Top 10 All Time Filipino Favourite Noche Buena Recipes
Top 3-1 (More Desserts and More Pork)
3 . Fruit Salad – Who said Filipinos don’t have salads in their diets? To prove to you here is another one, this time as a dessert. Usually made of fruit cocktail in cans, tapioca pearls, nata de coco, and young coconut strips in a cream condensed milk sauce. The prefect dessert to end a Christmas Eve supper.

2 . Quezo de Bola – The least favourite of the bunch but almost all dining table back home will serve this. Basically a big round Edam cheese coated with red paraffin wax, it’s more of a status symbol I guess rather than a food item that everyone can enjoy.

1 . Ham – Finally a table will not be complete without this pineapple juice glazed ham, like the quezo de bola there will be lots of leftover for this one so its usually enjoyed in the Christmas morning sandwiched in a freshly cooked pandesal with some slices of Quezo de Bola. Note if you want this to be consumed faster than normal, get the ones with lots of fat, Filipinos love it.
