Welcome home to me!

tilapiamonggo.jpg

After a week and a half in India, I finally found myself in our family house in Imus, Cavite, Philippines. My parents were also in town and my Mom wanted to make sure that I got good ol’ home cooking after my travels in India. I’ve featured this meal before so I won’t go into the details but we had fried tilapia and ginisang monggo with rice. Lovely, soft, sticky, Jasmine rice. The tilapia in the Philippines usually comes from fish farms that you can find all over the place (in Tagalog: palaisdahan – did I spell that right?). Usually they are smaller than the gigantor tilapia that you get in the US. Somehow this makes them a lil’ tastier.

Up ahead are a gillion posts about airplane food, Indian food, Filipino food, Singaporean food, snacks, fruits…. the list goes on and on.
