From the hearty goodness of Ilocano dinengdeng, to Cebu’s delectable pastries and fresh seafood, to the Maranaos’ spicy palapa, Filipino cuisine never fails to intrigue and entice visitors. With every local delicacy promising a unique gustatory experience, one of the best ways to experience the richness of our culture is through the taste buds.

Reinforced by the new Sooo Pinoy ambassador, former Tourism Secretary Joseph “Ace” Durano, Unilever Food Solutions presents this exciting, one-of-a-kind contest that aims to showcase the Philippines’ rich culinary treasures as part of the Sooo Pinoy advocacy which encourages Filipinos to explore and embrace our diverse culinary identity by dining out at Filipino cuisine restaurants. One of the country’s keenest travelers and most fervent advocates of Filipino culture, Ace Durano believes that trying out Pinoy delicacies is a great way to discover all the delights that our islands have to offer. “Everyone who comes to the Philippines definitely has to savor the wealth of our cuisine,” he says. “Food has always been an important part of our culture, and our local specialties reflect the distinctiveness and diversity of each area. Filipinos thus have countless delicious reasons to be proud of our culinary heritage, which is something that we should strive to promote to the rest of the world.”
