FoodMeOmaha Goes to the Philippines, Part 1: Introduction


FoodMeOmaha goes to the Philippines! Philippines Flag

In just a couple of days, I will be in the Philippines for the first time. I am super-excited for the culture, food, and fun to come. It’s a trip of lifetime guided by wonderful Filipino friends (and foodies), Maude and Joen.

My blogging will be temporarily on hiatus but I will be sending twitter updates @FoodMeOmaha.

When I return to Omaha, I will share some of my Filipino food experiences! Stay tuned for the blog post series, “FoodMeOmaha Goes to the Philippines” in January. I foresee glorious, memorable food in the Philippines.

Here’s a teaser of some of the Filipino food we will be feasting on.

  1. Philippines? Wow, have fun! I really want to go there too. I dream about Palau Islands. Are you comming to Taiwan? If you come, I will take you to Night Street Market 🙂

    • I agree! Pancit noodles is comfort food. And, the lechon (roasted pig) was the bomb in the Philippines! I will be writing about that in the future. 🙂
