MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte said Tuesday he would not give up his “maruya” (sugar-raised banana fritters) for hamburgers.

Before he left for on official visit to Japan, Duterte was asked whether he preferred homegrown chain Jollibee or American giant McDonald’s.

“Frankly, I do not eat… I stick to to bibingka and maruya, native dish,” he told a Japanese reporter.
