Pork Binagoongan sa Gata Recipe (Pork with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Milk)

Pork Binagoongan is probably one of the most popular pinoy recipe for pork. We know for a fact that pork is high in cholesterol but who cares? Most Filipino food tends to be high in fat and calories. But Yes! It’s a great tasting food even if it’s not exactly healthy. While reading the September edition of Yummy Magazine a couple of days ago, I saw this recipe and decided to cook it for lunch.:)

Palitaw Recipe

Just like any Asian cuisine, Filipino light snacks and desserts are mostly rice based. Among all popular pinoy snacks, I especially love Palitaw where boiled flat rice cake is dipped in grated coconut served with refined sugar and toasted sesame seeds. Hmmm Yummy!

Palitaw is made from “bigas na malagkit” (sticky rice) washed, soaked, and then ground. Palitaw is a tagalog term which means to float. Scoops of the batter are dropped into boiling water where they float to the surface as flat discs – an indication that they’re done.

Ocean Fresh Tahong Chips : A delightful Snack

Tahong is one of Bacoor’s major produce and one of the major sources of income for the town constituents. I first got the chance to taste it last week when we were invited to cover the first Bacood Festival in Bacoor Cavite.

Crispy Tahong Chips

I’ve never been a big fan of Tahong (mussels) but after tasting the tahong chips I guess I’m now converted. The popular crispy tahong chips are made of fresh mussels, flour, spices and salt. Tahong Chips taste like real tahong in crunchy chip form and is usually consumed as “pulutan”, snacks, and an excellent alternative for junk foods which kids may enjoy.

Digman is actually a small baranggay in Bacoor that owes it’s popularity to its delicious halo halo. There are several restaurants who serve halo halo along the streets of Digman but we tried the Original Digman halo halo who surprisingly has made Digman Halo Halo a patented product since almost all of the restaurants serving Halo Halo in Digman are claiming to be THE original.

Delicious Pinoy Foods at Kawayan Cove

Last weekend I was invited together with a group of Bloggers for a familiarization tour in a seaside residential property called Kawayan Cove. We were able to enjoy our visit at the Kawayan Cove dispite the rainy weather in Nasugbu. Although I was not able to take much landscape photos which is really my intention for joining the tour, I was not really that disappointed. Wanna Guess what made me happy? I think the answer is pretty much a give away!

Steamed Crabs

Kawayan Cove Owners prepared a hearty Pinoy lunch for us right in front of the secluded Bamboo Beach. When I saw a lot of uncooked fresh sea foods in front of the beach house upon our arrival, I just told myself… the rain is perfect. Perfect time to pig-out specially with this kind of weather:)
