lunch at the farm

atching C was in town a couple of weeks ago and the agupipol had lunch with her at abe’s farm. the paku salad above was prepared by V for her and we got to partake of this fantastic dish, the ingredients of which (except the prawns) were all home-grown in their garden.

we had crispy pata too and fried plapla (tilapia) with mustasa and buro. (sorry wasn’t able to take photos of those). the rest of the spread below, but i tell you, more than the food (really good, but not spectacular, but then again we’re kapampangan … he.he.), it was atching C’s stories, which were… how do you put this … compelling.

i liked their tsokolateng batirol, though β€” really deep and rich.

gisang gule (sauteed mixed vegetables)
bulanglang bangus (milkfish in guava broth)
cocido (braised beef in tomato sauce)
coconut juice with pandan leaves
suman and mangga with vanila ice cream (rice cake with mangoes and ice cream)
kalame (rice cake)
tsokolateng binatirul (hot chocolate and peanut drink)

    i'm cracking up right now … in the photo for the suman and ice cream, i can't find a trace of suman. i think it's covered by that huge mound of (melting) ice cream πŸ˜› oh, and what's a cocido? i've never heard of that before. is it similar to asado or pochero?

    he.he. actually that dessert is called “sikreto ni maria” πŸ™‚ the suman is hidden under the heaps of carabao milk ice cream. the cocido is very similar to the pochero, only without the fried plantains.

    for some reason, that dessert name strikes me as bastos πŸ˜›
