Pasalubong From Quezon Province, p2

Continuing the foods we bought from Quezon last month.

Lucban Longganisa

Lucban Longganisa. It's my favorite longganisa, so it's just right that I take home some. At p140/dozen, I just bought one dozen.

Ka Popoy's Chicharon

Ka Popoy's Chicharon. Chicharon is one of my favorite foods ever, so when I saw this at a store, I bought a pack since it was only p35 per pack. This one is actually from Laguna (based on the label), but because I bought this in Quezon, I consider this one part of the set. I like this chicharon - very crunchy and not too salty.


Panganan. I am not sure if I got the name right, among the foods we took home, this was the only one I didn't buy, these were made by Ria's cousin for her to take home. It tasted like buchi, but it lacked sugar for my taste.


Tikoy. Every New Year's Day, Ria's family would give us a bowl of their homemade tikoy with caramel sauce. Stores in Quezon sells the tikoy without the sauce, and it's already ready to eat. This taste like the tikoy we eat during Chinese New Year.

Polvoron de Mani

Polvoron de Mani. The least favorite food in the bunch, the peanut flavor was too powerful we couldn't appreciate the polvoron anymore.

One lesson learned about this shopping (and the blog posts that came from it) is that I had to list down the manufacturers of the foods. Next time, I will do that.

Anyway, this would probably be the last post about the food themes, I realized the food trips I had were piling up, so starting this coming week, I will be posting food trip stories twice a week - one every Thursdays, and one every Sundays.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
