Filipino food has arrived at Investors Group Field
Filipino food has gone international when FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 was held lately at the Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, one of the six Canadian host cities.
Hot Rod Cooking a.k.a Rod E. Cantiveros got the opportunity to serve lumpia and siopao, to the delights of soccer fans who came and supported the players from their home countries.
“Oh, siopao, give me two,” a smiling Chinese fan donned in a Chinese flag during a half-time break of the game between China and New Zealand. “Oh, I love this lumpia, my Filipino neighbor introduced me to this food,” one american lady said. “Filipino food, mucho gusto,” an Ecuadorian said. And one Canadian friend said: “You’re trending, good food.”
The kiosk’s staff composed of “food loving Filipinos, aided with all smiles and sweet words to the fans”, introduced the Filipino food to the fans from the ten countries, from Groups A-B-C-D, namely, United States of America, Australia, Sweden, Nigeria, the Republic of China, New Zealand, Germany, Thailand, Japan and Ecuador. Mostly this was the first time to taste the Filipino food sampling.
After the FIFA (Federation Internationale Football Association), the Blue Bombers season has began and Hot Rod Cooking will at the Investors Group Field to serve Filipino food to the football fans from Hamilton, Toronto, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver, and to top them all when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will host the 103rd Grey Cup.
As so many fans asked for Pancit, a filipino noodle, Hot Rod management decided to include this popular noodle to the other Filipino food being served at the Investors Group Field.
With a steaming siopao or steamed buns filled with pork and chicken, plus the crunchy Lumpia Shangai or Spring rolls, and added with delectable pancit, and who among the sport fans will not try to relish the Filipino food, naturally, temptingly delicious!
