Litratong Pinoy#62 Almusal (Breakfast)

What's the best breakfast for a Pinoy like me? Nothing fancy, really. I just need newly-cooked rice (never mind if it was overcooked as can be seen in the photo) and fish cooked in three different ways: deep fried, sauteed with onion, garlic and ginger and the ever-favorite salted, dried and fried daing. There is even a coconut vinegar dip nearby. No spoon nor fork needed as Pinoys can survive eating barehanded anywhere.

It's eating time!

Pilipino:
Ano ba'ng pinakamagaling na almusal para sa isang Pinoy na kagaya ko? Simple lang. Kailangan lang ng bagong lutong kanin (hindi baleng nasunog nang konti gaya ng nasa litrato) at isda na niluto sa tatlong iba't ibang paraan: pinirito, iginisa sa bawang, sibuyas at luya at ang walang kamatayang paboritong piniritong daing. May sawsawang niyog na suka pa sa malapit. Hindi na kailangan ang kutsara o tinidor at nakakakain naman tayong mga Pinoy nang nakakamay.

Kainan na!!


This photo was taken in Siargao before we took off going to Sohoton cove. It was a good thing that we had a big breakfast because our lunch was done at 2pm already. We had so much fun we forgot to eat.

Pilipino:
Kuha ang litratong ito sa Siargao bago kami umalis papuntang Sohoton cove. Buti nalang, marami ang kinain naming almusal dahil alas-dos na kami nakapananghalian. Sobrang nag-enjoy kami at nakalimutang kumain kasi.

I miss filipino food, specifically breakfast. It has to be pandesal for me. I love the smell and taste of pandesal, next to a cup of strong barako coffee ^_^

sarap ng totong :-) enjoy ngang kumain ng nakakamay. Dito sa Bangladesh, nakakamay din silang kumain, pag nakina H ako, nagkakamay din ako kaso hindi daw ako marunong, kumpara sa kanila na hassler sa pagkamay hehehe, kaya binibgyan na nila ako ng kubyertos tuwing kakain.

magandang araw!

nagtataka lagi ang mga amerikano at cuban co-workers ko how we Pinoy's can eat rice in the morning... sabi nila parang ang bigat daw sa tyan. Sabi ko kinagisnan na natin ito.

Marites said...

ohmygums: actually, in some articles that I've read, eating a heavy breakfast is much preferable than eating heavy dinner coz you get to burn the food you ate easily after breakfast.

there's nothing like pinoy breakfast...and the best part is that we can eat with just our bare hands :)
