    Sounds yummy! Is this related to the rice that comes with chicken inasal? Colombian/Brazilian rice also tastes good. I generally try to stick to plain white/brown rice in an attempt to stave off more sodium/fat. There aren’t a ton of healthy Filipino food options outside of sinigang and roasted barbecue/seafood, but plain rice is at least better than mixed in with other less healthy ingredients.

    • Think of it this way — if you eat more of the rice because it is already flavorful, you eat less of the fried and heavily seasoned meat or fish that the rice is often paired with. Which is better now? :)

      AS for Mang Inasal, I only ate there once, had plain white rice, I’ve no plans of ever eating there again, so, I’ll never have the chance to see what their yellow rice is to compare. :)

    I wonder if you’ve tried making cilantro rice. It pairs very well with grilled meat and fish. Chop some garlic, onions and cilantro. Saute in olive or vegetable oil. Add uncooked rice and stir for a few minutes. Add a 3/4 cup of meat broth for each 1/2 cup of rice. Cover and simmer in a covered pot over low medium heat until done. Stir rice when done and drizzle with a few more drops of olive oil and sea salt to taste. Enjoy!! Let me know if you like it ;) ~Sam

    • I came across that as “arroz verde”. It’s on my list. I’ve been wanting to make it for a long time but I’m the only cilantro lover in my family. I have to time it when I’m the only one home. Thanks! :)

        I think, you’ve hit the nail on the head with your “rice series”– the white rice, then the yellow rice, tapos the arroz verde… I think there will be a red rice, too, right? Thanks so much again Connie.

      • Yep, the red one is called Spanish rice. There is one in the archive but it’s not very basic. So, I’ll post the really basic recipe… :D

    I viewed the pictures on your blog before reading the blog’s article. Upon viewing the pictures, the first thing that came to mind is the Spanish Rice that goes with my favorite grilled Chicken Taco that I order at Mexican Restaurants.

    I’ve been searching Mexican Cookbooks on how to make this Spanish Rice so I can make it at home to accompany my home-made Tacos. I’ll definitely try this out.

    I put ground beef to it and it’s like java rice. I hope you can share with us, if you have, the recipe of kamameshi rice. I cook it but it doesn’t seem right. Thanks.
