Kake Udon

Kake Udon

Whoop-de-doo! He's here! Remember a few posts ago when I mentioned that one of my favorite bloggers will be taking the reins of Kawaling Pinoy for a post or two? Well, Raymund from Ang Sarap is here now, with a piping hot Japanese noodle soup called Kake Udon to share with ya' all. Guys, just with the photos alone you see why I am a huge fan of his work. His blog is filled … [Read more...]

Relyenong Hipon

Relyenong Hipon

You know how it is when you go to a supermarket to buy tomatoes and you come home with everything but tomatoes? Well, that's me, guys. Every Thursday night, I drive to Seafood City with a very detailed list, wander the aisles aimlessly like a kid in a candy store and leave with all sorts of things other than what's on my list.  A lot of times, I'll be in the middle of a … [Read more...]

Ginataang Alimasag

Ginataang Alimasag

Ginataang alimasag is another of our many seafood dishes cooked in coconut milk and chilies. I included long beans and calabasa to the pot I made today but other vegetables such as pechay, spinach or eggplant are also common additions. Have plenty of rice ready, folks, and forget the forks and spoons. This scrumptious crab dish is definitely best enjoyed kamayan-style. … [Read more...]

Lechon Sauce

Lechon Sauce

Have you looked at a Mang Tomas bottle lately? I mean, have you read its label closely? If you go through its list of ingredients, you'll find that this popular Filipino condiment is made of bread crumbs among other things but contains no liver at all the way traditional lechon sauce should. Don't get me wrong here, this post is not a dish against the brand. I love Mang … [Read more...]

Cocido-style Nilaga

Cocido-style Nilaga

Initially, I was going to straight up call this cocido but I know that would have been a bit of a stretch as cocido is a little more complex than the simple soup we have here. Traditional cocido involves a variety of meats such as pork, beef, chicken or sausages along with the customary cabbage, garbanzos and bananas. It is usually presented at the table in parts, with the … [Read more...]

Pinais na Hipon

Pinais na Hipon

Guys, you've heard me moan and groan and whine about my food photography many times before. You all know how I am a hit and miss with my picture taking and this pinais na hipon is definitely one of those occasions when my photography skills failed to give full justice to the dish.  My peeps, just take my word and trust me when I tell you this seafood dish is seafood at its … [Read more...]

Pinakbet with Crispy Lechon

Pinakbet with Crispy Lechon

As much as I ravaged with glee the lechon kawali I made a few days ago, the almost three pounds of crisp pork belly proved way too much for one person. I ate to my heart's content and still had about half a slab left to find use for. I've had the pleasure of trying pinakbet with crispy lechon at one of the Filipino sit-down restaurants in Cerritos but I've never prepared … [Read more...]

Pineapple Pork Ribs

Pineapple Pork Ribs

I thawed a pack of baby back ribs Saturday night with  plans to cook Loslos for next day's lunch. Crunchy breaded ribs, steamed rice and ketchup...yum, yum, I was so looking forward to a fantastic meal. And then, of course,  I opened my pantry and boo-hoo! I only had about an inch of oil left, definitely not enough for deep-frying. Don't ya just hate it when that happens? … [Read more...]
