Pork Adobo for me is the best food to cook in a birthday party, especially if your from Asian region. Here in Philippines, pork adobo is the most common food that is always present in birthday celebration. You can try also roasted chicken with garlic, along with the pork adobo. Its a good mixed in a birthday party. Pork adobo & Roasted chicken the food that you must try to cook. I hope I was able to help you.
Have a great birthday celebration!!!
August 31, 2017, 8:45 am
Wow Pork Adobo i love it so much. This is one of my favorite food every birthday celebration. This is one of the best Filipino food that i really miss during my stay in our country. No wonder why foreigners also loves Adobo. I also miss the Sinigang dish. I am really proud i was born their where lots of delicious foods were cooked for so many years.
September 25, 2017, 12:00 pm
Wow pork adobo is so famouse in my country and even foreign countries will also love to like it and I am thankful that I can cook that.

Here in the Philippines we usually cook the what we called "pancit bihon or canton" or the "Filipino-style stir fried noodles" because here they believe that it is cook and serve during birthday to have a long live. It is a other version of spaghetti. It is cooked Rice noodles with Carrots, Cabbage ,onion, Soy sauce, fishballs. It is also like the filipino version of a Padthai of Thai cuisine. We also have a what we called the "Puto"
is a type of steamed rice cake usually served as snack or as accompaniment to savory dishes such as dinuguan or pancit in Philippine cuisine and believed to be derived from Indian puttu of Kerala origin.
August 31, 2017, 8:50 am
I agree with you bro. I am also a filipino and I know this. We filipinos always loves to celebrate birthday with our relatives and friends we celebrate with world class filipino foods that we love to eat.
September 1, 2017, 3:35 am
Totally agree! I think we got this belief from the Chinese culture. Pasta or noodles are always present in a typical Filipino birthday celebration. If the birthday celebrant is a kid, you'll never fail to see hotdog on a stick with marshmallows on top. In addition, ice cream and cake is always present. I also like seafood paella or beef caldera on the list. I can't wait to celebrate my birthday.

For me finger foods would be great if your're having a party foods such as chicken wings , fries and barbecue because they go great with beers or other alchoholic drinks. (a party can't be alchohol) lol
but if you're having more of a formal dinner party a main dish like roasted turkey or steak with some sides then wine for drinks would be more apropriate. it has more of a cozy casual party vibe.
and btw happy birthday to your brother
August 31, 2017, 9:07 am
Yes, I second that. For me, small snacking with beer and drinks is best for celebrations. Maybe some peanuts and nuts, some snacks and of course plenty of beer haha. But regardless of that, I think that the individual tastes of the person in question should be taken into account.
August 31, 2017, 10:01 am
I second demotion, too!Finger foods would be great. Because a party is also a mix of having fun with people not just about the food. Lots of varieties would be good, too since you are not really that sure to what kind of foods they would want to eat. You don't want to have an emergency while celebrating, right.
August 31, 2017, 10:26 am
In my country,a celebration is never complete without the usual jollof rice.So any birthday this food in attendance is no birthday party.So jollof rice with enough meats and drinks will do.
August 31, 2017, 9:28 am
Spaghetti! My all time favorite. You may find it weird but I also love to have siomai during my birthday. I love fried chicken and also.love to have ice cream. I may be old for these foods but I love ating these kind of foods.
August 31, 2017, 9:46 am
We do the same thing here. We love to celebrate having a spaghetti, but sometimes I do a lot of questions, why we serve those foods, as common food, for especial occasions. I remember when I was still 5 years old. When I asked my mother to cook a food, like spaghetti, she refuse to do so. Because we don't have money to afford such things.
It was an ideal thing to have spaghetti foods, but I didn't experienced in my whole life, even I become now an adult. Now, only one thing I wish is that, my son would have an especial food, for every birthday he
celebrate. I don't wish, for myself anymore, I just wanted happiness, for my family. Though, I can't deny it was my very favorite food.
September 6, 2017, 8:54 am
As a Filipino every birthday we use to celebrate there's always a so called "pancit" in the table.We believe having pancit gives long life to the celebrant.
