Lip-smacking Dishes Cooked Pinoy Style

July 21, 2011 Mango Tours 0 Comments

When we travel into a destination for the first time, we always tend to cope ourselves with the place to unveil its unfamiliar culture. Some say that getting the real meaning of a place or its culture starts by tasting its food.  

In the Philippines, local dishes are always a pleasure, though to some it can be a little bit challenging. Philippine cuisine is greatly influenced by the Spanish, Chinese, and American styles of cooking that dates back hundreds of years ago.  A fusion of sweet, salty, spicy, and sour flavors are in almost every Filipino dish, delivering unlimited delight to foodies worldwide.

Here are some of the all-time favorite Filipino dishes that every foodie in the world would crave for:

Crunchy Bagnet of Vigan


Bagnet is a crispy, sumptuous treat that originated from Vigan City in the Northern part of the Philippines.  This northern dish is an Ilocano version of Lechon Kawali but is cooked differently. In contrast to Lechon Kawali, Bagnet is actually double fried. The reason behind this cooking process dates back from the olden days of Vigan. By that time, there was still no refrigerator and the only way Ilocanos can preserve the meat is by frying it. So by the time they want to cook the pork into a bagnet, they just have to fry it again. This succulent dish is best served with slices of tomato, cucumber, and bagoong.

Succulent Lechon of Cebu


Cebu Lechon is a delectable pork dish that is roasted with the enhancing blend of different herbs and spices stuffed with lemongrass, bananas (saba) and taro. It is one of the best in the world. This mouth-watering goodness is best partnered with sweet sarsa and atchara, a sweet pickled papaya.

Spicy Laing of Bicol



Bicolanos are known for cooking and eating spicy dishes; one of which is the famous laing dish. Its main ingredients are taro leaves or gabi, coconut milk, slices of onion and garlic, fish meat, shrimp and chili. Spicy food lovers will surely love to eat this deliciously healthy dish from Bicol.

Sizzling Sisig of Pampanga



Pampanga is known to serve the best sisig in the Philippines. It is a popular Filipino dish made from boiling  and frying parts of pig's head and liver. It is usually seasoned with calamansi and chili peppers; served on a sizzling plate with onions and raw eggs on top.

Flavorful Bulalo of Batangas


The best Bulalo recipe is said to be found in Batangas, located in the south-western part of Luzon. Bulalo is a famous Filipino beef stew made from beef shanks mixed with sweet corn, and green vegetables. It’s a favorite dish of the Filipinos especially during the rainy season. The beef shanks are usually boiled for more than an hour to reveal its tasty and flavorful goodness and then adding up the vegetables and condiments to add more flavor. It is best served with fish sauce.

So the next time you travel to one of these places, don’t dare to miss these mouth-watering treats!

The 2011 Adobo Festival

July 14, 2011 Mango Tours 0 Comments

PRESS STATEMENT
JS CAMINS PRODUCTIONS 
July 14, 2011
                       
THE 2011 ADOBO FESTIVAL SWEEPS NORTHERN CALI
(Six Years in the Making)
By Rose Garcia



THE annual celebration of the ‘Adobo Festival’, produced by JS Camins Productions in cooperation with GMA Pinoy TV, a multicultural festivity, is sweeping the mainstream audiences in the Bay area.

            Over the weekend (July 9 and 10), the ‘Adobo’ Festival was a big success in Vallejo Waterfront Park as it captured thousands of multi-racial audiences to witness the cultural food and music festivity.

            As early as 11:30 a.m. Americans were queueing at the ‘Adobo’ Food station where the famous Filipino dish ‘Adobo’, normally cooked with garlic, pepper, soy sauce and vinegar, were being sold. Not only curious about the taste, these Americans wanted to find out how ‘adobo’ is cooked. And between ‘chicken and pork adobo,’ majority have preferred ‘ chicken ‘ which were sold out ahead of time.

            “This is the best year ever. We started the Adobo Festival in a small gathering of crowd in Daly City six years ago, and I can’t believe the huge crowd of followers we have over these years, “ Joey Camins, Producer of the successful ‘Adobo’ Festival, said.

            Shortly before noon, the event unfold with a dance to the tune of the ‘Atin Ito, Adobo’ theme by the Zumba Dancers led by Cristina Mendoza, followed by chain of songs from various performers and bands.

            The talent-participants in the festival were making waves in Northern California in their respective singing engagements. Aljur Abrenica, GMA Pinoy TV’s famed actor, brought fun and excitement to the entire viewers. He also signed pictures and had photo ops with fans and families. Likewise, GMA had given away lots of freebies such as shirts, shopping bags, pens and notepads to name a few.

            Raffle draws were held for free call cards to the Philippines while the Bayanihan Cargo gave away free 10 Balikbayan boxes. At the same time, the Mango Tours have raffled a two-way ticket for Hawaii.

            Aside from enjoying the booth that caters to a wide variety of patrons from local craft products to purses, shirts, and the like, well-known lawyer in San Francisco and the Bay area, Lourdes ‘Lou’ Tancinco, conducted free consultations regarding immigration matters with the audience, spiced up with a game portion.

            The ‘Adobo Festival’ won’t be a success without the much awaited ‘Adobo’ cook-off contest that drew huge followers particularly, the White Caucasian and Black Americans. Out of several entries from restaurants and individuals, only the best three were chosen. Lead judge for the ‘adobo’ cook fest is Daly City Commissioner of Library (Board of Trustee), Dorie Paniza. The winners will be awarded with trophy during the Milpitas Adobo Festival on September.

            “ I would like to thank all of our followers, sponsors, friends and volunteers, the media outfit and the City of Vallejo for allowing us to showcase the Filipino pride in the city and for bringing the culture close to the heart of the Filipino-Americans while introducing our hidden culture to other mixed races, “ according to Camins.

            Camins stressed that while the ‘Adobo’ Festival will continue to bring more fun and excitement especially to the Fil-am community, he said the event would concentrate more in coming up with a wholesome entertainment for all viewers as it continues to be a free-for-all festival.

            The Labor Day entertainment for the entire family is upcoming, Camins said, “ I am inviting those who failed to join us in Vallejo to catch the ‘Adobo Festival’ live at the Milpitas Sports Complex in Calaveras Road on September 3 and 4. “
