  1. KARE-KARE: This is the tradition oxtail and peanut stew dish that is very much appreciated and missed by the Filipinos. The stew contains peanut butter or roasted peanuts along with vegetables including cabbage, eggplant and green beans. Apart from that this can be edited by switching oxtail with beef meat as well. The best place to try KARE-KARE is in the Pinoy Restaurant in Batha.
  2. SIGSIG: This is another Filipino dish that is served with a glass of beer in the Philippines, but here it can simply be enjoyed with a cold glass of Coke. This dish is originally made from part of pig and liver but since pork is Haram in Saudi Arabia, chicken or beef is used. The best place to order this or enjoy from is the Blue Ribbon Restaurant situated in Sulaimenia.
  3. PANCIT: This noodle style dish that was originally adopted from the Chinese seems to be very much the talk of the town everywhere! These noodles do not have a particular flavor and every restaurant has its own variation. Again make your way to Pinoy Restaurant in Batha.
  4. SINIGANG: This dish best served at Goodah Soo restaurant in Suleimania is a soup that consists of meat and vegetables in a broth.
  5. CHICKEN BARBECUE: This isn’t a Filipino dish but well appreciated by the crowd at Pasalubong in Batha.