August 31, 2017, 9:46 am
for me is lasagna, lasagna in every birthday celebration taste so good, specially if it is well made with lots of cheese and with correct ingredients it will be a fun celebration. way back 2015 my mother cook a lasagna during my father's birthday and all of us agreed that my mom is one of the best lasagna maker in the world.
August 31, 2017, 10:27 am
I second this, especially if you're having a party and feeding a lot of people! Lasagna is delicious, and it's easy to make a lot of it. It's also something you can adapt to people's food preferences; for example, you can make a "white" version if you don't like red sauce, or a vegetarian version. It's also not very hard to make, and it's even easier if you use the kind of noodles that don't need to be pre-cooked.
To go with it, I would suggest salad and garlic bread.
August 31, 2017, 12:22 pm
You have to cook something easy, and good enough for a bunch of people. At birthdays we usually cook mexican fajitas, you can buy almost everything ready to eat like tortillas, beans, milk cream, cheese and chili with meat. You just serve all in the table and people can build they're own fajitas the way they like them. Also, is not so expensive and if you want to add an extra snack, just put a big bowl of nachos and cheese sauce before dinner, cold Coke and beers and that's it.
August 31, 2017, 10:32 am
Mexican fajitas! That sounds so yummy. How does it taste like?
September 12, 2017, 3:55 pm
This is just delicious! Basically it depends on what you put on the meat when you cook it, usually I just use some garlic, onion and salt. Chop it in large strings, take them to a hot oiled pan, and let them cook. You can add some black pepper too. The basic way to eat them is to grab a tortilla, put some milk cream, black beans, pico de gallo (diced tomato and onion), shredded cheese, and meat on top, roll it up and eat it. It's super easy and everybody can serve it with whatever they like. Highly recommended.
September 20, 2017, 2:31 am
I usually cook Pansit whenever there are Birthday celebrations. Pansit is actually a Chinese dish which symbolizes long life and good health and I believe this are the two things we wanted our celebrants to have. Pansit is very convenient to cook and I'm pretty sure that you will enjoy serving it to your family and friends.
August 31, 2017, 10:42 am
I think id go with chicken roasted, fried, or grilled for me is best at celebration anything. Plus add some pork dishes like roasted pork, wow!, beef stew! Hotdogs and marshmallow. But dont forget the cake amd gifts.
August 31, 2017, 10:55 am
I would go to my all time favorite Menudo. It is a food here in Philippines. It is a pork braised in red tomatoes sauce and with sliced hotdogs with some potatoes and carrots on it, if you like you can add some cheese with it, its really nice food for me. It is I always forward to look for when im in the birthday party with my friends. LOL, you should try this, you're not going to regret it.
August 31, 2017, 12:00 pm
I don't know what to suggest since I don't have idea of your origin. Which country do you live?. Perhaps I may suggest food to cook but maybe its not possible in your area. As what you have said you want to prepare food for your brother's birthday. Well this is my piece of advice, find out what's your brother's favorite food. You have also to consider your budget because there are some expensive ingredients. Plan it well, I suggest to celebrate it during snack time around 3 o'clock in the afternoon so you will only just prepare cheap but delicious snacks.
August 31, 2017, 12:36 pm
Don't cook. It's more suitable to buy the food rather than to cook it. It will consume most of your time preparing instead of using it for more preferable situations such as the party it self. Maybe if you still insist of cooking, will preparing a decent meal depends on whose going to eat the food. For starters, make a nice soup. Followed up by the main course, a roasted chicken or beef sounds nice. Then a well prepared dessert or the homemade cake will do.
August 31, 2017, 1:04 pm
I only celebrate alone. Because, I don't have enough money to invite my friend, and my relatives. I had once forget my birthday, and only my mother remember about it. It's so funny that, when I don't expected someone to surprise me on my birth day. I always wanted someone greet me, the way others celebrate it happily. I always envy those people, and their celebrations.
I only go outside to buy food, for myself. only those day that, I could treat myself in my own budget. Though, I don't feel lonely, when I do such things. Because, it is common thing to me, to do such things.
