Peculiarities of National Philippine Cuisine

Due to the fact that the state is located virtually entirely on the islands, people most actively consume fish and the most unexpected seafood (shellfish, including deep, crustaceans, and cephalopods). Also, there are a lot of fresh coconut milk lovers, who add it to soups and various rice dishes. Furthermore, almost all dishes are richly flavored with hot spices - with the exception, perhaps, of succulent exotic fruits that are eaten raw.
