When I arrived to live with my relatives here in the Philippines, the first thing I asked for was food.
So my grandpa who met us at the airport drove us to a local restaurant that specializes in selling Filipino food. I think it's weird to have a Filipino themed restaurant in the Philippines because every household is a competitor. Sell something different!
But anyway, I asked my Filipino granda for suggestions on what to order and he recommended
I try Sinigang. I asked him if he thinks I'd like it (he knows my preferences) and to my surprise, he said "No".
Ok. So I think it was weird that he would recommend me a food he knew I wouldn't like, but out of courtesy I ordered it anyway.
It wasn't that bad, but I didn't really enjoy it. So half-way through to the meal, he suggested
I try the Bagoong.
OMG. For those of you who don't know what Bagoong is, it's a salty Filipino sauce.
And it smells awful.
No disprespect to the Filipino culture, but you have to understand how a foreigner would react.
Here is a picture of the Bagoong.
So back to the story- I got blunt with my grandpa. I told him straight "Lo, you know I won't eat that!"
And he laughed and said "Eh gusto ko yang sawsawan na yan eh" (But I like that sauce).
Arrrgggg. So he recommend me food which he knew I wouldn't like, but he suggested them anyway because he loved them.
If you are going to recommend something, you have to think about their (your friends) preferences, not yours.
To make it simple- No matter how much you enjoyed that torture film, you should never recommend it to someone who doesn't like gore.
So that brings us to this review.
I personally like Triple Town. I love it.
But I don't recommend it.
