Best Filipino Comfort Foods to Try for the Rainy Season

June 30, 2021

Share on:

Nothing beats a scrumptious meal that not only warms the stomach but also the heart. Preparing a meal plan might seem a very easy task most especially when it is still just an idea but actually writing it down and preparing every single thing is a different story. Nevertheless, there are a lot of food recipes that people can look up to on the internet and try within the comfort of their homes.

 

Like other countries, the Philippines has developed its distinct cuisine from different cultures which resulted in a very unique set of foods. More than its culture, Philippine cuisine is unique because of the creativity of its people that leads to the fruition of divine, flavorful dishes. The country has a wet and dry season which also greatly affects how every Filipino home prepares its menu for the day.

 

Rainy Day Shot in a Dirt Road

 

Truly, it is gratifying to feel full every meal, especially when it rains. One cannot let this season pass without feeling that warm sensation in the stomach after gulping a bowl of tasty soup. To spice things up, here are some of the best Filipino comfort foods to try at home for this rainy season:

 

The Best Comfort Food for a Rainy Season Weather in the Comforts of your Crown Asia Home

 

1. Champorado

 

Chocolate rice porridge or champorado is an all-time favorite Filipino food that is usually made for breakfast but can also be served any time of the day. This chocolatey goodness can be traced back to the Galleon Trade when Mexicans introduced their champurrado to Filipino traders, a cacao-based warm and thick drink perfect for cold weather. However, champorado is a lot different because it is made with glutinous rice, tablea or cocoa powder, and is topped with milk. Unlike the common misconception about this porridge, champorado is not too sweet. The sweetness will depend on the amount of milk but without putting it yet, the strong impression of dark chocolate goodness is highlighted. Filipinos top it up with tuyo (dried salted fish) or pan de sal.

 

2. Arroz Caldo, Goto, and Lugaw

Philippine rice porridge is a food for everyone. Filipinos prepare this for breakfast since it is easy to cook and there is a lot of seasoning to match its plain but satisfying flavor. Arroz Caldo is a Spanish term for brothy rice but this ginger-flavored meal can be traced back to its origin from Chinese traders. The key ingredients of this porridge are rice, ginger, garlic, onion, black pepper, and chicken stock. There are also a variety of toppings that makes this porridge more flavorful and satisfying like boiled eggs, toasted garlic, calamansi juice, fried tofu, and fish sauce.

 

The difference between Arroz Caldo, goto, and lugaw is pretty simple. Arroz caldo has chicken as its meat ingredient, goto uses beef, tripe, and other internal organs, while lugaw is a plain rice porridge and is usually paired with boiled eggs.

 

3. Bulalo

 

This light-colored soup is traditional to Southern Luzon where cattles roam and graze freely. Bulalo is made from cooking beef shank and bones for hours for the soup to have a richer flavor when the collagen and fat are mixed into the broth. Prepared in a large cauldron, there is a lot of vegetables present in this stew like corn, chayote, bok choi, plantain, onion, and ginger, and cabbage. This dish is indeed a bowl of protein and fiber. The main highlight of bulalo is the bone marrow which is removed by tilting and shaking the bone until it comes out. Tagaytay and Batangas are known for the best bulalos in the Philippines.

 

4. Tinolang Manok

This chicken ginger stew soup is believed to be a result of cultural exchange with China. It is a very famous food for every Filipino home because the food is quite easy to prepare and the ingredients are present even in small local stores. Also, this dish is prepared when someone is not feeling well because it helps to warm the stomach. Garlic, onion, and gingered are sauteed along with the peppered chicken. When the flavors have seeped into the chicken, chicken broth or rice water is poured. This is followed by sliced unripe papayas and when the cooking time is nearly done, one should top it up with chili leaves.

 

5. Batangas Lomi

 

Lomi is a type of hearty Filipino dish that originates from Batangas and is made up of thick yellow noodles in a very flavorful broth. This is always served hot and incorporates meat and vegetable ingredients. It is usually topped with pork, chicken, or offals for its protein content. Some of the vegetables in this are cabbage and carrots. Lomi cannot be called ‘Batangas Lomi’ if it is not generous with other toppings like kikiam, ham, chicharon, boiled eggs, or meatballs. Soy sauce and calamansi are then served separately.

 

6. Sinigang

Known for its savory and sour taste, this tamarind-based soup is famous and well-loved in the Philippines. This is usually prepared with pork belly and a variety of vegetables perfect as a meal itself but is usually savored with hot rice. The standard vegetables used in sinigang are labanos, kangkong, gabi (taro root), okra, snake beans, onions, and tomatoes. Unripe tamarind is what makes sinigang unique in taste because of its strong tangy flavor that when mixed with pork belly fat will surely satisfy one’s longing for a perfect hearty meal. Although pork sinigang is famous, Filipinos also love sinigang na hipon or sour shrimp soup.

 

7. Ginataang bilo-bilo

 

Unlike the previous dishes, this unique Filipino snack is rather sweet. This is made up of glutinous rice balls, rich coconut cream, tapioca pearls, and ripe jackfruit along with several ingredients that are also found in halo-halo, a Filipino dessert. These ingredients include cubes of purple yam, taro root, plantain, incorporated with vanilla extract or pandan leaves. Ginataang bilo-bilo is also served cold but most people prefer a hot serving of creamy Ginataang bilo-bilo.

 

Eating a satisfying meal appropriate for the weather is also a self-care. As the saying goes, one cannot love, sleep, and perform well without eating well. Rainy day or not its very important to have a hearty meal to have the energy for the day. As important as your daily meal is choosing the best home for you and your family, rainy days are coming so a house and lot for sale that offers safety and security should be your number one priority.
