Do you have your favorite Filipino food? There may be a Latino food that's similar to it and may even have the same name. Jo Koy visits mitú, a digital media company that brings a Latino POV to mainstream entertainment to try Filipino dishes with host, Alejandro Perez. They swap dishes and try each other's version. Alejandro gives his feedback on Filipino dishes and Jo Koy with Latino dishes.
The two talk about the similarities and where the dishes are usually seen. They kick off with champorado which are very similar, while the polvoron and polvorones differ in texture and shape. Lastly, they try each culture's version of leche flan. The Filipino version of the flan didn't quite look like its usual, but more of a brûlée. The crossover between the two cultures just shows how connected we are. Check out the full video below!
