Food is one of the best items to represent a country or group’s culture. Everyone has a dish, a delicacy, or meal that can solely be attributed to them— in the Philippines alone, we can find thousands of restaurants and food establishments that serve food unique to our country.
With the overwhelming number of choices we have, we sometimes stick to our favorite restaurants to avoid taking time to make a decision on where to eat. Luckily, there are food vloggers on YouTube that help us with the decision-making by recommending and suggesting must-try food and restaurants! (Read: The Best Home Recipes by Erwan Heussaff)
