NomadicBoys top 10 favorite foods in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazineOur very own NomadicBoys Nibbled their way around the Philippines, sending back this report on their top 10 favorite foods. You will not believe #2! From our guys:

If you believed half the blogs about the Filipino cuisine, you’d think it was one of the worst places on earth for a foodie. But this is simply not the case!

We found many traditional yummy prizes to enjoy and with the exception of balut, here’s our 10 famous foods (and drinks!) we loved and think everyone must try in the Philippines.

#1 CHICKEN ADOBO: the famous Filipino dish

Stefan and local friend eating Adobo

Chicken adobo is one of the most famous foods to try in the Philippines, known and loved by everyone.

Adobo means “marinade” in Spanish and this is just that: chicken (or pork) marinated in a mixture of soya sauce and vinegar. Other ingredients are added depending on whose recipe you follow.

Our recipe for chicken adobo has been simplified to enable us to replicate it at home. Another recipe we tried was infused adobo with tea at the excellent restaurant: Station 7Tea8S  in Quezon City with our local friend Dennis.

#2 BALUT: duck embryo street food snack

Now THIS bad boy always raises eyebrows with every foreigner.

Balut is a developing duck embryo boiled and eaten as a snack in the shell and with a splash of vinegar. This is definitely one of the most famous foods to try in the Philippines (and probably the strangest).

We spoke to ManAboutWorld Global Correspondent DJ Yabis (born in the Philippines but based in Dusseldorf) about his passion for travel, and we selected his journey  to his homeland as this month’s Parting Shots in our magazine. Here’s the expanded story and more of his photos.

1.   Why do you love to travel?

It’s very simple. I love traveling because I am happiest when I am on the road.

2. How far in advance do you plan your trips?

It depends if I need a visa! For trips that don’t require one, I usually plan 2-4 weeks in advance. Mostly just flight and accommodation booking. I’m very spontaneous.
