La.Pi.S.#19: on a Stick

Make tusok-tusok that and saw-saw it there!
Prelude to "Pinoy Street Food"


Where ever I go, I always find myself make tusok-tusok that fishballs. When I went to Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, I was fascinated to this one unfamiliar thing. They call it "tempura". I thought it was home/selfmade by the vendor, but its not when he took out a pack of it. Well the pack says "tempura" but weeks after I went to a grocery then i found out that that tempura thing is actually a "squid roll". similar to a squid balls but in a roll or elongated. That vendor was so thankful to me because I persuaded my friends and some by-standers to buy and try tempura, he took out about 3 kilos in just 30 min or less. Sayang, wala akong pix nun kasi di ko pa hilig ang food photography.

So, as my entry to this Theme:



I got the phrase "make tusok-tusok that" in a situation where a college "pa-susyal" girl is a newbie in eating fishballs. Her also "pa-susyal" friend taught her how to eat fishballs by saying "here, grab a stick. make tusok-tusok that fishball then saw-saw it there sa sauce". Oh! diba sossy ang conyong dalaga :))

I will make a blog entries regarding "pinoy street foods" and i want it to launch this on this theme. since i haven't cropped and organized my photos. ill just post it next one at a time. so do come by next time to see it. but as of now, here an intro to my "pinoy street food" on a stick.

As I said that I make tusok-tusok that fishballs everywhere i go. So here are the the pix of a traveling fishball man. Im sure, my sister Jenn will be mad when she found out I also used fishball as my entry. Kasi I said na yung "ihaw-ihaw there in the kanto" will be my entry. eto yung feel ko eh, sorry nalang sya :))

Aba, tama ba namang pati ang fishball cart ay tangayin? May promo ba? Get one stick fishballs and get a cart for free! Hehehe!

Like I told Jen, I soooo miss these too! Have to be contented with the store-bought squid balls while we're here, I guess...

Sino ba ang hindi mahilig diyan?! Na-miss ko na rin yan, Jay. Kung hindi nga lang nakakatakot mag ka sakit eh parang gusto ko kainin yan araw-araw. Sarap.

Can I tusok too?

fish balls, squid balls, tempura... ay love na love ko yan! as a matter of fact, napabili nga ako sa asian supermarket ng fishballs, para sana makagawa ako dito sa bahay pero... its not the same! mas masarap pa rin yung may kasamang alikabok at usok na nabibili sa kalye, hehe.

Nagkasakit na akong talaga kakakain niyan... kaya pag umuuwi kami Pinas nagtatago ako sa asawa ko makakain lang. Iba talaga yung sauce ng nasa kalsada hindi kayang gayahin pag ginawa sa bahay.

Lord, nasaan po ang Filipino store rito na may ganyan?! Bakit sila Ate Pinky at Ate Meeya kahit paano may alternative? Huhuhu!

Makuntento na raw ako mag-laway sa mga kuha mo. :D Thanks ha!

hehe ... dami pala may gusto ng fishballs. pero lam mo, first time ko na-amoy yan i was repulsed. lol. yun pala, masarap pala sya, specially when partnered with the sawsawan! hirap gayahin sawsawan nila ... hubby and i tried countless of times pero di talaga namin makuha yung recipe ng "perfect sawsawan".
make tusok-tusok, ha! :D

thanks for the visit, Jay!
