For decades, our Filipino food store FilStop has been providing a taste of home to the Filipino community in and around Jersey City, New Jersey, and since the advent of its online shopping site, to customers around the globe. With this blog, we want to encourage the exploration and appreciation of all things Philippine—via its food.
We feature articles that illustrate the intertwined nature of food, history and culture in the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora. You can read about Filipino food’s big-screen debut, check out a recipe for Chicken Afritada and be tantalized by a review of a food-centric Philippine resort.
