Food Trip Friday # 2


For a Filipino who has no easy access to Filipino foods everyday, it is always a TREAT when somebody offers you a filipino delicacy.

I was happy to have eaten as much empanada as I can (take note: with take home) when one of my friends cook this. This empanada was baked and not fried so at least it was healthier.

From Wikipedia:
Filipino empanadas usually contain ground beef or chicken meat, potato, chopped onion, and raisins (somewhat similar to the Cuban "picadillo") in a sweetish wheat flour dough. Some Filipinos are not partial to the sweetish flavour notes and prefer empanadas that are closer to the Hispanic versions. There are doughy baked versions, as well as flaky fried versions. Often, to lower costs, potatoes are added as a filler, and olives-- relatively expensive in the Philippines—are omitted.
