- American kids are featured in a Philippine food tasting video
- Most of the kids seemed to dislike the delicacies handed to them
- WatchCut Video creates other food tasting videos with these kids trying out different International and conceptual cuisines
Back then, if you’ve lived abroad the only Asian cuisines available for other cultures to try are Chinese, Japanese, and Indian. The Asian food market has limited options in non-Asian countries.
As the years have passed, other Asian cuisines have been greatly noticed and widely accepted such as Korean, Thai, Mongolian, and many more. Somehow, Filipino cuisine never took flight until just a few years ago.
More and more Filipino restaurants, both traditional and modern fusion ones, are being globally recognized by experts in the food industry. Suddenly, it’s the next best thing!
People from all over the world are becoming more curious to what the buzz is all about. Many have fallen in love with it while others aren’t so sure about what to feel about it. Video bloggers or ‘vloggers’ post their own reaction to eating Filipino cuisine that have added exposure to our beloved dishes.
In a new video posted on Youtube by WatchCut Video, American kids take on the challenge in eating your favorite Dilis, Dinuguan, Balot, and Taho.
Seven adorable cuties try to know where these odd dishes in front of them came from. Someone even tried to guess if it were from Korea or India.
According to a little girl, they do smell delicious, but they don’t know yet what they’re in for! They first tried the dilis, which is a dried small fish eaten whole. These kids couldn’t get the fact that they were about to eat the head of a fish and its bones as well.
Dinuguan made from pig’s blood and liver gives its distinct black color. Only a few kids tried it and almost wanted to vomit upon knowing that they ate blood.
Just like any other foreigner, they’re disgusted by what the balut looked like. Then comes the dessert, which is some sort of westernized taho. It’s supposed to be made with silken tofu, small tapioca pearls, and some brown sugar syrup.
