I love Tocilog, it consists of cut up sausage, a fried egg and a heaping scoop of rice. Usually white rice is served in the Philippines…although there are exceptions as each restaurant has it’s own cooks and has their own way of preparing breakfast. I love my plate of Tocilog with a heaping cup of coffee….with plenty of cream and sugar.
In the Philippines rice is served with every meal, so a spoon is always a necessity. I learned the art of eating with two spoons! One spoon is used to hold the rice and the second spoon is used to PUSH the rice onto the first spoon. Here in the states a piece of bread is often used to PUSH food onto a spoon or fork. I suppose many other methods could be used to accomplish the same task, but this method works BEST for me!
My stay in Manila would not have been complete without frequent visits to my favorite fast food establishment, Jollibees. They have the best plate of chicken, rice and spaghetti, and I am looking forward to a return trip back to the Philippines to have a great meal there again!
