*This pandemic has forced us to stay at home. Fortunately, many of us has turned this into a wonderful opportunity to experiment and explore dishes we have not tried. This recipe was sent by a physician who was raised in Manila but now working in the province. As of this writing she stays in a barrio, somewhere in the north and has never gone back to the big city, due to our current health crisis. She loves to travel and cook in her free time.
