Bok Choy Two Ways

Cleaning, Cooking and Eating Head-On Shrimps (Halabos Na Hipon)

Shrimps/Prawns cooked this way is the ultimate rich people food back in the Philippines. The bigger, the better. All I know is that it costs more than beef, chicken, fish and pork. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if house parties are judged by […]