August 31, 2017, 1:39 pm
If it is for your brother's birthday I have the perfect food to cook, PIZZA. Who doesn't love pizza?. It is perfect for every occasion and I know everyone will love it. You can search on the internet or In books for new recipes so you can cook something different than the classic pepperoni pizza. Also, you can personalize and decorate the pizzas as you like. It all depends on your creativity and your capacity to cook. If you like to cook and you cook very good this is going to be a success I promise you. It is not that difficult. If you think that making the pizza dough it is not that easy, you can buy the dough you only will need to do is decorate them and then put them on the horn.
August 31, 2017, 2:18 pm
Someone suggested Pork Adobo above and I have to say it is a great thing to have for a birthday party. Of course, it will depend on what your brother likes and whether or not you can eat pork. But if you can then Pork Adobo is a great option to have at a birthday party. I only had it recently for the first time and I am in love with it. I have always been a huge pork fan so it was no surprise really that I liked Pork Adobo. It's not an extremely difficult dish to make either.
August 31, 2017, 2:22 pm
Here in Nigeria, the best meal to cook is jollof rice. We call it "party jollof" because of its unique taste.
If you are the person serving the food you could make enemies just from skipping a person. Yes that's how much we love party jollof. It is best served with meat, mostly beef and chicken.
Also in a more elaborate setting It is best to serve fried rice and chicken. We love rice like that.
August 31, 2017, 2:27 pm
I guess you'll have to ask the birthday celebrant. After all, it's his/her day and that's the main reason for the celebration.
As far as my favorite food for a birthday celebration, it's always been pasta combined with a home cooked chicken dish instead of some fancy restaurant food that you can buy anytime.
August 31, 2017, 2:39 pm
Besides obviously baking a cake (who doesn't like cake?) you could prepare something Italian because everyone loves italian cuisine. I think my favorite dish would be lasagne and it shouldn't be difficult to make. If not lasagne then maybe a homemade pizza with toppings your brother likes.
August 31, 2017, 3:57 pm
Well, i don't celebrate birthdays, and i don't think i would celebrate one in the near future, but if the unexpected happens, then it will actually be the normal status quo, the cake. I don't really think i will ever cook for a birthday celebration, why should cook or waste the few resources, as if i won't celebrate another one.
But if i would want to do something big, i will buy some snacks and soft drinks, nothing else.
August 31, 2017, 4:45 pm
For someones birthday I usually order a bunch of pizzas or take them out to eat. I don't get cooking for someone on their birthday. Maybe it's just a first world thing, but birthdays to me are a time to take a person out on the town and celebrate. Grabbing some grub at a nice restaurant or bar and grill, before having a few drinks or before taking in a movie is part of the festivities.
August 31, 2017, 5:38 pm
If you have a lot of people that will attend your brothers birthday I suggest cooking food that can cater the quantity its cheaper that way. But if you're going to celebrate with your brother and a couple or two of your friends then I suggest going out instead. It'll save you from cleaning the house and the dishes. I hope that helps.
August 31, 2017, 6:31 pm
I think jollof rice and fried meat is the best meal for birthdays because it's easy to prepare and majority of the people out there don't have any problem eating rice, they enjoy eating it very well.
it's a meal that can't easily be wasted and it's not a messy food. There are some food that once it's not eaten well makes the whole place look messy. So I think jollof rice is the best.
August 31, 2017, 7:57 pm
Hi patri, Actully i dont know what i should suggest on you because i dont know if you are Filipino same me. But any way i will suggest food that can be eaten international. You can add on your dish the alfredo fettucine, it is serve with white sauce and fettucine pasta. Roasted chicken, just marinated the chicken in BBQ sauce and oister sauce put also some piece of star anise all night before roasting it. And also for dessert you can make your own graham mango float.
August 31, 2017, 8:44 pm
Spaghetti! My all time favorite. You may find it weird but I also love to have siomai during my birthday. I love fried chicken and also.love to have ice cream. I also add Pizza and chinese food as well.
August 31, 2017, 9:59 pm
Your question depends on the type of food that is quite popular and generally being eaten by many in your community. this is because the type of food that we eat here in Nigeria, for instance, may not be cool for people living in your country and suggesting that type of food for those in your country may result in people eating a food that will end up as food poison in their stomach. so, consider a situation whereby your friends came to your party and end up eating food that will cause stomach upset to them. I don't think you may like that type of situation.
