Maliputo Served Sinigang-Style

Just like the tawilis, maliputo is a fish that is harvested from Taal Lake.  The maliputo is seasonal, however, so if you see it on a menu at a restaurant in Tagaytay, you may want to check for availability first.

On rainy nights (or cold summer nights), you might want to try it sinigang-style: a sour broth with lots of fresh veggies. You can have some over at Mer-Ben in Tagaytay City.

Mamarang Soup: A Local Rainy-Day Favorite

In #Amadeo, it is a common practice to gather wild #mushrooms or “mamarang” after it rains. Now readily available in local #markets, these ‘shrooms are cooked in a variety of ways, but usually #tinola style: as a soup with #ginger, #greenpapaya, and #sili leaves.

It looks like a Civil War is about to happen in our kitchens!

As a nod to the hit Marvel Cinemas superhero movie, we’ve found this meme making the rounds on social media. Quite timely as well, since we’re figuring out what to have for lunch.

So what’s it going to be for you? Adobo or Sinigang?
Ano Ang Pambansang UlamFrom the Facebook page of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts:

Katuwaan lang mga kababayan, kung magkakaroon ng pambansang ulam, ano ang pipiliin mo, Adobo o Sinigang?

UPDATE: Bumoto rin sa #KulturaPoll sa Twitter:https://twitter.com/NCCAOfficial/status/732719644293763072

#InstaKultura #HeritageMonthPH

(For us here in Tagaytay Living, it’ll definitely have to be adobo! #TeamAdobo all the way!)
