National Filipino Food Month: How foodpanda bridges cultures and cravings nationwide

April in the Philippines isn’t just about welcoming the sweltering summer heat, it’s also about celebrating something that’s close to every Filipino's heart—food! So, it’s no surprise that the Philippines has dedicated April as the "Buwan ng Kalutong Pilipino'' or Filipino Food Month as a tribute to the rich tapestry of Filipino culinary heritage. 

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, Filipino cuisine has found its way into the hearts and plates of Filipinos everywhere in the country. Thanks to online food and grocery delivery platforms like foodpanda, the accessibility to Pinoy delicacies has never been easier, bridging the gap between craving and satisfaction for Filipinos and food enthusiasts everywhere.

The pulse of Filipino cravings on foodpanda

foodpanda has experienced a significant surge in Filipino food orders, coinciding with an increase in its partner vendors offering Filipino dishes. Currently, nearly 60% of its partner vendors include Filipino dishes in their offerings, with 9% of these restaurants specializing only in Filipino cuisine.

The platform reveals fascinating insights into the Filipino palate. Topping the list is the favorite Halo-Halo, a cool treat perfect for the country's warm weather. Not far behind are Pinoy faves like Pandesal, Puto, Tusok-Tusok, and Turon, all easily ordered with a simple tap.

When it comes to hearty meals, the "Silog" dishes, Sisig and Lechon win big as comfort food. Interestingly, orders for Silog have more than doubled those for Sisig, which proves just how much Pinoys love this combination of garlic rice, fried egg, and meat.

But foodpanda isn’t just about ready-to-eat meals. It’s also great for those who want to cook Filipino dishes at home or grab their go-to local snacks, offering products from well-known brands like Gardenia for bread, San Miguel for beer, Nature's Spring for water, Rebisco for biscuits, and Universal Robina for a variety of snacks.

Pinoy Pride Restaurants to Watch Out For

Filipino Food Month is a chance to dive into dishes packed with tradition and flavor. In celebration of National Filipino Food Month, let's spotlight some restaurants that are not just serving meals but are ambassadors of Filipino culture and culinary excellence:

Beginning in Metro Manila, Gerry’s Grill is a Filipino favorite not just because of its iconic dishes like Beef Kare-Kare, Pork Sisig, and Inihaw na Pusit, but also because it evokes the feeling of home with restaurants designed to accommodate families and large groups. "Wherever Filipinos are in the world, Gerry’s Grill is their go-to for authentic Filipino dishes, flavorful desserts, and a one-stop shop for everything related to Pinoy food. By being available on foodpanda, we can bring that homey feeling to the doorsteps of our Pinoy customers," said Gerry’s Grill Segment Marketing Manager, Kenneth John Dela Cruz.

In Visayas, Hukad is one of Cebu’s must-visit restaurants for its endless serving of Filipino dishes, from Lechon Cebu to Grilled Pork Belly and special Bantayan Baked Scallops. Their commitment to authentic Filipino cuisine and culture shines through their carefully chosen recipes, ingredients, and cooking methods that are true to the traditional Filipino way of life. 

“We work with Filipino chefs and experts to ensure our dishes authentically represent the Philippines' culinary heritage while educating customers on the cultural significance of our food. With the support of foodpanda, we have significantly enhanced our visibility, helping us share the joy of Filipino cuisine with as many people as possible,” shared Kristine Paula R. Kokseng, General Manager of Hukad. 

All the way from Southern Philippines where the Tuna Belt lies, Mindanao-based Tuna Republik is famous for its Sutukil Dish, which is a combination of SUgba (Grilled), TUwa (Stewed), and KILaw (Raw tossed in vinegar). Harnessing the rich abundance of tuna in their region, their dishes not only tantalize the Filipino palate but also offer exceptional value at an affordable price. 

Owners of Tuna Republik Jerome and Shiella Aranas revealed, “While our menu incorporates tuna in every dish, we were also able to preserve the authentic Filipino cooking technique because some of our skilled cooks hail from the Indigenous People (IP) sector. foodpanda’s steady and efficient platform has been a great help to us in introducing Tuna Republik to first-time customers and keeping loyal ones.”

"Supporting partner vendors with Filipino-centric menus is close to our hearts. It's not just about business, it's about keeping our culture alive through our food. By helping these restaurants, we're boosting local communities and keeping our traditions strong for the next generations to enjoy and carry on, “ said Louie Lim, foodpanda Philippines Head of Account Management. 

National Filipino Food Month is more than just an occasion to indulge in the country's culinary delights, it's a reminder of the rich cultural heritage that Filipino cuisine represents. Whether you're dining in the Philippines or ordering from across the world, the flavors of Filipino food are bound to touch your heart and stomach, making every meal a celebration of culture, community, and unparalleled taste.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire - Cold or Cool?

The universe of Ghostbusters continues to expand and now spans to more generations as it makes more movies like Ghostbusters Frozen Empire. And for us which had some recall with the original Ghostbuster movies and cartoon series, this film teases us with the comeback of some of the original cast of the OG movies.

That is what the current Ghostbusters universe is now trying to converge. This is where I also learned that this is now being produced by Ghost Corps, which is a subsidiary of Columbia Pictures to oversee the production and development of the GCU (Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe). 

