Batangas night market

Image
Last night, we went to a night market so I can buy flowers and bibingka. I love this photo of people cooking bibingka (rice cake) here on the street. The purple food is called puto bong bong (rice cake with coconut and sugar).

Want your cholesterol to shoot up? Then eat these chicken innards and fried chicharon. This is definitely something I won't try. Hehe.

Lomi house

Image
We ate at lomi house in lipa city yesterday before going to mataasnakahoy. My mom ordered lomi- a local specialty of noodles, egg, meat and thickened by cassava flour. A very filling soup. I got the pork adobo with rice. Yum except for the fat on the meat.

Went to a local supermarket here in Batangas and found instant chicken pho. Baby and I tried it but it wasn't very good. Guess the real thing is always better. Hehe.

Cupcake

Image
Who knew there were cupcakes in the Philippines? I attended my cousin's daughter's birthday party and Saturday and saw this beauty.





A bummer the frosting was too sweet and cake a little dry.

Banana Q

Image
I'm in the Philippines for the holidays so will be posting what I see.

My cousin got me Banana Q yesterday. This street food is the perfect dessert or snack. It's basically a banana covered in molasses and barbecued. Ooh yeah! It's been a favorite since I was little.
