Yusi

Ilocano is one of the most adventurous cuisines I ever tried, and I love it. From pinikpikan, dinengdeng, dinakdakan and pinapaitan, they might all look like it came from a horror movie due to the excessive use of innards and offal but ohhh boy they all taste so good. Ilocano...

Pinangat na Isda

Nangangasim ka na ba? This word is one of the hardest things to translate as it involves a sensation that is not experienced by non-Filipinos. I think the nearest one is drooling but that sensation does not involve the sourness aspect. Pinagat na Isda is one of those dishes that...

Guiso

Spabok

Pancit is nothing different hence you have the likes of Tuguegarao’s Pancit Batil Patong, Isabelas’ Pancit Cabagan, Lucban’s Pancit Habab, Bicol’s...

Warek Warek

One of my favourite Filipino provincial cuisine from the Ilocanos, the extensive use of weird unknown vegetables and offal cuts might not appease everyone, but this cuisine just know how to make them really delicious. One of those dishes is this Warek Warek, made with pork ears and fatty pork...

Rellenong Bangus

I have been dying to make this for the longest time, but I can’t find that much time to make it until now. Making Rellenong Bangus is quite labour intensive specially if you live outside the Philippines where you cannot tell your fishmonger to prepare your bangus relleno style. Back...

Batsui

Pampanga indeed is the food capital of the Philippines, this province has some of the most delicious recipes Philippines has to offer. Pampanga is also known for the heavy use of offal in its dishes which all boils down to history. As most of us knows Pampanga is surrounded by...

Jollibee Tsim Sha Tsui (Hong Kong)

Last month we stopped over in Hong Kong when we had our Europe trip, we had at least 8 hours to kill and what we did was food tripping! One of our agenda has to be Jollibee and if you are a Filipino living in a place without it, a...
