Filipino Foods: Sinigang, Sisig, Kare-kare, Pakbet

Here are more choices of Filipino food you should try when you come to the Philippines.

Sisig 

Sisig is a good partner for beer. This dish was actually meant to be taken as a "Pulutan" ( food that is usually taken with alcohol) or as an appetizer but now it has become a main dish when Filipinos go out to dine, taken with rice. Sisig is basically pig's ears seasoned and grilled, then chopped and mixed with liver, pork and sometimes Chicharon to give it the crunchy feel, sauteed in onions and garlic and seasoned with hot sauce or chili and calamondin (calamansi) and soysauce.

Pakbet

This food is made up of vegetables such as sitaw(string beans), squash, ampalaya(bitter gourd), okra(ladies fingers) and kangkong(swamp cabbage or water spinach) sauteed and seasoned with bagoong(shrimp paste). It is a very tasty combination of vegetables and for those who loves healthy, vitamin filled vegetables, this is a must try.

This dish also has a lot of vegetables in it, such as, sitaw(string beans), okra(ladies fingers), labanos(white radish) and kangkong(water spinach or swamp cabbage) and is also seasoned with sili(green pepper).

Kare Kare 

The main ingredient of this dish is either Ox tail, pig's leg, beef, cow stomach or a mixture of them, or the main ingredient could be mixed seafoods. The main seasoning of this dish is Peanut butter or ground peanut, so the sauce is thick and the taste is a bit sweet. This dish has plenty of vegetables in it like, sitaw(string beans), eggplant, pechay tagalog(Pak Choi) and puso ng saging(banana bud). It is usually paired up with shrimp paste as the shrimp paste would give it more flavor. Some restaurants mix the shrimp paste together with the Kare Kare so for those who have seafood allergies, you should ask the waiter if they do that just to be on the safe side.

Bulalo

Bulalo is stewed beef shank and marrow bones mixed with vegetables. This is one dish you should really try. Due to the main ingredient being bones and marrow, the soup is very tasty. It usually is mixed with vegetables like Napa cabbage, cabbage,  potatoes and corn, seasoned with onion and onion leaves and peppercorn.

  2. At the time, I was attracted to my future husband for his cool composure under pressure and his decisiveness. He said he was initially attracted to me for my warmth and vulnerability. Describing those same characteristics at our tenth wedding anniversary, I think I called him “cold and controlling” and he called me “neurotic.” At our divorce, we agreed that he had enough of my vulnerability and I’d had enough of his decisiveness to last a lifetime.

  3. Planning a wedding that takes place under one roof, offers so many advantages. In the first instance a venue that offers a wedding package, tend to employ people who are experts in this field. They plan weddings for a living. They are the experts. Whilst many venues only offer the room and catering, a wedding under one roof many include a wedding planner and if they don't they will be working regularly with florists, cake makers, companies that do decorations, DJ's and photographers.

Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos . Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some la
