Filipinos can’t live without rice. Hence, rice is part of our culture. Every single Filipino family has rice in their pantry and is cooked during meals. I used to eat rice at least once or twice a day back in those days when I was still healthy (note: I am now diabetic that I was advised by my endocrinologist to do away with it for health reasons.). Once in a while, I would give in to my 'rice cravings'or to satisfy my longing for carbs, but only in very minimal amounts.

Part of the Filipino culture is our love for eating. A more particular tradition on food is the Filipino’s love for rice. Rice as the staple food in our country is the meal of most Filipinos three times a day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fried rice is a popular meal for breakfast at home, but it is also served at restaurants with different toppings. Steamed rice with a simple viand could make up for a meal. Delicacies are part of food tradition during town fiestas, and it is mostly made of rice.

Overall, I'd say that Boy Kanin was a total hit to us. Everything was fried to perfection, flavorful and very appetizing. Their meals had the right balance of flavor, not too salty nor bland. Sadly though, they no longer have vegetable based meals due to spoilage issues since this is a tropical country. Note that your dining experience would not be complete if you don't try any of their specialty rice and wash it down with their signature Salabat Ginger Tea. I swear, even if you're not exactly a fan of ginger, you will like this. I guess even kids might even like its taste because it's sweetened with honey. But it doesn't have that bitter after-taste we usually encounter with ginger tea. The ginger tea perfectly complements each dish. And get this, each time you purchase Boy Kanin's ginger tea, you are actually helping an entire community by giving them livelihood. That's because Boy Kanin's CEO, President and proprietor, Mr. Ronald Callao sources the ginger from a certain community and in the process allows them to make a living.
All in all, it was an awesome experience for our taste buds. I highly recommend Boy Kanin for their good quality Filipino dishes. And I assure you, it won't burn a hole in your pocket even if you treat an entire lot.
