cuisine
    9. Empanadas – they might be originally Galician, but the PI have made them their own
    8. Binagoongan – preferably made with bagnet and sili
    7. Itlog maalat, kamatis at sibuyas – a complete source of protein and vegetable
    6. Embutido – even more spectacular wrapped in caul fat instead of foil
    5. Giniling – the Pinoy 30-minute meal
    4. Sinangag – simplicity and flexibility at its finest
    3. Lumpiang shanghai – I don’t know a single Filipino or American who can resist
    2. Corned beef – what Filipino pantry doesn’t have at least a can or two
    1. Rellenong manok – probably the acme of the Filipino culinary arts
