Food Porn - Cebuano Adobo

Image
adobo is a filipino dish and all regions have their own unique take on the dish. in cebu, when one orders adobo you just might get the variety that's very similar to the crispy lechon kawali.

in all respect, it is marinated using the standard adobo sauce: vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, peppercorn and bay leaf. the only difference is that the sauce is reduced and the pork pieces fried until it becomes very dry.


the other version is to double cook the dish. once the sauce is reduced, the pork pieces are taken out and made to rest until it becomes cold. better yet, place it in a container and keep in the freezer. to cook, heat oil and deep fry the pork until the skin start to turn into a crackling. this process ensures that the insides are still soft whereas the exterior is fried to a crunchy crisp.

this version is tastier than your usual lechon kawali without the need for mang tomas sauce.

when i had this dish, i experimented further by tossing it in dinuguan. i like my adobo a bit s…

Food Porn - Crispy Dinuguan

dinuguan, otherwise known as pig's blood stew. traditionally cooked using the entrails but has since evolved into a healthier version using the standard cooking parts such as liempo (belly). speaking of "evolution", it was only a matter of time before someone decided to fry the meat/fat pieces to a crisp before cooking it via the usual dinuguan style.

verdict? i love the texture and crispiness of this oh-so-sinful dish!


grab this dish in sinugba, the gallery, cebu city!

my nokia china rip-off dual sim phone finally croaked after three years of faithful service and many months of frustration trying to figure our the menu items that are in chinese.

and since my word for the day is "Eulogy", here are my last words, sentences, phrases, euphemism, allegory and thoughts dedicated to my phone:

eskandalosa ka. lintek sa lakas ang ringtone, keypad at message tone mo! naman, pati kapitbahay ko nagigising sa lakas ng alarm mo. nung isang araw nakalimutan kitang i set, nag reklamo si ate charo at na late daw sya sa gising dahil hindi ka nag ingay. sa sobrang pikon ko, ginamit ko tuloy yung isang pre-recorded tone na pang-gising, ayun natahimik si ate charo ng nag-ingay ka na "peking na mo" (repeat 200X).

da best ka din, sa halagang less than payb thousand, meron kang radyo, mp3 player, voice recorder, video and TV recorder, 8 megapixel camera (pero di ko alam kung bakit blurred pa din ang quality), dual sim at snake xenxia na paboritong kun…

nung isang araw nanood ako ng "Forever and a day".

hep, walang kokontra, please, pinilit lang ako. katapat lang isang scoop sa gelatissimo ang bribe sa 'kin. and yes, namatay si sam milby sa movie.

at kung nag react ka sa statement na yan, obvious nanood ka din (ipokrita!).

anyways, me isang scene, si kc nag dialogue kay sam: "i want to hear your eulogy for me...", aaminin ko, medyo affected ako, samahan pa ng singhot at impit na hikbi ni doktora minnie sa tabi ko, medyo mapapaluha ka din. kasi naman, ang daming kurot ni minnie, sakit ha?! dyos ko po, 30 years old (hep, ano sabi ko? WALANG KOKONTRA) na tayo?! kinikilig pa din?!?!

syempre, ready na si doktora sa kanyang pang urian best actress for a single scene emote award sabay kuha ng panyolitong puti. yung isa pang kasama namin na si doc ron ready na rin sa showtime bigtime performance. dapat one tear lang, right eye.

di rin patatalo si doktora emik at nangi-ngilid luha na ang maldita habang bumubulong na &…
