:Listening to the Bluejay's game and needed a Canadian* snack

 

7am french fries smothered in chicken adobo 'gravy' w/ melted cheese.

 

I'm calling it Pinoy Poutine.

 

Atchara pickles and a (spiked) papaya shake.

 

Excellent snack

 

 

*Yes, I'm aware that Toronto's not in Quebec

Its OK poutine is now considered a Canadian food even if its origins are in Quebec. Quite a few poutinerires (yes that's what they call places that specialize in poutine) in the Toronto area. Not quite as good as Montreal mind you but still damn good.

 

But I have 2 questions for you. Where did you get a suitable cheese for your poutine since all cheese I've had in the Phil's tastes like oily plastic, and 2 why the heck are you listening to a Blue Jays game? I don't think people in Toronto even listen to grapefruit league Jays games anymore!

If you're accustomed to the taste of regular dick then the difference is mainly aesthetic.

who'd of thought that leftover spareribs, 10 days in the fridge, would still be good? i would have, and did, yesterday. today i can tell you i was wrong.

Spotted Dick is actually scrumptious with custard.  You are making my mouth water.  But rice pudding is a great snack too and rice is more readily available here.

 

PS:  is that can of Spotted Dick available in Philippines?

Seems to me that I can picture in my mind seeing it in a supermarket here in the Philippines. Might just be recalling seeing it in the states.

 

If I see it again, I'll let you know.

The Kopiko truck that sells wholesale to the sar-sari stores dropped by.

 

I buy their Cappuccino mix. (The San Mig one super-sucks.)

 

Bought a few boxes of the beng-beng chocolate wafer bars from Indonesia.

they're okay. kinda.

 

The Kopiko Mini Coffee candies are great though; bought a 390-count jar for 190 pesos.

But they're not a snack, I guess, being a candy, so a little off-topic

 

They also sell the oatmeal drinks with corn kernels.

um, what is/are it/they? looks like granola that's been walked on.

 

did you pay cash or just pay a little bit each day at exorbitant interest rates?

 

also, did you check the expiration date?

 

is navrattan cheaper in mumbai and if so will someone send me a crate.

 

could you center-cross the exact location of the shop on googlemaps with gps coordinates.

 

and advise on taxi fares to this shop from all the major shopping malls and hotels.

Someone told me there's a retired expert sayongsong maker living about a 7km hike from me back in the bush.

 

Any excuse for a walkabout.

 

Gonna walk in this weekend and see if they'll make me up a few hundred.

The cones look real similar to the ones I roll up for my little native tobacco cigars.

Mother-in-law just brought me three kilos of little sun-dried anchovies

 

most of which I'll pack in olive oil for pizzas.

 

But am snacking on a few handfuls now

 

dipping 'em in Korean GoChuJang (red chili paste)

 

and hitting a few shots of lambanog to wash 'em down.

 

Excellent snack.
