There are hundreds of ways to make sisig, and Grilled Liempo Sisig is just one of the ways. This delicious sisig version (which is very tasty, by the way) makes use of grilled pork belly. I am referring to the Filipino style inihaw na liempo which is an awesome dish by itself. Can you imagine […]
Sinigang na Liempo sa Sampaloc with Gabi is a great idea for lunch. I love to have it with a condiment of fish sauce and chili along with a cup of warm steamed white rice – or 2 cups, perhaps. This recipe uses fresh or fresh-frozen unripe tamarind as the souring agent, which is how […]

Let’s talk about grilled pork belly at the moment. In my opinion, grilled pork belly has always been the favorite pulutan. Why? Simply because it tastes great; it is easy to prepare; and it is readily available everywhere – you can even have it as a main dish.
We Filipinos are known for our positive values, hospitality, being hard-working, and our ability to face whatever challenges that life brings – with a smile in our face. On top of that, we are also known to have a great passion for food – to the point of considering eating as a hobby.
Of course, the last statement does not apply to all; although it covers the majority.
Let’s talk about food, our favorite Filipino Foods.
