My Top 5 Best Rainy Day Comfort Food


Philippines is in rainy season from June to September and what better way to keep us warm and feed our hungry tummy than our favorite rainy day comfort food? πŸ˜‰

Listed below are my five favorite dishes that my family orders or prepares on rainy days:

1. Arroz Caldo β€” a rice porridge and is best with chicken. When my sister cooks this dish she would put a lot of ginger to spice it up and would also put one chili pepper. Yummy!

2. Nilagang Baka β€” or β€œBoiled Beef Soup”. One of my favorite dishes of all time. It’s a delicious stew of beef with vegetables and spices, and is best served steaming hot. Perfect on a rainy day indeed!

3.Β Sinigang na Hipon (Shrimp) β€” A sour soup dish associated with real tamarind or readily bought powdered tamarind sinigang mix. Sinigang has a lot of variations but with shrimp is my favorite.

4.Β Champorado β€”Β  sweet chocolate rice, like a porridge too. I love it with condensed milk – the sweeter, the better. πŸ˜‰

5. Tinola β€” a ginger and onion based soup with chicken as the main ingredient. One of my ultimate favorite food too because I love the vegetables used in this dish especially the chili pepper leaves.

Give them a try! πŸ˜‰ I linked the recipes to their names from other websites and you could also see from there what the dishes looks like.
