jelly bangus belly

i think i owe you a picture of a bangus belly right? i had driving duties for my mom this morning and passed by one of my favorite restaurants (actually a turo-turo carinderia) on earth — aling conching’s. bought bulanglang bangus and paksing bangus for lunch (we were having balatung/monggo at home so fish would be the right partner), and then some sisig and adobong ate (liver) later for dinner.

here (was) the paksing bangus. look at that fatty belly! and of course, you had to mash that green finger chili in patis to serve as sawsawan for the fish πŸ˜€ the sour, salty, spicy flavors blend well with the richness of the fatty fish. πŸ™‚

    i shuddered, in a good way, when i saw the fat on that bangus! wow, i'm gonna ask my mom if we can get milkfish for the weekend πŸ˜‰ not a big fan of the bulanglang or paksi. i like it broiled, though, with a dipping sauce of vinegar and baguk (shrimp paste). but if my only choice is bulanglang, then i go with toyo and sili (chili). without the dipping sauces, the flavor of the fatty fish is just waaaay toooo rich!

    I think I know who these 2 are…Betis Boy is a classmate in High School while Guagua Girl is a classmate in Elementary. What are you waiting for guys? We are not getting any younger. You are wasting precious time, darn it!

    it's because i make her shudder, but in a bad way. πŸ˜› (and to think my belly's so much fatter than that of the bangus there). πŸ˜€

    thanks for dropping by this blog, ernesto πŸ™‚ best regards!

    Is this the one along OG Road that you talked several times about on FB? This is on the left side of the road on the way to Guagua right? Maybe I should try this one of these days. Which should you recommendd I try first, Conching's or Apag Marangle?


  5. Betis Boy says:

    Yup. if you're coming from san fernando along OG
    Road it's on the left side of the road towards lubao, in front of the pampanga medical specialists' hospital. hmmm. the crispy pata in apag marange is good (though not consistent), so i guess i'll have you try conching's first. go there for lunch. dinner is another “affair” πŸ˜€
