Salty and Sweet are typical of Pinoy tastes, that's why diabetes and hypertension abounds in Pinoy communities/enclaves. I remembered one time we went to this Pinoy restaurant and my aunt commented that the chef "Americanized" the chicken adobo and bistek because they were lacking the salty taste to it.

I like Fiilipino cusine...but you have to promote it more for it to be a world cusine. I have only seen a hand full of Filipino restaurants in LA only one or two look nice. This in spite of the 100's of thousands of filipinos in Los Angeles.

Part of the reason too is that most Pinoys are good/excellent cooks and can replicate these dishes at home, also the frugal side of Pinoys comes into play, why go out to eat the same thing when you can make it yourself in the comforts of your own kitchen.

I would have to agree with this. Philippine cuisine quite lacks presentation. But I wonder why Carribean and Jamaican cuisine is gaining following when the presentation is also not as palatable. You know ox tail stew, goat stew, beef patties.

In New York, I'm not sure if you can count Cendrillon as a Filipino fine dining restaurant, it might still be owned by a Pinoy couple.

Back to the question: Is Filipino food a world cuisine?

Sure it is, we are part of the world. Bulalo, Sisig, Kare-Kare, Kinilaw na kambing, Batchoy, Hototay, Lumpiang Sariwa, Sotanghon, Luglug, Laing, Azucena, Pinadapang baka...etc, I'm sure some foreigners must have tried them. I can not guarantee that they would like the flavor but at least they know that we have our own local dishes.
To be honest when I was in the US, I rarely go to Filipino restaurants except if my cousins there bring me to one usually at night. When I was in NY I usually had NY style pizza and Philly cheesesteaks. You can get a nice pizza here in HK but you can't get those Philly cheesesteaks.

I don't blame you for not experiencing the Pinoy food shops here in the US. Some are really not to the taste of even our own Filipinos alike.
But so far, Goldilocks and DJ's Bibingkahan brought out the real Pinoy in us when we eat at their locations.

There is really no need to have the Pinoy restaurants to comform into fine dining that will suit foreigners, it is what we are, casual, happy or rowdy when it comes to eating in places within our boundaries.
Just as what people says "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" - so we do the same, we become Romanians.... hehehe!

Seriously, I have brought a lot of Americans friends and other nationalities in our Pinoy restos when I was still in LA, most of them love the food and the ambience but some have a hard time and it took them awhile to adjust to some native dish with bagoong or patis.

Jollibee lang ata ang maraming complaints talaga from Pinoys and foreigners.

^ Also we serve fish with heads and skin, so they don't like that.

That's why I did not add those on my list as Pinoy food, but we have some variations of those that we can call our own.

Just in Flickr alone has a lot of photos of different Lumpia's Pinoy style.

Even our puto has some Asian counterpart except our sapin-sapin.

...

puto.... hehehe! I mean it in a good way..

pinoy food is mostly salty and bitter. boiled with msg or sauteed garlic, onion, tomato, that's it . No spice, with exception of bicol food maybe. Mainstream have gotten used to foods with lots of spices to hide the aroma and taste of fishy smell. that is exactly what we like the fishy taste. The classic spicy sweet and sour foods ,curryof SE asians is what mainstream associates with asian food.
Our food is more islander food. I don't think dinuguan ,pinapaitan, and all other innards consisting foods will catch on anytime soon other than to a few brave souls.
