Hi, I'm Jessica, a Filipino and Vietnamese American woman, and I LOVE food.
And there's no argument that other people are also very enthusiastic about food.
Even Spam, an interesting-looking canned meat, is loved by many. You can find many spam enthusiasts all around, especially on the internet.
So this got me thinking, what are cultural foods that Asians love?
Asian food has become more popular and trendy on the internet, which is great! It's truly wonderful to see dishes and ingredients get the recognition they deserve, but when it's your own culture's food, it's less of a trend and more of a wholesome comfort that might remind you of your family. I'm talking less boba tea and more rice porridge. And I wonder what Asians love to eat or what their favorite dish is. Is there a memory tied to a dish or is it just a food they find super comforting?
