With about 7,641 islands, the Philippines has just enough flavors to match, all fused together in the country’s cuisine. Along with these diverse flavors, come a myriad of fun moments- experimenting with more than 15 ingredients in halo-halo, eating with bare hands during boodle parties, enjoying five meals a day including merienda, all the while bonding with friends and family whether there’s a ‘handaan’ or a big gathering, or just a simple get-together.
