    Ok. I've watched at least four episodes from this channel and I realized I have to stop. I'm getting jealous and envious of Mike having such a foodie adventure like these. I'll come back, but small doses.

    next time you visit philippines, i highly recommend you get each signature dish from the respective provinces which they came from, they taste a lot better than those restaurants.

    Puto bumbong is not ube. It's perurutong rice so you won't taste the ube flavor in it 😊 Love this video though. I feel hungry and sad I'm not in the Philippines 😢

    What makes Mike above all food vloggers is he actually finish every meal especially if he likes the food and explain the taste in metaphoric ways that we can actually taste the food that hes eating..

    One thing I've noticed with Mike is he likes to chew the whole chili where Filipinos used to cut them or mash them to taste its hot flavor. 🌶️ Thank you for enjoying Filipino food!
    PS. Watching this with an empty stomach is an absolute torture.

    Honestly If I would eat even 1 meal in the video, I would gain 20 pounds and that would take me a year to burn off. It’s amazing how you keep your figure when you indulge in delicious food.
    No seriously. I’m jealous of your abilities

    I introduced my husband to Filipino food, and now he's addicted!! Sometimes I cook it, sometimes I get it from the local Filipino store who cooks fresh dishes every day. I don't know if it's a filipino thing, but I LOVE feeding people. I use food to show my love - and Filipino food, to me, is the ultimate expression of love - as it's the food I grew up with.
