I was trying to show Gene a picture if Sisig Fries and of course Xanga is still acting up. So I'm posting this instead.
The caption for Sisig fries (I've never heard of this) reads:
Sisig is a "labour of love" dish. Offal meat (pig's ears and snout) has been boiled, grilled and chopped into fine pieces. Marinated in lemon, vinegar and spices. Topped with Lechon Kawali (pork belly), garlic lemon ailoli and crispy fries.
Some time ago, I visited my cousin and had:
Lumpia (spring rolls). These weren't home made but I couldn't stop eating them.
It's hard to describe the flavour - but it has a rich almost a mild shrimp taste. The sauce is ladled over rice noodles. The sauce was made from scratch and apparently it took many hours. The orange / yellow colour is from Annatto seeds and the sauce has pork / shrimp and some veggies. I had multiple servings.
The whole dish is then topped with hard boiled eggs, chicharon (pork rinds), lemon, green onions, deep fried garlic and I think fried scallions. Drizzle with fish sauce to taste.
For dessert, I had this and I thought it was called halo halo. I Googled it just to see if I got it right but the other halo halo dishes had ice cream. The one I had didn't. The base is coconut milk and evaporated milk. The green and red strips I think are from tapioca?
That's all folks.
