Asian Haul 2!!!


So this is the continuing saga of my random trips to Asia Mart :p

Choco Mallows – This is my favorite! This is kinda like the Phillipine version of s’mores. This box has 6 choco mallows (biscuit topped with mallows and coated with chocolate). Really really good.

Knorr Cubes – I bought chicken and pork. These are very common add-ons to Filipino dishes to make chickens and pork even tastier.

Boiled Salted Duck Eggs – In the Philippines, we call this “itlog na pula” (red egg) or “itlog na maalat” (salty egg). They typically dye the shells red to distinguish it from fresh duck eggs. The ones sold here in the US are in boxes and are not dyed. So how do you eat this? Just break the shell and mix it with tomatoes and soy sauce or fish sauce. This is the best side dish for fried fish. It’s not as nasty as “balut”, trust me. What’s balut? Google it and thank the heavens you weren’t born a duck.

Yan Yan – My childhood favorite! This is a Japanese snack and it has bread sticks inside with a little cup full of chocolatey goodness for your dip.

That’s all for now. ‘Til next trip to Asia Mart! 🙂
