Great resource  thanks !

 

I had two new things I had never eaten in the Phils before in June and July.  Chesas and flounder.   If you havent had it  chesas is an orange fruit with a big brown seed - tastes like sweet potato  -   Saw and bought the first flounder I had ever seen at the Iba palenke,   been lots of places in the phils and I always love to check out the fish markets but I never saw it before.  Great grilled over charcoal.

Flounder and sole are basically the same thing, and halibut is a kind of flounder (a very large kind), so you have likely had flounder (of some variety) before. Flounder is one of the most common fish species in the ocean (with many different varieties), and are found from the Arctic to the Antarctic Oceans, in fact in all oceans, at all ocean temperatures, and at all depths (from tidal pools to the deep ocean trenches).

thanks good to know.   I have caught them and eaten often on the East coast of the usa,  one time we caught 200 pounds in a tidal river in Virginia,  Just the first time to see them in the Philippines.  The night before I had been chatting with my nephew about fish prices there - he asked  what was the price of flounder  - I thought well I had never seen one there in the phils  - the next day we went to Iba and there was one in the whole market that I purchased for 160 pesos a kilo .  Neng had never seen one before too growing up and living near Manila.

Lechon isn't roasted pig. Lechon just means roasted, and can refer to any meat that has been roasted. Roasted pig is lechon baboy, and it is a whole pig roasted on a spit (not split).

 

Humba is lechon baboy that has then been stewed for a long time in seasonings. It has basically been cooked twice, which is why it is so flavorful and tender. They usually only use the pork belly portion of the lechon baboy for making humba, but any cut can be used.
