One of the most well-known Filipino dishes is the delectable Shrimp Gambas. It tastes as good as your eye can devour. The shrimps are sautéed in tomato sauce with chili, bell peppers and spicy elements. Many of the Philippine food establishments have this on their menu. This traditional cuisine originated from Spain; as Gambas is the Spanish term for prawns. Although Gambas pertains to prawns, many restaurants in the Philippines use medium to large sized shrimps. It is commonly served as an appetizer but many people likes to eat this with rice or over beer.
