Food Porn Envy:
International Restaurant Dishes
the PH Needs
When eating out is your favorite hobby, next to reading food blogs or dreaming about your next meal—inevitably, there will be times when you get tired of the same old familiar food from the local culinary scene. Can we hear a “hell yeah,” foodies? For those always on the lookout for eureka moments in food, here’s a perfect way to liven up your day.
Try not to drool as you indulge on food porn from restaurants around the world. Also, special shout out to Pinoy restaurateurs: We’d love to taste more of these dishes on Philippine grounds!
8. Sushi Burrito
The ‘Sushi Burrito’ has hit NYC and it’s amazing.
Posted by INSIDER food on Friday, March 4, 2016
Pokeworks starts with perfectly-flattened rice and a base of greens. That’s topped with ahi or your preferred raw fish, then embellished with various kinds of toppings like mangoes, cucumber, sesame seeds, etc. This is generously finished off with mashed avocado and tobiko caviar then expertly rolled into one humongous, healthy snack.
So far we’ve seen the beauty that is the sushi burrito in Nori, Kapitolyo. Know any other places offering this delicious fusion dish?
7. Banana Foster French Toast
Watch the video, and you’ll never be content with ordinary French toast again. Quality Italian makes their version with raisin toasts filled with Nutella. As if that’s not decadent enough, they top it with bananas cooked in caramel and rum. It’s then topped with a sprinkling of candied hazelnuts.
6. Deep Fried Burger
This time the spotlight is on Brooklyn’s Korzo. Langos, or deep-fried Hungarian flatbread, envelops a huge grilled beef patty. There are more delicious things inside, though. With braised pork, sheep cheese and sauerkraut, the burger patty is definitely in good company.
5. Ube Doughnuts
We’re wealthy with ube in the form of jams, cakes and fish-shaped-treats. And we don’t have ube doughnuts?! What a shame… Manila Social Club whips our butts with their scrumptious, purple concoction. They start with ube flour and butter, piped into donuts, and then fried. They top it with ube frosting and crunchy sugar.
All in all, they’ve created a doughnut that’s crispy on the outside, light and moist on the inside and bursting with ube-flavor all throughout.
