As someone who comes from a Filipino background, I grew up spoiled by endless homecooked, mouthwatering dishes that any modern-day foodie would die for. Filipino food is near and dear to my heart and remains one of my absolute favorite comfort food options. However, since growing up, I realized how most people are not aware of the real Filipino taste and famous dishes that will surely win the hearts of many. For now, I am not sharing a Filipino dish. I will share a recipe of my favourite comfort food for an on-the-go person like me who works in fashion and has a day job on aside.
