When we said delicacy, it should be unique, distinct and being copied; however, nothing can replace. Before a food be considered in this category, it must first carry the name of a specific province or region with larger percentage of the locals can easily identify it. Tourists – foreign and even locals – are given with some feedback that this food should be tasted when visiting the place.
The last time I checked, I weighed 58 kilos, still my average weight when I’m in college. Despite the fact that my job is home base and sitting all day in front of the computer, I didn’t gain weight. Maybe, because of my jogging routine with my labrador retrievers and watching calories.
However, if the viand are sisig and kare-kare, forget about counting calories. I don’t mind the dieting if they are served. I will just chow them along with 3-4 cups of rice or until bloated.
It is not bad that in some time, we’ll eat fatty, non-nutritious foods. I don’t recommend fattening food, but it’s recommended that once in a while we’ll treat ourselves.
One of the bad foods I love to chew on is the lechong kawali, it is a deep-fried pork until the skin and fat part become crunchy. I don’t usually cook this as this is really bad for me and you. We only have this about once every two months.
