ulo ti tilapia by Makan on Mar 12, 2013Fish head, yeah. And it’s fried. And then it’s boiled right in fish sauce broth. Slowly, to extract its flavor, its essence, to meld with the thickening soup. And then the vegetables are put in to join the simmering fried fish head. Broug...



kardis, alukon, sabong-karabasa, kalunay by Makan on Mar 9, 2013Mangantayo manen! come, let’s eat, once all over again, share with me this another dinengdeng, this bugguong-flavored quartet of usual but exquisite Ilokano vegetables.

ubog ti way, rattan bud (heart) by PINAKBET REPUBLIC on Mar 8, 2013Tinuno nga ubog ti way, narekaduan iti kamatis, bugguong ken lasona. (Click photo for a larger view)  It's becoming rare that I see ubog ti way (rattan bud) in my market forays, especially so in Cagayan, so When I chanced upon some bundles of u...



kalalaki nga alukon, "male" alukon by PINAKBET REPUBLIC on Mar 5, 2013Dinengdeng a kalalaki nga alukon with patani, kardis and pallang. Not many folks, even those so-called patneng nga Ilokanos (true-blue Ilokanos) know or are aware that the fruit (or is it flower?) of the kalalaki nga alukon (male alukon [allaeanthu...



alukon ken bagas-kamotig by Makan on Feb 28, 2013Gotta get back to more dinengdengs, more veggies ngarud as is my wont. And now, it’s alukon season, and the first that came into mind when I got an alukon is to pair it with bagas ti kamotig–into a baradibud:   I made it with tarong...



paksiw a dalag ken dinengdeng by Makan on Feb 27, 2013A respite perhaps from my all-dinengdeng, all-nateng feasting, I’d let myself a luxury of having some fat fish for dinner the other day. But not without a dinengdeng to accompany it, of course! This is dalag, also called attasi (in Cagayan) and...



dinengdeng manen! by Makan on Feb 21, 2013Yes, dinengdeng it is. Once again. Once more. At once. Once, and for all. Of course, an Ilokano can’t live by bread or rice alone without his dinengdeng. And so here’s to eternity. And to posterity, let me continue showing and calling for...



a feast of ilokano food exotica... by PINAKBET REPUBLIC on Feb 16, 2013Of course, there's still a sort of exotica when it comes to Ilokano food, whatever being exotic means. And although these are common fares specially in the away or in the barrios/farming communities, it becomes a rare delicacy or exotic even, when th...



red/purple katuday by PINAKBET REPUBLIC on Feb 12, 2013Nalabbasit a katuday. It's February. And it's 14th. Supposedly a lovers' day for all. It's also flowers and chocolate's day, you can't imagine how many tons of cut flowers and chocolate bars may have been gifted upon and consumed on this single day...



papaya, ube, marunggay, pallang by Makan on Feb 10, 2013More on my unending daily dinengdeng escapade, here’s my latest medley of vegetable fruits, leaves and roots. These are plain and simple dinengdeng. No sagpaw or add-on. Just cooked in bugguong and that’s all, with little ginger and onion...