However, if you need my advice on the type of food to cook on your brother's birthday, I will suggest you go for any light food that is popular in your locality and does not forget to make snacks as well for people that will not be fine with eating a cooked food. Like in Nigeria where I reside, We use cooked jollof rice in every big event that we organize with snacks like chim chim to add with soft drinks to cap it all.
So, the choice is yours on which food is widely being eaten in your area. also, try and make the ingredients used in cooking the food moderate considering people's choices.
August 31, 2017, 10:53 pm
Smoked or grilled pork belly
would suffice the protein cravings of the visitors. Just match it with appropriate amount of seasoning mix and butter and the celebration is solved. If you don't want lean meat,
smoked or microwaved chicken or turkey
can serve the same purpose. Surely, the non-vegan friends of your brother will drool over these dishes.
August 31, 2017, 11:09 pm
Im from the philippines and for me, the best food to cook when there is a birthday is pancit. It is very common for the filipino's to cook this food when there a birthday. If you are pinoy you would love eating this. It consist of bihon or canton, pork or chicken, soy sauce, carrots fishball and many more, just search the recipe on google, Hehe.
September 1, 2017, 2:32 am
The best food to cook during birthday celebration is none other than spaghetti, hot dog with marsh mallow on the stick and fried chicken. This is just among the easy food to cook during birthday celebration and what kids most love to eat during birthdays.
September 1, 2017, 3:38 am
Spaghetti and Palabok! Yummy! I like spaghetti very much especially if it was cooked by my mom. I also like puto because it completes my birthday. For spaghetti, just search for sweet spaghetti because that's the one children most like. In palabok, I recommend that you should add crispy prok skin (chicharon in Filipino), egg and squid to make it special. For puto, just add cheese and then poof! Your birthday is perfect!
September 1, 2017, 5:02 am
Spaghetti, pansit, menudo and lumpiang shanghai are always present on our table during birthday celebrations. Spaghetti, the all time favorite of kids and us adults, too. Menudo and shanghai which is a very good partner to rice.
And lastly, pansit either canton or bihon will always be the one of the best food to cook on birthday celebrations.
September 1, 2017, 6:13 am
For a birthday celebration just order dozens of pizzas and plenty of beer. That party would be so dope. Every time I go to birthday parties most of it have pizzas. It's very easy to have because you'll just need to order it then wait for it to arrive and also it's not that expensive every celebrant would afford it because it's cheap. The other benefit of it is saving time and effort to cook.
September 1, 2017, 6:21 am
The best food to cook for a birthday in my opinion is still spaghetti. It's a staple. Nothing beats my mom's spaghetti. Spaghetti just never gets old and I don't get tired eating eat. A birthday wouldn't be the same without it. Imagine just having cake and ice cream for your celebration. It just doesn't seem complete.
September 1, 2017, 7:49 am
Well, depending on how old he is you can do different kinds of food. Kids love stuff like sandwiches, sweets and so on, while adults are different. However there are some stuff that everyone loves such as : pizza, burgers, etc. You should play it safe and order some food like pizza if you want to celebrate at your home. If you want a more official celebration then you can always go to a restaurant and order some food there.
September 1, 2017, 8:19 am
My question is, how old is your brother? Is it going to be a children's party? Or is it the other way around? I guess it's pretty simple if it's going to be a children's party. Consider what the children usually like such as hot dogs and marshmallows on sticks, Spaghetti, fruit salad, fried chicken and don't forget about the birthday cake to be blown by the celebrant along with the other children at his back! LOL As for ordinary birthday parties, Sushi rolls, Mac and Cheese, veggie dips and pizza would also be good ideas. Don't forget about booze! My birthday is also coming in a few days and I'm still thinking about if I'm going to celebrate it or not. I don't wanna get old so I may just pass. No kidding! I'll just probably be thanking my parents for bringing me into this world. Without them, I wouldn't be here. Perhaps we could just have a simple dinner together with my husband, daughter and my little girl.
