The big box is Maria Cristina Falls and the small box is Agus 6 hydroelectric power plant.
One time during a recent family visit to Iligan, we ate in the home of Hannah's cousins Corrine, Chester, Nico and El-el (kids of my wife's brother Nick). It was the first time I ate baboy sulop (wild boar) and it was delicious. I have no pic of it so let Pumbaa of Disney's Lion King show you how delicious he is. Oink! Oink!
The baboy sulop matched perfectly to another first for me, the suka Pinakurat. A great Filipino dip from Iligan City. It is produced by Greengold Gourmet by blending fermented coconut nectar (tuba), salt, special spices, hot chillies and sweet chillies.
I'm not that fond of hot dips but this is an exception. It smells good, tastes good and gives you a memorable bite while eating what you dipped in it. The bite lasts just enough for you to enjoy and swallow your food and then realize that you want another Pinakurat dip for your next mouthful. Pinakurat is roughly translated as "to startle" or "to surprise."
It comes in different bottle sizes. Only two bottles left at home... huhu.
Pinakurat before and after:
- Left: the secret yummy ingredients settling at the bottom.
- Right: Shaken, but not stirred.
Written sideways on the bottle's label: "Good things come in glass." I agree.
If you want to try it but don't have the time to visit Iligan, go to Market Market at The Fort. It is sold somewhere there. I hope you like it. Happy eating!
