I don't know why. Filipino food seems to take the worst of Spanish food mix it with the worst of American food and then produce something with a Pacific island flare. There is a Red Robin near my house which is a Filipino fast food joint (it is fittingly located in a Seafood City which is a Filipino super market). Generally they serve various fried dishes with rice; Filipino style fried chicken, fried fish, quick fried noodles, and deep fried vegetable rolls know as lumpia all served with sticky rice of course.

Honestly I prefer Malaysian or Korean food or even the more modern Japanese stuff (Chinese can get very monotonous) but every once in a while greazy deep fried Filipino food is exactly what the doctor ordered. Especially the savory soups.

If you're hungary I'd recommend goulash

Hungarian goulash is good. It's hard to find a place which serves real Hungarian goulash with Hungarian sweet paprika on the American Pacific coast though. Most of the Hungarians are on the east coast.

There is a good Bavarian restaurant not to far from my home and an Austrian place. They both make passable goulash.

I thought most hungarians are in Hungary

Oh, damn. I didn't even notice my misspelling. I blame the beer and the fact that it is 3:50 am.

We can't tell the difference

The Red Robin near my house is a specialty hamburger restaurant. Part of a chain.

There is an American Red robin chain so I have no idea how the Filipinos can get away with calling a chain Red Robin. Maybe Lancer can answer.

Maybe not.

He's an American who married a Filipino girl and who live in the Philippines for half the year. If anyone know it is him.

Is that qualification for knowing about trademark law?

Are you sure you want to hear the answer? It will be boring. I bet you can come up with an more interesting explanation, even it's not true.

It's a boring answer but a short one.

No.

Can there be an interesting (true) answer to a boring question?