September 1, 2017, 10:40 am
For me the best food to cook for birthday celebration is spaghetti. This dish is actually very popular here in the Philippines. It's not just that but we also have what we call pancit. But what filipinos are most up to with this kind of celebration is spaghetti especially if it is a children's party. Almost every where you can find this food. It is very good especially when it comes to the spaghetti sauce. It's best paired with chicken or a sandwich.
September 1, 2017, 11:51 am
As a filipino, birthdays are not complete without having a dish with pancit( long rice noodle) for long life. Or anything that has long noodle or pasta like spaghetti. Then friend chicken, menudo ( dish with pork, potato, carrots and pork liver with tomato sauce), ice cream and cake. As long as we have this food you can call it a really good birthday party.
these are the common filipino dishes you can find in birthday party cause they are so easy to prepare and does not cost too much.
September 1, 2017, 12:19 pm
Depends on who or what ages are the celebrant, if its a kid spaghetti and hotdogs on stick with marshmallow is best for kids.Fried chicken and a spring roll is the best and simple to prepare.Cook some pork dish or beef dish for meal, just cook only the best and their favorite that the simple and very easy to do
September 1, 2017, 1:18 pm
There are lots of food that you can prepare like Filipino traditional food. However, we can eat that even without birthdays or holiday season since it's traditional Filipino dishes. Yes sure, a lot easier to prepare and less expensive, but not so exciting. Why not be creative and do some online research like you tube. If your brother likes Korean then you can add up your menus such as Korean Sushi or Japanese tempura. There are many Korean stores available to buy like nori sheets, crab sticks and sesame oil for the main ingredients. Don't forget the rice, of course, could be Japanese rice or if not available in your area just try to look for not so "sticky" rice, a no-no to the ordinary brand. With the Tempura, fresh medium size shrimps will do simply marinate with salt and pepper then do the FEB process (flour, egg and bread crumbs) and fry, There you go hopefully you will consider this suggestion.
September 1, 2017, 10:34 pm
Growing up as Asian, Noodles should be always considered on birthdays celebration. We always have birthday longevity noodles on birthdays. Basically these are noodles that are really long. We can also have them stir-fried. Eating delicacies with noodles symbolizes long life so I guess this is the best food to have on birthdays especially for Filipinos and Koreans.
September 2, 2017, 12:22 am
I would say the best food to cook in birthday celebration is Lechon! Here in Philippines, Lechon is very popular native dish where in you will grill manually the whole pig! Lechon is very delicious and it is one recommended to try here in my home country.
September 2, 2017, 5:35 am
I am from La Loma, so Lechon capital of the Philippines. Usually a lot of people. Buy lechon for Christmas and New Year, but they also buy lechon for birthdays
September 12, 2017, 4:02 pm
In my opinion, a barbecue is the perfect solution to cooking for a gathering of people. Rather than slaving away in a kitchen for your guests, you get to be outside and share the cooking experience with everyone. All of your guests can be involved in one way or another, and it's just more of a social experience than cooking everything in a kitchen and then serving it up for dinner. Of course this implies that the weather permits. It isn't exactly as easy to barbecue during the winter.
September 2, 2017, 6:16 am
The best food to cook for birthday celebration is anything that is pasta. Pasta like spaghetti, carbonara or baked macaroni will do. It is for children who will attend the party and also for parents and other visitors. You can cook also fried chickens and you can also make toasted bread as the partner of pasta.
September 2, 2017, 7:55 am
Spaghetti is the best food you can cook on your birthday. You can eat this food whether you’re rich or poor, this food can make any birthday awesome. You can add bunch of things like you can put mushrooms or you can just add ketchup to make it sweet, easy right?
September 2, 2017, 8:20 am
Spaghetti! Delicious and something to be appreciated of. Anywhere and any celebrations, Spaghetti is the one that you can see on the table. Partner with hotdogs and bread makes it more tasty as you eat and celebrate with your friends, talk about the good memories of having time to hangout, for now work is draining my time for hangouts. And also with beverages
September 2, 2017, 8:37 am
Best cooked food for birthday celebration here in my country is Pancit Bihon and rice cake! It taste so good and for "longer life" as we quote. What is
anyway? For non-Filipino ,it is a Filipino noodle dish and is a staple second to rice. This was brought by the chinese and was localized since then. This Pancit Bihon Recipe uses “Bihon” or rice sticks mixed with pork, chicken, and vegetables. This dish is always served during Fiesta, birthday parties, and other special occasions.
