What is WowSarap?

Wow! Sarap… is about good food that Filipinos love to eat. And it’s also about Filipino or Filipino-style food that non-Filipinos have enjoyed over the years.

Wow! Sarap… is, in fact, about food — good food.

It is thus not surprising that in addition to the many recipes of authentic and traditional Filipino dishes, Wow! Sarap… includes recipes of non-Filipino dishes like “satay,” “kebabs,” “siopao” and many more similar recipes. Yes, the names may be non-Filipino, but these recipes definitely and undeniably bring forth that tastiness that Filipino dishes are well known for.

Wow? Of course, it means “smashing” or “knockout.” It is an expression of admiration or astonishment.

“Sarap”? It is a Tagalog word meaning: tasty, delicious, delectable, lip-smacking, luscious, appetizing. Or, simply “yummy.”
