: Photohunt:: What isThat? :

If you are not a Filipino then probably you do not know what are these. Ok We Pinoys love that cooked BAGOONG (Shrimp Paste) so much that we can eat it with just about anything. It may look gross and smell bad or pungent esp. for foreigners hehehe but gosh it is the best and tastes oh so good. I like it a bit sweet and spicy.. Yum Yum..

And that fruit is what we call SANTOL, and it is actually in season right now. You can eat it with salt or with that shrimp paste and you can have it for lunch if you want to. Ok I think I am making you hungry right now so i guess you can check my other entry, i'll bet you'll get hungrier!! hehe

Happy Weekend and Happy Hunting !! Join us at Photohunt

i usually just pair the santol with salt ... lol. but am sure it will taste great with spicy bagoong, too!

happy hunting!

Argh! Nangasim ako. We have a santol tree behind the house and its only this year that we tasted the fruits. Every night several fruits fall down on the roof :)

i love santol and have eaten them with various "sawsawan" from the plain salt to patis w/vinegar to soy sauce with vinegar! but i've never had it with bagoong.

i just didn't think they go well but now i'm curious to taste the combination-- only i couldn't! there's no Santol here in the east coast!! I'll have to wait years before I could try one again... oh well. now i'm gonna be craving santol for awhile!! shucks...