September 2, 2017, 11:33 am
Spagetti is the best food to cook for a birthday celebration. Even if this food is originally comes from Italy,in my country which is Philippines, when someone sees you eating spagetti they asked you "whose have birthday" so for me the only food that should not be replaced in the birthday party is the spagetti.
September 2, 2017, 12:31 pm
I think each country has its own favorite food that has been served in birthday parties. In Philippines the common food that has been cooked for the parties is the Spaghetti. Filipinos have superstitious belief that during the birthday, you should have Spaghetti, because pasta is long and it believes that it will make your life longer. Aside from that its is easy to be cooked.
September 2, 2017, 2:55 pm
For me the best food too cook during birthday celebration is Fried Chicken, it's very classic yet very tasteful. And considered to be most favored by those who are attending the celebration.
September 3, 2017, 3:29 am
I grew up in a multicultural country and we usually cook different types of dishes for birthday parties. Some of the things that we usually prepare over here are fried rice or noodles, barbecue, biryani, fried chicken with chips and salads, pizza and pasta. I really like those parties as I can eat those dishes with great relish.
September 3, 2017, 3:46 am
The best food to cook for me during birthday is spaghetti. Why? because we all know that spaghetti is a type of food that produce happiness by just watching it. Ever since we are a kid we have been able to eat spaghetti especially in our birthday. In our country here in the Philippines we believe that this type of food causes your life to be longer. As we watch spaghetti it is made of noodles which is long. That's why when you eat this type of food it gives you long lasting life.
September 3, 2017, 6:00 am
For birthday celebration, I prefer carbonara, lechon (pork), fried chicken, menudo. Those are the menu that we should have on birthdays. You can add your specialty if have one. What's best is to make sure that all of your guesses will enjoy it. There are some guesses who is picky or diet-conscious so you have to be considerate.
September 3, 2017, 12:04 pm
The best food to cook for a birthday is Pizza, all love Pizza. The ingredients are not that expensive, it is easy to cook and it takes little time, besides there will be no mess on the table at the end, and from what I know there are no people who do not like pizza.
When you cook another dish, there is always someone who does not eat it, so, cooking or ordering a pizza is the best method to save the day!
September 4, 2017, 6:47 am
For me i think spaghetti is the number one choice for birthday parties aside from cakes. You should try making some macaroni salads, pizza and buying some ice cream too. Overall you should his friends for some advice on what to prepare so you won't have any problem.
September 4, 2017, 9:57 am
For me, it would be "pancit bihon" in the Filipino language. It's a white small thin pasta and some ingredients are cabbage, carrots, beans and you can also put chicken or pork. It's a very delicious food here the Philippines. Every celebrations or holiday we always cook "pancit bihon". you can spread it on your bread or eat this along. Most of the Filipino used to cook it because it's easy to cook and we have a saying if we cook pancit bihon in your birthday you'll have a long life.
September 4, 2017, 3:22 pm
Just cook your favorite food! It's your day so you have to satisfy yourself not only the guests that you are expecting. If you love pasta, then go for lasagna, spaghetti, mac n' cheese, etc. If you love Asian food then go for noodles, rice, dimsum, etc..
For me, just make the ones you love to eat and don't stress your self in thinking about what other people might think about what you serve on the table.
September 4, 2017, 4:20 pm
I like your suggestion. We have to be practical in doing what we want. We have to be practical in deciding what to cook, just cook what we want and crave. Always have in mind that there are children in a birthday party so get ready to serve hotdogs, spaghetti, and cake!
Good luck for your celebration.
September 12, 2017, 10:47 pm
It depends on who is the birthday celebrant, if it is kids birthday usually spaghetti, hotdogs in stick with marshmallow, fried chicken, cup cakes and any finger foods that kids would enjoy to eat. For adult usually rice cakes, macaroni salad and different dishes.
