FoodCrush Podcast: Filipino cuisine, from lumpia to pancit

More than a century after the United States Navy sailed into Manila Bay, sank the Spanish Armada and took control of The Philippines, Filipino fare is finally having its day in the U.S. But what comprises the cuisine of this diversely influenced archipelago?

We chat with Alexa and Matthew Alfaro of Meat on the Street about the unique flavors inherent to Filipino fare, the recipes they grew up eating and the challenges of introducing unfamiliar flavors and dishes to their customers. Along the way, we get to know more about these young entrepreneurs and their journey in sharing their family's rich and delicious cultural heritage.
