Saweetie labels herself a picky eater, however, she isn’t the textbook version of the phrase. The “My Type” rapper grew up eating Filipino food thanks to her mother, who is of Chinese and Filipino descent, and her Iola, who babysat her and fed her tons of adobo.
Saweetie’s favorite meals include seafood and the only three tags she follows on Instagram are #tapinchallenge, #icygirl, and #oysters.
Saweetie attributes her love of Filipino food to growing up in the Bay area where the food selections are eclectic.
Saweetie is happy about the boom surrounding Filipino food and encourages everyone to at least try the cuisine. “I’m happy that people are getting hip to it because it’s just so good,” said Saweetie who says you should at least try adobo saying, “Adobo is the hall of fame—it’s a given.”
