Want to give your tastebuds a new experience? A Filipino restaurant has opened up at Valletta’s popular Suq tal-Belt, serving up flavours from one of Asia’s lesser-known food havens.

Pinoy Street Food had opened up in Marsaskala last year and it proved such a hit with the public, including Filipino expats, that it’s now expanded to reach a wider audience in the capital.

Pinoy is an absolute dream for people who seek adventurous gastronomical experiences.

Its wild dishes include dinuguan, a traditional Filipino stew of pork in dark pig blood and spices, and sisig, a pig’s head which is braised, grilled and stir-fried before it is served up on a sizzling dish.

If you’re after Filipino street food nibbles, then order the Pinoy platter, which consists of grilled chicken feet (that look exactly like what they are), hard-boiled quail eggs and fish balls. Close your eyes, take a bite and you can just imagine yourself on the bustling streets of Manila.

Pinoy has plenty of options for the less experimental souls too.

You’ll find Adobo on the menu. Made with chicken drumsticks or pork marinated in soy sauce and vinegar, it’s the unofficial Filipino national dish. Pinakbet, a curry of mixed veg steamed in shrimp sauce, will also set your taste buds whirling.

Of course, it also offers traditional Filipino deserts, such as the colourful Halo-Halo sundae, complete with fruit, sweet corn, beans and cornflakes, and sweet spring rolls filled with banana and jackfruit, an Asian fruit that finds its flavour somewhere between pineapple and mango.

Imagine combining the most seemingly random ingredients ever into a cup and coming up with a delicious concoction. This…

And despite its new location at the heart of Malta’s capital, Pinoy is quite affordable; no item on the menu will set you back more than €13.
