Mabuhay!

A dear friend of mine introduced me to Filipino food several years ago, and I instantly loved it! I first tried “real” Filipino food at Bautista’s at Pearlridge Mall. My friend suggested I order the pusit (squid) guisado. That became my ultimate favorite! I tried the pinakbet, which is like a vegetable dish, with meat or shrimp. If you like bitter melon, this is the dish for you!

Did you know that squid is a popular ingredient in the Philippines, and good source of protein?
