Welcome to Kinilaw.
Kinilaw (kee-nee-lao): Arguably the oldest known cooking method and dish of the Philippines, kinilaw traditionally entails the use of fresh seafood harvested from the various bodies of water surrounding the Philippine archipelago and the addition of a souring component typically consisting of either vinegar or citrus fruit. While regional variations of this dish can be found throughout the numerous and distinct provinces of the three main regions of Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao, the one common feature of kinilaw is to preserve the freshness and taste of perishable foods.
Kinilaw seeks to collect and preserve your stories about Filipino food. What does Filipino food mean to you? What memories do you have about eating, making, craving, and seeking Filipino food?
