Pinoy gastronomy - kasiyahan or napakasama

Pinoy gastronomy – kasiyahan or napakasama

Pinoy gastronomy – kasiyahan or napakasama (enjoyment or atrocious)? For our Sunday lunch we went to a nicely identified cafe on our minor island. We ordered grilled fish and BBQ rooster. What you see in above photo is what they contact a BBQ hen.

For this roadkill we payed PHP 190.00. It consisted of about 80% bones and bone fragments. About 50 grams were dry hen meat. Estimate! 3,800 Pesos for a single kilogram of hen meat, that’s rip-off. On the area market a thoroughly dressed chicken is sold at PHP 125 to as considerably as PHP 150 for every kilo. My chicken did value 25 moments the current market selling price. The only beer accessible experienced been heat San Mig Lite. The Coke of my husband or wife also had relatively a tropical temperature.

It is really a pity since the cafe is in a very nice position, our server was pleasant and joyful as normally.  It is also a pity simply because our authorities invested several several thousands pesos to go to London to market tourism on our minor island and back again house they market this roadkill.

You could say, this is Filipino fashion, this is Pinoy gastronomy. If you do not like, eat someplace else. Mistaken, Pinoys also want to get food stuff for their cash. The only, seriously only excuse I can locate is the simple fact that the Television set is just across the kitchen area. Nowadays at midday time Manny Pacquiao knocked down Chris Algieri at the very least 6 moments. The prepare dinner, in the heath of the fight, may well have done the identical with my chicken. Roadkill or Overkill?

Bahala na!
