My name is Leny and my co-author is Rolan. And of course, we are Filipinos! And just like most Filipinos, we grew up with home cooked Filipino dishes and of course rice, rice and rice!!! We both love and live Filipino dishes that even though we are far away from the homeland, we continue to cook and serve Filipino dishes almost on a daily basis. Thus, this site is born!!!
Welcome to Filipino Recipe Reviews!
Our love of Filipino dishes brought us to many Filipino sites, blogs and videos offering Pinoy recipes. And so we decided to come up with reviews to find the best adobo, kare kare, pancit, and many many more.
Just as our name implies, our site aims to provide reviews of traditional Filipino dishes and its different variations as well as Asian inspired Filipino recipes found in hundreds of sites, blogs and/or videos.
We will be testing each recipe that we review and it is our goal to help you find the best recipe for your everyday cooking or any special occasion through our objective and straight forward opinions. This site caters to the newbie in Filipino cooking to the masters of this exotic cuisine.
We are also putting together a collection of original recipes that our family and friends have enjoyed. Some of them are recipes that our family have kept over generations and some are recipes shared by our friends.
So what makes us different?
What makes us different from other food review sites is that we test each dish that we review in an attempt to help you decide if a recipe is worth cooking and serving. How many times have you searched for a recipe and wondered if it is true to its claims of greatness??? In our countless search of Filipino recipes, we know how frustrating it can be to try a a new recipe only to be disappointed and sometimes, even embarrassed in the end.
Rolan and I are proud to be Filipinos and we are proud of our culture, part of which is our much celebrated dishes. Our food always brought back great memories of our childhood, families and our roots. We both grew up with Filipino cooking and there is no better source of reviews but from someone who live and breathe Filipino!
We want to make our site an interactive experience, if you have a recipe that you want us to cook and review, please let us know. We would love to hear what you think about our site, about us and our reviews. And if you enjoy our site as much as we enjoy writing reviews for you, please recommend us to your families and friends.
