​First time we clicked a link and scrolled through a Jun Belen post ― a recollection of lechon in Manila ― we were smitten. S.F. blogger (and occasional SFoodie contributor) Belen has fierce photo skills and an eye for taking Filipino cooking out of the world of titas and vinyl tablecloths and into the realm of the modern foodie. Turns out Saveur was impressed, too. Today, Jun-Blog showed up as a finalist for its 2011 Best Food Blog Awards, for Best Regional Cuisine. Another favorite San Franciscan on the list: Irvin Lin's Eat the Love, a finalist in the Best Baking and Desserts category. Lin's also had a SFoodie byline. Congratulations, gentlemen.

Winners are chosen by reader vote; sign up and vote at Saveur.com (registration required) by May 12. Results announced May 17.

Wow!

That was very famous in the Philippines. I really enjoy eating that, especially the crispy and the delicious skin. And it is good to have sauce as a perfect match!
