After our plane landed in Manila, I only had one thought in my mind: food! The four-hour plane ride and the two-hour delay were a bit exhausting. I was thinking about eating some Filipino food. As good as the Korean street food that we’ve recently blogged about, I was also craving for some warm soup and vegetables that are native to the Philippines. Thus, John made some!
John has been talking about Fish Kusido for quite some time now. We just weren’t to make it because one ingredient will always fail to be present in the grocery. This time, though, everything is in there and the timing is just perfect!
It didn’t come as a surprise to me that I will love this fish soup! If you have been reading Rice N Dine for a while, you will know my undying love for Sinigang. This is quite similar to it because of the sour broth but since they have different ingredients (Sinigang uses tamarind and Kusido uses calamansi), the variation also is wonderful.
Let us know if you get the chance to try this! Hope you enjoy it as much as we certainly did!
