BISTEK KABAW - carabeef steak I found in Brgy. Caminto, Inopacan, Leyte. Carabeef is a status symbol in the province. Those who can afford to have them as part of their handaan or mels are said to be affluent. Kawawang kabaw mauubos na sila. #BeastFriend #kabaw #kalabaw #carabao #PhilippineBuffalo #farmbeast #carabeef #karnesakabaw #karnengkalabaw #exotic #exoticmeat #neat #karne #bistekkabaw #bistekkalabaw #bisteg #Inopacan #VisayanFood #Leyte #Visayandish #meatPh #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #EdgiePolistico

TINAPA NA MANGKO prepared and sold by a Maguindanaon from Datu Sinsuat, Cotabato. Mangko is a.k.a. pirit in Cotabato, tulingan in Tagalog. Tinapa is smoked fish. The bamboo skewered fish has those slits on its side for the meat to get evenly cooked and the smoky flavor to sip in. While grilling, the fish is basted with achuete oil with turmeric extract and seasonings. #tinapa #tinapangmangko #tinapangpirit #tinapangtulingan #tinapangisda #tinapanan #smokedfish #smoked #maguindanaon #FililipinoFood #maguindanaonfood #Cotabato #Mindanao #Muslim #foodphotography #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #EdgiePolistico

INUYAT - of Nueva Ecija and Bulacan. It's a boiled sugarcane molasses. Too sticky like rugby cement. Often used to sweeten matamis na ginataan and fruit jams. It's about to become the balikutsa. Traditionally sold in emptied milk cans. . "KASING-TAMIS MO'Y INUYAT. PAKIPOT MO'Y SOBRA LAANG. INUYAT KA NGANG TULUYAN." . You have to muscle a scoop of it. It will surely give you a good fight to get enough out from the can. Now find those dumbbells first. #inuyat #sugarcanemolasses #sugarcanesyrup #sweetener #philippinefoodillustrated #settingfootprints #nofilter #foodphotography #PinoyFood #edgiepolistuco #MyStudio #matamisnaginataan #jam #syrup #molasses #PhilippineFood

HALEYANG UBE /HALAYANG UBE. My first time to make halayang ube. It has no additional binder, which means no glutinous rice or cassava starch. Just 100% steamed purple yam. The other 2 ingredients are condensed milk and cheddar cheese. It turns out great in taste and the milk brighten the color. Garnished with ashitaba leaves (fresh sprout) and plumbago flower. All edible. #halayangube #ube #MyKindOfCooking #AllAboutPinoyRecipes #IcanCookNow #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #haleyangube #edgiepolistuco #purpleyam #ubehalayacheese #foodphotography #tastyfood #MyRecipe #PhilippineFood #PinoyFood #plumbago #blueflower #AshitabaLeaf #Ashitaba #MyStudio

PIPINONG IHALAS - (wild cucumber, sc.tific name: Melothria pendula, Linn.) of Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental is strikingly similar in size, shape, color, and taste (yes, I tried it) to that of pipinong gubat or pipinong ligaw of Bulacan and Silang, Cavite. So it grows all over the archipelago. I found this also in Inopacan, Leyte last summer. Last June this was served in Siglo's heirloom salad at View Park Hotel in Tagaytay City. To the wonder of today's Pinoys in the provinces, they do not eat this. They do not know this is edible. But their old folks are picking this along the way and took as their snack. My dear friend, Jose Benigno Salvador , a food historian, once shared a post that the Katipuneros of Bulacan forage on this while trekking the terrains of Bulacan. Here's what an article says about the cuke and foliage of this tiny cucumber: "According to the “chemical-bromatologic” analysis of this plant carried out in the present work, this vegetal species under study constitutes a source of water, vitamins, minerals and, amazingly, also proteins. The fruits of this plant, despite its reduced size, has a pleasant sweet flavor and are edible for humans. Besides, its foliage is given to livestock as forage. For this reason, this “wild cucumber” could be an additional nutritional alternative for men and animals.” "They say it is 12.6% protein, 16.30% fiber and 56.8% carbohydrates. They also say the entire plant is good for ruminants. Propagation is by seed and cuttings." #Melothripendula #wildcucumber #cucumber #pipinonggubat #pipinongligaw #pipinongihalas #pipino #wildvegetable #wildplant #purgative #salad #pickle #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #PhilippinesIllustrated #SettingFootprints #edgiepolistico
