As cliche as it may sound, truly there's no place like home. The feeling of coming back to your roots is just beyond words. This, likewise transcends to enjoying habitual foods we grew up with. Hence, whenever we are in the Philippines we always make sure that we get to taste the foods we usually missed. We hopped from one restaurant to another to indulge into scrumptious, like no other fare. The photo above shows a typical breakfast plate of Pinoys. It has some of the most popular, uniquely Filipino breakfast items. You wouldn't go wrong with fried daing na bangus (milk fish marinated in vinegar, onion, garlic and pepper), cured meat like pork tapa and fried dried seafoods such as danggit and pusit (squid) for a morning fix. All these go well with a fried rice. Complement it with the famous kapeng barako (Filipino Coffee) and you're all set to start your day right.
|So crispy on the outside yet, so soft in the inside.|
|Chicken with Salted Egg, our all time favorite. Describing it as good is an understatement.|
|Shrimps with Vegetables, note the sequence of ingredients in the name. It's true, it's shrimps overload.|
|Another all time favorite fried rice.|
