And of course there are famous Filipino desserts. Here are just a few:
Halo-halo (known as the Queen of Desserts): an exotic mix featuring fruit, vegetables, coconut, all
colourfully stacked under shaved ice and topped with a dob of ice cream.
Bibingka: a popular dessert of pudding made of ground rice, sugar and coconut milk.
Cassava Cake: made from ground cassava, a starchy root rather like sweet potato.
The Philippines is also a showcase of worldwide cuisine. You don't have to go far to find food from other Asian
countries plus the best from Europe, America, and even Australia.
And the Philippines hasn't missed out on the fast-food chains either. Here you will find McDonald's and KFC, plus
the Philippine's own fast-food chain, Jollibee. Jollibee is an American-style fast-food chain, a pseudo combination
of McDonald's and KFC, but leans towards traditional Filipino tastes.
And there is Max's Restaurant - "The House that Fried Chicken Built" - which has been operating since
1945, even longer than KFC's franchise.
