Try as we might, we at ELV find it hard to get behind Filipino (not Philipino) food.
Or even enjoy it.
Why, you ask? Because it seems like the least interesting, most over-fried, greasy and in-artfully seasoned of all Asian cuisines.
And don’t even get us started on the sweets…which are odd even by Asian standards.
But there’s a Filipino restaurant within walking distance of ELV’s law office now, that’s fairly filled with Filipinos, so we figured forgetting our fatuous failures is finally fortuitous.
Which means we shall frequent this restaurant in a final, futile(?) fueling of our face, and forgo the friction between the Philippines and our favor, to then either forget its frailties or fracture its facade.
We know, of course, that Filipinos and Filipino food can get along just fine without ELV’s endorsement, but clearly, if a white guy as passionate about all things Asian as ELV can’t get on board with this country’s food (after 15 years of trying), something is seriously amiss in its kitchens.
Zeus hath spoken.
That is all.
