There's no question that Filipinos love their meat. In fact, a lot of the Philippines' most popular dishes are purely protein, like crispy pata and lechon. They're so loved here that a party isn't complete without either of them. Recently, online food encyclopedia Taste Atlas counted the two dishes among the World's Top 100 Dishes for 2019.
