A Filipino’s love affair with rice

Posted on April 4, 2015


I am starting a blog about the food I cook in my own home, Filipino cuisine. This is to let you see what happens in my own kitchen. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as Food Trippin’. Follow me here too! :)

Ann's Filipino Food Diary

One true fact amongst Filipino households is that rice is always part of a meal. Kanin or rice is literally eaten in the morning, noon and night with a good chance of having it in-between too. It is the staple that every Filipino finds comfort in.

A typical Filipino meal often starts with steamed plain rice that is paired with everything and anything, be it stews, grilled food or fried food. Rice drizzled with soy sauce is already a meal I would stop for. After all these years here in Toronto, I still have hinon-onan (fish cooked in vinegar and garlic) with rice to start my day. I have tried going North American way of a cereal and milk but I seem to just be able to sustain it for a few days. The craving for Filipino breakfast would set in really fast.
