I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.
Everyone knows 7-Eleven as the popular international chain of convenience stores that offer a wide range of products, including value meals. In the Philippines, the value meals are called "busog meals," and there are three types: pork giniling, pork sisig, and tuna omelette.
