The food in the Philippines garners mixed reviews from expats, but, as with most things, they might not be eating the right things. Beef is harder to come by here, and usually much more expensive. Fish, white meat (chicken), and the other white meat (pork) are the meats of choice in the country. And everything comes with rice. Rice and eggs for breakfast, chicken and rice for lunch, rice and anything else for dinner. When in doubt, I know I can't go wrong with old faithful - grilled barbecued chicken on a stick.
