6-29-2015 Food of the Day: Kinilaw na Bangsi
One of the best ways to prepare fresh fish is Kinilaw. Kinilaw is raw fish bathed in vinegar with tomatoes, onions, ginger, chilis, and sometimes coconut milk. It is a popular dish among Filipinos and Filipino restaurants have kinilaw in their menu. The commercial one usually use tanigue for their kinilaw. I usually prefer the smaller fishes like bangsi as kinilaw. Bangsi is also know as barungoy or flying fish. Bangsi is boney and it takes skills to debone the cheap fish. I have grown to love this fish when I lived in Bohol with my Dad for a couple of years. For me, the best time to eat kinilaw is during summer time while at the beach.
What is your favorite fish for kinilaw? Do you love eating raw food?
Every locality has a food that they can call it their own. We usually miss the food that we eat while growing up. A lot of Cebuanos are now living abroad or at least away from Cebu and there are just days that they miss certain dishes. These dishes are the ones that remind them of home, or childhood or people they love. Here are recipes for 7 dishes that will delight any Cebuano's heart, tongue, and belly:
You cannot say you are a Cebuano foodie until you partake and enjoy the offerings of your local Pungko-Pungko stall. Pungko means squat in the Cebuano language. The Pungko-Pungko name was attached to vendors who walk to sell food and when they find interested eaters they usually look for a clean corner and squat or "pungko" to eat. Now, most Pungko-Pungko suki do not need to look for their favorite vendor because there are now in many places in the city that are known for this type of "cuisine". The popular hotspots for pungko-pungko are the stalls in the Fuente area at the back of Sampaguita Suites, Redemptorist Church Area near Foodarama, and Cebu Doctor's University area beside McDonald's.
Ikkousha means "one happy place". This new ramen shop is positioning itself to be the happy place for Cebuano Ramen lovers. Ikkousha Ramen comes from Hakata, Japan. Hakata is the home of Tonkotsu, the legendary broth that made ramen a worldwide phenomenon. At Ikkousha Ramen Cebu, you can expect the best and most authentic Tonkotsu Ramen in town.
