    … i’m just new here. and i watch how you prepare the tortang talong. it’s cool and konting suggestions lang kasi when when i do it my way. Nilalagyan ko poh ng mga spices like diced tomatoes, and diced onions and sometimes i add in some ground pork too. try nyo poh. It’s more inviting pag may spices. Thanks

  4. Wow, that’s a nice looking tortang talong. My mom would include that in our weekly diet as kids. I was a bad a kid though because I would just scrape the edges and leave off the middle part.

  5. Tnx spy.

    Hi Kuya,
    I’ve learn a lot just by watching your cooking on youtube. You are really good cook. My husband loves your cook especially your Beef Pochero. He’s been to the Philippines before and tasted different food and he reckons your beef pochero is one of the best filipino food he ever tasted.
    Keep the new recipes coming. We really enjoy them. Do you have the recipe for Sapin Sapin? I would love you to put it on youtube.

    Thank you very much.
    Kind regards,
    Linda from Australia
