A popular festive dish in Singapore and Malaysia and is usually served on the 7th day of the Chinese New Year. This shared raw fish salad is colourful and the act of tossing the salad together symbolises ushering of prosperity and abundance for the New Year.
Evaporated milk replaces the coconut milk in this dish which makes it a lot creamier. Definitely a must try.
Kanom Krok is an ubiquitous street snack made in the cast iron kanom krok pan. This version is rich, custardy and consistent. Recipes vary wildly, but this one works every time. More important than the recipe, though, is having a seasoned pan and even heat. I use a charcoal brazier, but you can use a gas burner that is wide and has a low temperature setting.
Ayam Penyet (Penyet Chicken) is a type of dish that will make your tongue feel like burning... It's so spicy that when you have the first bite, you will want some more of that spiciness.
Juicy whole chicken roasted or cooked on a rotiserrie. It still remains a popular street food in the Phillipines. It's best to give time for marinating so that the flavour melds together. Serve it with lechon sauce.
A braised dish made out of marinated pork. Pork asado is originally a Chinese recipe that has its own Filipino version.
A friend gave me this recipe - it's quick, easy and perfect every time!
