- Helga Krapf"I don’t know why, pero mahilig talaga ako sa [pineapple]," says Helga Krapf. "Unlike yung iba, watermelon, ganyan. I guess, ano. Halo-halo, eh. Pparang madami ako gustong food na Filipino din, ganun. Pero hindi ako masyadong ma-exotic. Balot, never ko pang na-try. Ayun, pero ano naman ako, I eat what I want."

- Eula Caballero"I'm a foodie," says the Cassandra: Warrior Angel star. "I can't say what my favorite food is." When asked to name cuisines, though, she is quick to list her faves. "I like Japanese, Portuguese food. Least of my favorites are Chinese and Italian."
But, she says, she does have a go-to dish. "Pero siguro, okay, I have a favorite food that I always order," she says, then laughs. "Para namang napaka-special nitong sasabihin ko--beef curry lang pala."

- JC de Vera"Siyempre, hindi mawawala 'yung Filipino food. 'Pag nag-pig out, Filipino food--ibang klase 'yan. Next, Korean and Japanese talaga."
The actor also like to cook. "Pinakamadaling lutuin talaga is adobo. Kayang kaya kong gawin 'yun! Next, any kind of steak. Beef steak, chicken steak, liver steak, mga ganun. Meron akong sariling experimental recipe. Mostly puro mga homecooking lang."

- Morissette AmonActress Morissette Amon is a native of Cebu and loves provincial delicacies. "Of course, the well-known is 'yung lechon namin. There's also masareal, bar siya na parang milk and other things--basta, masarap! It's a dessert, but it can be a snack din since it's not too heavy. And dried mangoes! And mangoes themselves, din. Miss ko tuloy ang Cebu!
"My mom cooks Cebu food," she continues. "She makes masareal, so it's homemade for me. Of course, it has a different feel kasi it's from my hometown. It's close to my heart."
