Every culture has its own unique take on barbecue. In the Philippines, the holy union of meat and fire is a meat-lovers' dream. Cooked on skewers and paired with some San Miguel beer, Filipino barbecue sets itself apart by slathering a 7-Up and banana ketchup-based barbecue sauce on slabs of pork and chicken. At Brooklyn's FOB, chef Armando Litiatco takes the fun of street food and combines it with the familiar flavors of his Filipino childhood. Sticky, tangy, and fall-off-the-bone tender, dishes like FOB's chicken inasal and grilled spare ribs are a must-try for barbecue fanatics everywhere.