September 4, 2017, 10:44 pm
For me Lechon Baboy is the best food to cook for birthday celebration. Lechon baboy is a rousted pig over charcoal which is popular to contries like Philippines, Cuba, Spain and other countries. The process of cooking where the pig is put on a rod so that it will help the people to rotate the pig on charcoal that will make the skin of the pig to be crispy which is very delicious and satisfying meal.
September 6, 2017, 6:00 am
Pasta, burger and fries all the way for me! For me, without those three, a party isn't a real party. I could be quite biased about this since these are actually my favorite snacks. Then again, I think it really depends on your culture and what people in your place would usually serve during parties. The age of your brother's visitors should also be considered, by that I mean if he's still a child, adolescent or young adult.
September 7, 2017, 9:04 am
Party foods are just a delight to have. However, when it's your turn to prepare, you suddenly cringe at the thought of putting up a whole entree of meals for your guests. As a mother who prepares these stuffs more often that not, Here are my suggestions. First, think of the general age group you will be serving. if it's a children's party, load your party food list with child-friendly dishes c=because you don't want a hungry kid at the party. Go with the traditional spaghetti and burgers and some grilled hotdogs for them. also provide sweet treats like ice cream and small cakes too. If you are planning for more of the age you are in, try to list foods that are in your liking and the general guests. These always include pasta, either your traditional spaghetti, or lasagna or pesto dish, some finger foods such as taco cups or mini pizza. Then add some grilled meat, like chicken or beef or pork. For the dessert, you can prepare jello shots for adults or plain jellos for kids. Some baked pastries or ice cream. Next step, arrange them properly. Arrange the food nicely lined up in a table and separate the desserts. If possible, place them in a different table next to the drinks so that your main serving table won't be crowded when guests line up for food. And lastly, enjoy your party. there can always be some missteps during the preparation but don't lose in mind that the reason for a party is to enjoy.

Pancit a native food usually served during birthday in Philippines. The main ingredient is the noodles being called bihon or noodles made from rice flour. Added with soysouce, pork and chicken plus vegetables like cabbage, carrots, and celery plus black pepper. Every celebrations usually being served by this as a sign of long life. This native food is actually influenced from Chinese immigrants in the country.

I also like pansit. There is also a pansit canton which is very delicious. It can be added to the main dishes to have more choices for the guest at a birthday party. It is a heavy dish that can actually make you already full.

For me a birthday celebration is not a celebration with out a spaghetti and cake on the table. I think its not fun at all if you don't indulge on your favorite food or other things that make you happy if you do not have them on your birthday. And yeah I particularly want spaghetti be it cooked for me or cooked by me on my birthday even if I don't have a party. Who needs a party if your past your teens lol?

Spaghetti, Ice Cream, Cake and Lechon Baboy Please! Haha. Celebrate birthday like a feast in a Barrio! Then after the Celebration comes next the Beer Drinking Session with Friends and please do not forget the Videoke machine. This is such a Filipino stuff and everyone just loves doing this in all types of celebration.

The best food to cook for birthday celebration is spaghetti, adobo and of course the favorite food of the celebrant. We must make sure also that we are cooking those food in a delicious way. Birthday celebration is only once a year so we must cook the best food we can offer. The combination of delicious foods and games is the best concept for birthday celebration.

The best food to cook is Pancitor Spaghetti or Pancit malabon for the kids. You can try to make lumpiang shanghai, cake, and ice cream. Now for lunch or dinner celebration tries to cook kare-kare, pininyahang manok (Filipino dishes). If you have adult friends of course you have to reserve 1 case of beer hehehe.

You should know his favorite foods. People tend to eat all their favorites regardless of their diet as long they know its cooked by not only by their loved ones but also their friends. During my birthday, my girlfriend which is not my girlfriend during that time help me to cook my favorite spaghetti. She also teach me some ways to make it more creamier and she definitely has good sense of taste cause my favorite spaghetti gets to be more delicious together with her.

In every birthday here in the Philippines you'll absolutely find Pancit (noodles) and ofcourse the sweet style spaghetti served at the tables. There is also fried chicken, lumpia, adobo and a lot more. But my favorite would be the Kakanin (Filipino delecacies which are usually made from rice, glutinous rice and root crops) like Latik, bibingka, and cassava cake.