For this film, it continues the story of Ghostbusters: Afterlife with Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd, and Celeste O'Connor now located in New York for their operations encounters a new and mystical form of entity which is encased in an ancient vessel which seems like a very old version of the Ghostbusters somewhere in South Asia.

YOLO - What’s The Secret To A Hot, Spicy, And Burning Life?

When we talk about YOLO, we associate it with doing something risky, because "you only live once" right? Interestingly, this is the title of the Chinese film starring Jia Ling who is also the director. Though we have seen many films with an actor-director role but with this one, she also went the extra mile by doing something really transformative which showed her dedication in making the film.

YOLO in the Mandarin title is 热辣滚烫 (Rè là gǔntàng) roughly translate to “hot, spicy, boiling, burning life” which would also mean adding some spice to life that has become bland which was the initial situation of the main character Du Leying (Jia Ling) who lives a sedentary life, no motivation to find work, and is overweight. She is pushed by her family to at least get a job but is quite stubborn to do so. However, due to certain events, she is forced to leave their home and get a job on her own.

Following another set of events, she meets Hao Kun (Lei Jiaying) who teaches boxing. This now gets interesting with her enjoying the sport as well as the company of Hao Kun. Not to spoil, but she also got into an amazing transformation as the story progresses. But along the way, there are also a lot of struggles she faced in pursuing her dreams. With this you would now see how dedicated Jia Ling is for the film which no other director-actor has done.

Elevating Holistic Wellness through Optimal Liver Health

LAC, the leading health and wellness supplement retailer in the Philippines, supports World Liver Day 2024

Did you know your liver is a multitasking champion? This largest organ in your body filters blood, absorbs nutrients, removes toxic substances from the body, makes protein building blocks for your cells, and acts as your body's vitamin and mineral bank. However, despite its ability to keep the body functioning properly, liver disease quietly claims thousands of lives each year in the Philippines alone.

Liver disease refers to any condition that affects the liver's structure or function which can develop into four stages: Hepatitis, Fibrosis, Cirrhosis, and ultimately—Liver failure. According to The Global State of Liver Health 2022 Report, liver disease complications resulted in a death rate of 2.65%, with an estimated 16,500 fatalities in the Philippines—a stark reality we cannot overlook. While alcohol is a major culprit, habits like regularly consuming fatty foods, sedentary routines, unhealthy diets, and relying on certain medications for a prolonged time also lead to liver problems.

Fallout - An Okey Dokey Live Action!

Many are still quite wary when video games are given the live action treatment given that some things in the game may not be replicated for a live action adaptation. And when FALLOUT was announced to have one, it was a 50/50 reception and anticipation for the fans of the game. Even myself who played a simple mobile version of the game wondered if certain creatures, locations and factions would be represented well. And from what I saw in the episodes did surprise me.

Given that this takes place in a dystopian future of the United States, things are very complicated in terms of lifestyle, like with vault dwellers stuck in the 50-60’s aesthetic yet also possess some advanced technologies despite looking frozen in time. The future of humanity that fell under the great nuclear wars left the world scarred with radiation, mutations, and chaos which is a perfect premise for the stories of the people who would come from these sectors.

It's almost time for Abigail's bloody hunt to begin. Midnight screenings for heist-turned-horror “Abigail” available on April 17

Alisha Weir’s ballerina vampire loves a delicious bloodbath in “Abigail.”

Get ready to scream. 

Kidnapped ballerina and – unbeknownst to her captors – very hungry vampire Abigail is out for blood. Don’t miss this bloody feast when “Abigail” premieres in cinemas April 17. And if you’re not the type who scares easily, dare to catch “Abigail” at midnight on opening day. 

From Radio Silence – the directing team of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (“Scream” 2022, “Scream VI”) – “Abigail” begins with a high-stakes heist, a dangerous mission that, if all goes according to plan, could net six strangers a staggering $50 million. Recruited for the job by a mysterious fixer, the team comprises the driver, the sniper, the medic, the muscle, the hacker, and the thin man, aka head of ops. Their real identities are kept secret from each other as a kind of insurance – should one of them be caught, that person would be unable to implicate her or his co-conspirators. Together, they must infiltrate the well-appointed home of a reclusive kingpin who presides over a vast criminal empire. After sedating and abducting his pre-teen ballerina daughter, Abigail (played by Alisha Weir), the crew must safely transport the girl back to a remote mansion, then settle in to wait for the sun to rise and the cash to turn up. But once inside the isolated mansion, the captors start to dwindle, one by one, and they discover, to their mounting horror, that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl.

In this self-referential and comedic twist, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent casts Nicolas Cage as a heightened version of himself, Nick Cage. Facing financial instability and searching for purpose, Cage begrudgingly accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday celebration of a wealthy superfan (Pedro Pascal). The event quickly spirals out of control when Cage is recruited by the CIA and thrust into an unexpected mission. Blurring the lines between reality and his cinematic personas, Cage must draw upon his most iconic roles in a desperate bid to save himself and those he holds dear. A love letter to the actor's sprawling career, the film blends suspense, action, and humor to create a uniquely entertaining experience.

“It’s in New York, it brings us back to where the Ghostbusters originated so that’s really special,” says Grace. “New villain, new storylines, new problems that at least Phoebe has never encountered. It’s bigger scale, more blockbuster, action, there’s a lot. It’s very fun.”

In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age. Besides Grace, the film also stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim and original Ghostbusters Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts.
