If you open a Filipino restaurant, what would be your menu?
I know, I know. A lot have already been said about Filipino restaurants outside the motherland.
If we miss pinoy food, go home and cook. There is no place like home.
It could never be as good as the way mom cooks it.
Why is Pinoy food not as popular as Thai or Vietnamese?
Yada yada yada.
But let’s not talk about the nitty-gritty details and make things much simpler. Think of this scenario. Say opening a restaurant that would cater to everybody, including non-Pinoy. A foreign country, a place where there is no Pinoy restaurant but there is a market that celebrates cultural diversity through food. People from all walks of life who welcomes good food with good price. Mid-range. Not fine dining, not carinderia-style. Service that would appeal even to the western culture. Authentic pinoy food and well-presented to impress. Don’t worry about the decor; it would definitely be taken good care of.
Please if you don’t mind, I’d like to know what you think by answering the following polls. Here are 3 things that may affect the way you choose. Think of…
1. Food you personally like.
2. Food you think non-Pinoys would like as well.
3. Food you will be proud of, you won’t hesitate to invite your non-Pinoy friends to try.
You may think a certain dish should be a main or you have another in mind that is not in the list. If so, please feel free to leave a comment.
