Photo by Ahljhon Miranda of a favorite Filipino breakfast combination. Tuyosilog (tuyo, sinangag, itlog) Dried fish + Fried rice + Fried egg Almusal is the Filipino word for “breakfast.” The native Tagalog word is agahan, from the word aga (“early”).
Photo by Mildred Cruz of Crispy Kangkong served at a birthday party. Kangkong is a semi-aquatic tropical plant that’s a popular vegetable in the Philippines. Its name has been translated into English as swamp cabbage or river spinach. More information and perhaps a recipe after the website upgrade. Please check back. 🙂
In the Philippines, eggs are often plainly eaten boiled or fried. They can be mixed in with ingredients to make sarciado or torta. And of course, they are used in many Filipino pastries and baked goods!
