Filipino Food 101 with Jo Koy | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Dec 5, 2017
  • Eating with Jo Koy is a lot like seeing his stand-up routine: loud, in your face, and filled with stories about his eccentric Filipino family. When it came time for Sean Evans to dive head first into the menu at Jeepney Filipino Gastropub in NYC, the choice for a dinner companion was a no-brainer. From staples like chicken adobo and arroz caldo, to now-legendary dishes like halo-halo and balut, Jo breaks down the Filipino food dos and don’ts as only he could. Will Sean convince Jo to give balut another shot, or will he swear off bird embryos for ever? Find out on an all new SITW.

    I eat balut. They should not scare the people about balut . It is rich in protein. Just don't eat a lot . Once week is ok.

    The Halo Halo, where's the Avocado? I'm Mexican we moved to Hawaii when I was like 10ys old, first time I seen someone eat avocado with sugar was Halo Halo, I was so grossed out. My wife god rest her soul was from the jungles of Thailand, so you know I've eaten some shit. Grasshoppers,ant eggs, but I HATE cilantro, I would starve to death before I eat cilantro. I've eaten BALUT didn't really care for it, but I would eat BALUT before I eat cilantro!

    I always find it hilarious whenever I see people get legitimately grossed out by balut. It's a prime after-drink snack here; if the alcohol hasn't knocked you out yet, your newly-acquired hypertension will.
    Gotta say, though, adobo really is overrated. Like what he said, it's really little more than vinegared meat. You want a dish that truly embodies the Pinoy spirit? Dig into a big bowl of sinigang. You just take the ingredients, dump them in a pot, then boil them to shit. No fuss, no muss; kind of like the no nonsense practicality we've honed over the centuries. The flavor of a good sinigang is that has a subtle sourness that still has a strong "bite," much like the Filipino fighting spirit that knows how to bend just enough until it needs to spring back up at the right moment.
    Sinigang's where's it at.

    Tapsilog, pork tasino, chicken adobo, lumpia, pancit, longenesa, barboy luchen, green mango with baguong and rice, patis, banana ketchup............. The list is almost endless - the BBQ milkfish with calamantsi and ginger sauce........ Even just the garlic fried rice with Dais,
    Phillipino Food is the best!
    (Except Balut - tried it once in Pasay City and NEVER AGAIN!)

    That's really good...! I remembered I invited our friends on my husband's Birthday , I cooked this combined Chicken & Pork Adobo , Pancit Canton & Lumpia Shanghai w/ my own Filipino version..., Wow, our German friends really loved it. Our desserts are Biko, a glutinous rice w/ Coconut milk & brown sugar. I did not used so many sugar on it bec. they don't like a lot of sweet's so much & Leche Plan too...., they loved it. actually that's just a simple dishes what I'd made. I'd like Kare-kare, Pochero, Pork menudo, Caldereta & many more but it's a lot of work to do, maybe someday, I'll try it. ......hahaha. I miss Filipinos Foods.

    The trick with Balut is just don't chew. Once you chew down and feel the bone you're guaranteed to gag. Except for that one uncle in the family that has no tastebuds at all. Pretty much any philo will know what I'm talking about😂. Good show though! Loved seeing my favourite dishes getting some clout🔥👌
