Filipino food has become the talk of the town again after American rapper Cardi B posted shout outs about some of her Pinoy favorite dishes.
Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, popularly known as Cardi B, declared on her Instagram Stories on May 26, 2020, about her love for Filipino home-cooked dishes such as Pinoy-style lumpiang shanghai and buko salad which she referred to as fruit salad.
Lumpiang shanghai is a deep-fried roll usually filled with ground meat, carrots, and spices while buko salad is a chilled dessert with young coconut meat and sweetened milk.
On her Instagram stories, the 27-year-old musician and TV personality said that the Pinoy lumpia is “good as hell” while the fruit salad “tastes wild good.”
The Grammy Award-winning influential music celebrity also credited her Filipino aunt-in-law as the one who prepared the Filipino dishes.
“This cuisine is Philippines ’cause y’all know my aunt-in-law, my aunt… she’s like my aunt already because…Man! You’ve been around for 22 years?” Cardi said while showing the Filipino dishes in her video.
This is not the first time that Filipino food has received great review from international celebrities.
In October 2019, American TV host Martha Stewart visited the Philippines and afterward shared on her social media how she fell in love with Filipino-style adobo.
Final Destination star Devon Sawa also spent his Christmas holiday last year in the Philippines and was all praises for Philippine mangoes and Jollibee meals.
The late American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain also documented his favorite Filipino dishes when he traveled to the country in 2015.
