More on the Philippines' Spaghetti

Ever since I was young, the McSpaghetti from McDonald's has been around. At this time, it is still one of the best sellers in our fast food culture. Even other competitors have their own version of spaghetti in their menu. Why is the spaghetti a big part of our fast food culture?

 

Looking through web posts and reactions about this favorite, it is sad to know that "cheap imitation" spaghetti wouldn't cut it for those who did not grow up with it. I guess with the Filipinos, spaghetti is something that has been around ever since and we are used to having it how it is made, regardless of what the original spaghetti could ever taste like. 

 

It is most popular during children's birthday parties, where they will often serve spaghetti and chicken together. I never really knew how that started. (I read that Filipino food history is poorly documented.) All I know is that kids love it for it has that sweet taste that works well with the (usually) just-fried, little-seasoning chicken.

 

Most people have probably never tasted real Italian spaghetti, as I have. (Or maybe I have, when I dined in one of the Italian restaurants available here, but how would I know if that was how they made it in Italy?) The only taste of spaghetti we really know is from the spaghetti of fast food chains. Or from homemade ones.

 

I am not sure how the spaghetti came to the Philippines. I read it was a Japanese influence (they were conquering here for a few years during WWII). I guess from there, the pasta with the sweet tomato sauce and sausages on top spread and was loved by the Filipino people.
