We've loved Filipino food ever since we had it years ago at a Filipino wedding. Before you head on your next trip to the Philippines (or to your local ethnic restaurant) be sure to be familiar with these delicacies.
If you're heading to a new country, ask anyone for advice and they'll be sure to tell you not to miss some great, local cuisine. "You've got to try the pizza in Italy or a curry in India," they might say. But, what about the other cultural options available? How about kebab in Berlin, or Indian food in London, or even Chinese in Italy? All of these foods, despite the fact that they're not native or "authentic" to the place they're in, are cultural experiences all their own. By all means, go to Italy and eat their pasta and don't miss the chicken rice in Singapore. But, the next time you're on a trip and hungry, don't limit yourself to having an "authentic" experience, be sure to try everything the locals are having, regardless where the cuisine originated.

The Italians invented it, Pizza Hut globalized it, and pretty much the entire world has appropriated pizza into their local cuisine. When I set out to write this, what I expected to find was adaptations on the classic tomato and cheese using local ingredients. What I found, however, was a descent into the absurd. What's revealing about a culture is what they are willing to put on their pizza. Click below to see my strange pizza finds, ranging from crocodile to corn, from the exotic to the disgusting.
