Is it even a party without Lumpiang Shanghai?
The global food website TasteAtlas has ranked the popular Lumpiang Shanghai dish as the best Filipino food among other items.
The Filipino-style deep-fried spring roll bested the list with a score of 4.9 and was followed by the soup-cuisine Sinigang garnering a score of 4.8, and third comes the sweet, garlicky, and peppery Tocino with 4.7.
Last August, the global food website hailed Sinigang as the top-rated vegetable soup in the world.
"Lumpia is a simple and flavourful Filipino finger food that evolved from the Chinese spring rolls. Each lumpia consists of a rice or flour dough wrap that is stuffed with meat (most often ground pork or beef) and vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, onions, and garlic. It is then sealed with egg wash and fried," the food website wrote.
"Once it has been prepared, its crusty, crunchy exterior and tender interior are perfectly complemented with the sweet and sour dipping sauce. It can be eaten as a snack or as a side dish, and it is almost impossible to see a Filipino feast without at least one variation of lumpia, such as unfried lumpia, lumpia with bean sprouts, hearts of coconut palm, bangus, or saba bananas (ripe plantains)," it added.
Other Filipino dish mentioned are sisig, adobo and lechon which was tagged as "great", daing, pinangat and torta marked as "OK", and finally balut, diniguan, ang pinipig under the category "worst".
TasteAtlas describes itself as "an encyclopedia of flavors, a world atlas of traditional dishes, local ingredients, and authentic restaurants."
