Boracay clams


Boracay clams, originally uploaded by nicolegoes.

On our last night at Boracay, we went to eat at this restaurant called "Plato D' Boracay." First, Ate Gi and them went to the wet market near the restaurant and picked out which seafood they wanted to be cooked. Then brought it over, told the waiters or whoever how they wanted it and then... ate it. This was the first batch of clams that was brought out, and when Ate Gi tried them, she went out and bought some more. The second time, they baked the calms with butter and cheese. Shucks they were so good. Melted, hot cheese smothered over these huge pieces of clam. They didn't have that seafood/ocean taste, and like their chewiness was perfect and all...

Boracay foodies - Pork chop


boracay foodies, originally uploaded by nicolegoes.

We walked up and down the strip of white sand at Boracay, like over a mile worth, going back and forth carrying freaking heavy bags looking for our room. Finally, after the longest time when checked in at a different resort and... ah, went to eat.

This is pork chop with egg and tomatoes and fried rice. I don't know how it tastes though coz I ordered beef steak. It was good, the sauce of it was sour and the meat was pretty tender. I didn't take a picture of it coz it didn't look too pretty. Ha ha.

Well... More Borcay foodies to come.

mani!


mani!, originally uploaded by nicolegoes.

Everytime we are at PRO-GIG (Ate Gi's band rehearsal studio), I can't help but walk to the next block and visit the lady selling these. She has a small space on the corner in front of 7-11, with just enough space for her to cook the peanuts and display her foodies. She cooks peanuts like this, peanuts without the dark brown "skin" or whatever you call it, and also cornicks.. You can buy P5, P10, P100... or anything in between. she scoops them up with a shot glass and places them in a small brown bag.. then into a plastic bag about the size of a sandwich bag.

Man.. I love peanuts...

Terrine


Ate Gi's dad was watching television about a month ago, the food channel, and we saw this chef create this meatloaf sort of dish, wrapped in bacon. Then, a couple week later, there is the same dish on the table, with bacon around it and all.

It is served as a cold cut, and its good when eaten with bread. I am not to sure what goes in to making this dish but I know its a lot. So... I guess it'll just remain a surprise.

Ketchup Please!


green eggs and ham, originally uploaded by nicolegoes.

This was another breakfast meal in Sagada. I love sunny side up eggs for breakfast, better with toast though unless you pour ketchup all over the rice too. I love eggs with ketchup, it's like ketchup was made to be put on eggs. One time when I was in like 7th grade or something, I ate nothing but a sunny side up, full of ketchup, and a piece of toast for breakfast every morning for months.

Is that spam?


Is that spam?, originally uploaded by nicolegoes.

We brought a couple cans of spam with us when we went to Sagada. This is right after the bus dropped us in Banaue and they were about to eat it straight out of the can. I was like whaa?! Can you do that? And I guess... you can. But anyways, I love spam. Actually, I loved spam, until I started making musubi (spam sushi) then I hated it, even the smell. I didn't eat for almost a year.. til this plate of spam.
