A Taste of the Middle East

Middle Eastern Dishes or even Mediterranean Foods are rich in spices. They give off strong flavors that are well blended with one another.

Filipino’s does not usually visit Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurants , except if they crave a dish they have tasted before, if they are Muslims and want to be sure that what they eat does not have anything to do with pork and if they want to go on a  little adventure trying out different kinds of food. There are only a few restaurants that serve this kind of dishes. Since in Philippines the demand for these types of food are not that high. Non arabs or middle easterners who are not aware or have not tasted how good their dishes are, would be missing some of the best flavorful dishes in their life.

But I tell you Middle Eastern/Mediterranean foods are a must try, and I am certain that once you have tasted the best of their kind you would surely want to come back and try more. You can even try cooking them on your own. These are dishes you surely would not want to miss, and I am about to reveal some of the best and my personal picks.
