Holy week is a season of fasting and abstaining from red meat.
However, if you think fasting is too mainstream but still keep the tradition of not eating red meat, then you always have the following alternatives:
Every Filipino loves ensaymada. Be it with cheese or without, the soft sensation when you chew each bite makes you forget about pork and beef.
Cheap and affordable, buwad is a good alternative to meat but just make sure you dont have hypertension!
A favorite fish dish, escabeches sweet and sour flavor makes it palatable to the Filipino taste. Two thumbs up!
Now is the right time to eat veggies! A nice hot utan bisaya will make your tummy happy and healthy.
There are many varieties of puto being served everywhere–puto bumbong, puto maya, puto diri, puto didto. Whatever happens, this is a must on your what-to-eat list.
A delicacy from Bohol, you usually spread it on sliced bread or you can eat it without accompaniment. Your choice…but I definitely prefer the latter!
Oh budbud, a delicious delicacy delicately wrapped in banana leaf. Some are made in glutinous rice and some in cassava. Whichever you prefer, this one will tickle your taste buds.
Generally served during Christmas, theres no stopping you serving this beloved delicacy on Holy Week. But what makes bibingka special? Is it because of its right amount of sweetness, its burnt color, or because of the banana leaf placed under it?
Definitely one of the best rice delicacies, many crave for biko in every occasion. Anyone whose mama knows how to cook this has the best mama in the world!
The greatest sin anyone can ever commit is failing to serve binignit on Holy Week.
This dish replaces rice as the staple food during Semana Santa.
Dont you ever fail to serve this or your friends and family would hate you eternally.
Do I need to describe how binignit tastes? No need to. 10/10 would eat again.
In this special occasion, I always take time to reflect on the food that I eat.
