anyways, i really don't know my blood type (at that time) so i had the perfect excuse to order meat he he he.
this is Ginataang Langka or young (unripe) jackfruit cooked in coconut milk. the perfect version is spicy hot but this one was a little too sour for my taste. it also had a lot of buad flakes (dried fish) that made it too salty. if you look carefully enough, you'll see that i ordered a slab of breaded porkchop that's set off in the far left of the picture :)
this one's a throwback to our spanish heritage. menudo is similar to cocido with pork, green peas, potatoes, carrots cooked in a tomato based sauce. the main difference is that we normally don't add chorizo de bilbao (it's rather expensive) and the creative pinoy usually throws in purefoods hot dog. don't forget the pasas (raisins) that give it the distinctly pinoy sweet hint.
anyways, menudo is now part of my do-not-eat list.
