Filipino food makes it to Bloomberg’s 2017 fancy food trend list
Pinoy pride! The Filipino cuisine is included in Bloomberg’s Eleven Fancy Food Trends You’ll Face in 2017.
Described by Bloomberg as an original fusion cuisine – a mix of among other things, Chinese, Spanish, Malay, and plenty of other Southeast Asian influences – is one of the food trends to watch out for in 2017.
Bloomber cited the rapid increase of Filipino food offerings, which include Bad Saint, where people start lining up for dinner at 3 p.m. and Angela Dimayuga’s Manhattan’s Mission Chinese Food. The report also cited Filipino restaurateur Dale Talde, who is opening more restaurants than anyone else, offering dishes like Filipino pork adobo tamale on the Talde Miami Beach menu. Chef Dale will soon be opening Rice & Gold, opening late in the spring in Manhattan, where he’ll serving dishes including Pinoy porridge arroz caldo.
In the bigger picture, Bloomberg said, Manila hosted a major food conference earlier this year that put some of the world’s elite chefs, including Andoni Luis Aduriz, a mainstay on the World’s 50 Best list.
