Rice being the major source of carbohydrates by most Southeast Asian countries, is a constant in any Filipino lunch or pananghalian/tanghalian. Meat and fish dishes are usually served with the rice. However, it is not typical for a Filipino everyday meal to consists of an entree, main dish and dessert. It is usally just the main dish and sometimes a serving of a dessert or fruits.
