BEWARE!

Not for the weak of stomach! Mwahahaha!

I've seen several casualties among my friends who ate isaw there... tsk tsk tsk... but I must admit, the isaw there is good! :lol:

(Trivia for the benefit of non-filipino CR members: Isaw is a form of barbequed chicken intestines. It's orange in color and has a rubbery texture. Usually eaten with vinegar or other various kinds of sauces. )

There's one for Japanese, and one for Korean as well. I guess it's good to get to know the local cuisine of each different culture. :)

Yeah, but cold taho is also good ~ the molasses can really be tasted and the coldness is very soothing. :)

(Trivia for the benefit of those who don't know... again: Taho is actually made from soy beans ~ somewhat like tofu, but prepared by mixing it with tapioca balls and molasses. It's traditionally eaten hot, but more modern treatments have it served cold. )

Boy Bawang (literally: garlic boy) is just too salty for me... I get kidney stones just thinking about it!

Since i'm bored, I'll go ahead and explain some of pam-chan's listed cuisine, for the benefit of those who'd like to try Filipino food. :)

Kare-Kare - a form of "local curry" usually having beef and vegetables such as pechay (local cabbage), string beans, and banana heart. The curry is made of peanut butter, sometimes flavoured with atsuete (a coloring spice, usually red in color). The dish is usually eaten with bagoong (fermented shrimp paste).

Adobo - A method of boiling meat in a stew consisting of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. The meat may be any of pork, chicken, and sometimes beef. A Filipino favorite! :lol:

Nilagang baka - A type of beef stew usually served with vegetables such as potatoes, cabbage, and string beans, seasoned with onions and pepper corns.

Pancit Malabon - A must have in festive occasions. A type of noodle dish made with thick, short noodles and topped with an orange sauce and different toppings (e.g. squid, shrimp, pechay, pork, etc.). A more common name for this dish is Pancit Palabok.

Diniguan - comes from the word "pinadugo" which means "to make bleed". A type of stew consisting of pork and coagulated pigs blood. The dish is dark brown to black in color, and is served in different ways - usually wet down south, and drier/coagulated up north.

local barbeque - There's a variety of "street" barbeque available in the Philippines, with many amusing street names. Chicken head ("helmet"), Chicken Intestines ("isaw"), Chicken feet ("adidas") and Pig ears ("Walkman").

Lechon Paksiw - a type of cooking where the meat is allowed to cook in a marinade of vinegar, sometimes seasoned with salt and pepper. Lechon refers to pig meat.

Buko Pandan - a type of dessert made up of buko strips (coconut strips) and pandan jelly (from pandan leaves). It is usually served cool and prepared in a light cream.

Leche flan - your typical custard creme. :)

Pastillias - a type of candy that can be made from a variety of ingredients. The most popular is "pastillias de leche" or "milk pastilles". Usually very sweet and very addicting. :lol:

Yema - a common type of candy made of condensed milk and, sometimes, langa (jackfruit). They're usually prepared and packaged as little tetrahedrons. They have a crispy outer layer, and a gooey inner core. :lol:

Ice Candy - flavoured ice, quite like snow cones, except frozen into ice blocks in the shape of weiners. :sweatingbullets:

Pakbet - a modified version of "Pinakbet". Pinakbet comes from the ilocano (dialect of the philippines) word "pinakebet" which means "to shrink". It refers to the shriveled look of the vegetables prepared in this dish. These vegetables include amaplaya (bitter gourd), eggplant, potatoes, sigarilyas (I don't know the translation for this vegetable), tomatoes, string beans, and sometimes lima beans. Pakbet includes squash to the mix.

Chopsuey - a chinese dish of mixed vegetables. Not really Filipino there...

Lumpiang Sariwa - or "fresh lumpia", is a giant spring roll of sorts with a soft wrapping. The ingredients inside the lumpia include bean sprouts, "ubod" (coconut core), soft tofu, and carrots among other ingredients. It is usually topped off with a sweet peanut dressing.

Good thing I just ate dinner... if not, i'd be drooling right about now.
