Hinalang

Hinalang, just the name alone sounds hot and spicy because it is. “Halang” in Visayan means Hot or Spicy and this is what this dish is all about, a close relative to the Nilagang Baka but this is its spicy counterpart, with ginger and chillies, this soup dish will make...

Inaslum

If the Ilocanos have the Dinengdeng, Mindanaoans have Law-uy, Visayans have the Utan then in Romblon they have Inaslum. Unlike most of the vegetable soup in the Philippines where there is a set ingredients for it to be called like such, Inaslum is the opposite, basically it’s just a soup...

If you had tried Pigar-Pigar right in the centre of Dagupan’s night street food scene in Galvan street then most probably you had been introduced to Kaleskes already. If not then let me introduce you to this dish, Kaleskes. Kaleskes is a Pangasinense term for intestine, as the name suggests...

Sinigang na Salmon Belly 1

Filipino Cocido 2

Filipino Cocido

Cocido in Spanish is the past participle of the verb cocer (“to cook”), so it literally means “cooked something”, that something can be anything like meats (pork, beef, chicken, mutton) and vegetables (cabbage, turnips, parsnips, potatoes, carrots and chickpeas).  Cocido on its own is a complete meal, high energy and very...
