Giniling na Baboy

As the national tourism claims, it really is more fun in the Philippines. With over 170 dialects in use, there is no other place I know where you take a mere hour drive to the north and a word for a certain food will already have a whole different culinary meaning. Being from Tarlac and of Kapampangan dialect, this ground pork cooked in tomatoes to me is TORTA but if I was to offer it to someone, say, from Manila, torta would be understood as an omelette. I have to admit, Kapampangans may lay claim to the best pork tocino but in this game of NAME THAT DISH, we are definitely off the mark. What we call torta, which is really giniling na baboy, is actually the filling used to make torta. Confused yet? Me, too.
