Food Trip # 02 : Tinowa

What's the sense of traveling places without sampling their local specialties. Food that makes the place known for and the other way around. This is my Food Trip, where visiting a place is not the same nor complete without eating what do locals are proud of. I will make a blog entries regarding the food I tasted during my travels in this meme so do please visit every Friday and the Food Friday Meme.

My featured menu for today:

in this dish, we chosen Tanigue & curly seaweed(i forgot to ask the name);stewed with leeks.

i admit, i really dont know what the real name for this dish. others say "tinola"; others say its "tinowa", others "tula". maybe its different on each province/town and its grammar. all i know is this is better than a hearty cream soup. i can say that this is one of my comfort food. when we arrived at the place, my pangga insisted on her brother to order the soup, in an instant, i already guessed that she is referring to this one so i said no more.

Town / City : Lapu-Lapu City
Province: Cebu
Resto / Food place : Manna Sutukil, Lapu-Lapu Shrine, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu

Have a Great Friday to all of us Food Friday eaters :D

Dried seaweed kaya ko or yung dried na binasa uli haha sa miso soup! Pero I know this is healthier...tanigue! kamiss naman!

haven't been to Cebu so chances of me having that is slim to none.

do you know of a place where we can try that here in Manila?

The seaweed are called lokut but am not fond of it, am more of the other seaweeds and it's either tinola or tinowa. Lami na!
