Manila, and largely, the Philippines, has been a popular destination ever since. Especially now with the advent of better transportation options, technology, and an emerging focus on globalization, it’s become more and more accessible to foreign visitors wanting to experience the country for themselves, or perhaps settle down and call the Philippines their new home.
In fact, Conde Nast recently released an article proving that the Philippines is truly an emerging nation in the travel scene, especially when it comes to food. In the article, Conde Nast had listed fourteen destinations that were considered as up-and-coming all over the world. The list included places like Baku in Azerbaijan, Tehran in Iran, and of course, Manila in the Philippines.
According to the online magazine, travelers must go for the city’s rising upscale dining experiences, stating that “its culinary scene has been at a steady boil, thanks largely to its history as a stronghold of Spanish, American, and Japanese colonialists. In one (long) day, you can eat pillowy pork buns in the world's oldest Chinatown, yakiniku at bare-bones Japanese restaurants in Little Tokyo, chicharrón in Quezon City, and plates of Persian food in Mandaluyong.” It might surprise some, but more and more Michelin-starred chefs are opting to plant their flags in Manila, hoping to capture the fast-rising affluent middle class.
Simply put, Filipino cuisine and its many variations just taste very good no matter what.
