what is filipino food?

No one can accurately answer the one question Filipinos get asked all the time: "What is Filipino food?" The simplest way to put it is that Filipino dishes reflects our cultural history. Rooted in Spanish and Asian influences, Filipino food is unique, flavorful, and definitely an underrated culinary tradition.

DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY

Cuisine de Manille, formerly known as Pearl of Manila, is an authentic Filipino restaurant that has been serving up traditional dishes since 2003 in Montreal. Unique to this restaurant is that there is no menu, customers choose their meals from a set of dishes.

IT'S ALL IN THE BOLD TASTE

Cuisine de Manille serves more than just the traditional lumpia rolls and pancit dishes. All plates are made fresh on the daily by our dedicated family with a passion for cooking. From their famous lechon (pork on a spit) to their daring dinuguan (savory pork stew in a spicy dark gravy of pig blood) to their most popular halo-halo dessert in the hot summer days, all dishes will make you remind you of eating at a traditional Filipino family fiesta.
