Just like our Filipino Spaghetti which is starting to gain international fame because of its unique flavor. These are just two examples of dishes where salty meets sweet and this combination tickles your senses like nothing else. Now add to that a spicy sour dip of spicy vinegar. Yum!

A perfect combination of sweet, salty, and sticky! | www.foxyfolksy.comThe first time I made Filipino BBQ for Armin, he actually found it a bit weird. Not bad only weird. They are not quite accustomed to this kind of food. Sweet usually belongs to dessert. We, Filipinos, on the other hand, would put sugar in anything if possible. But now that he got the hang of it, he actually really likes it.

Maybe the only difficult part would be to get a banana catsup if you are not in the Philippines but you can find it in most Filipino/Asian stores or Supermarket. But if not, you can use tomato catsup, of course, it will not be the same but it will do.    

I know other people add 7-up or Sprite to their marinade but I haven’t tried it yet.  Maybe I should soon and will tell you how it goes.
