It’s a known fact that most people’s passion is to discover authentic Filipino dishes that will surely give them an extra ordinary experience. If you think you are into this passion, you are on the right track for you are about to read food names that will not just give you and extra ordinary taste but tickle and your mind and remind you of something sexy yet funny.
1. Poque- Poque – Naughty as it may sound, this dish which is commonly served in authentic Iloco Restaurants brings health benefits coming from eggplant and scrambled egg. Poque-Poque is just prepared in a very simple and easy way. You just need to have grilled aubergine (eggplant), some onions, garlic, tomatoes, seasoning and egg. All you have to do is to sauté the ingredients, mix the eggs, season to taste then Voila, you now have your own Poque- Poque straight to your dining room.
2. Kabatiti – If you come from a “tagalog” speaking province you would probably sneer upon hearing this word. However, if you hear it from an Ilocano, there is no need for you to worry, it's just referring to a sponge gourd or “patola”. Such vegetable is uniquely served by Ilocanos by grilling, adding tomatoes and bagoong (fish paste). So the next time you hear someone say this word, start smiling as you think of the sweetness of “Kabatiti” on your taste buds.
