Most Requested Filipino foods, in the "We Buy, you cook" or Paluto Style Restaurants

Dining in several paluto restaurants

Whether in MOA or just in Cubao, though with different set of friends, whenever we chose to dine-in in a "Paluto" restaurant, the following viands are always included in the groups' top menu choices. Fresh fish in Sour Broth, Grilled fish, Sauteed Shrimp etc. If you are a fellow filipino, will you order the same? for those not from Philippines, in case you visit our country, may this serves as guide for you.

Seafood in Tamarind Broth (Sinigang)

Fish Sinigang
Fish Sinigang

Sinigang or Sour broth

Fish or Shrimp in Sour broth is one of the most requested filipino dish in a "Paluto" restaurant (http://hubpages.com/hub/Dining-in-you-buy-We-Cook-DAMPA-style-or-Paluto). Tamarind is commonly used to make the broth sour by first boiling it, then mash then to be added on the boiling Fish,Shrimp or even pork.  You can make life easier,by  using an instant Tamarind brothin powder instead, which is always available in all leading groceries ans supermarket.

This is good and very healthy because aside from the seafood as the main ingredients, this included delicious and nutritious vegetables like, Okra, gabe or Taro, Kangkong, Tomato, Onions and Labanos, Fresh fish, shrimp or even pork is best with this.

Grilled fish Mostly Yellow fin or Tuna

Grilled or Inihaw

 Grilled fish, can either be Yellow pin, Tuna or any other fish of your choice. The fish is first marinated  (soaked in soy sauce and Calamansi or Lemon mixture), then grilled.

Grilled Stuffed Squid

Stuffed with mixed tomatoes, Onions, Salt and Pepper

 Also marinated then stuffed with vegetable mixture, then grilled shortly.

Grilled buttered Blue Marlin

Marinated and Grilled in butter

 Marinated then grilled and wiped with butter alternately using a small paint brush..

Calamares

Deep fried

 Soaked in a batter of egg, flour, salt and pepper. then deep fried in a very hot oil

Halabos na Hipon (Pan Fried or Sauteed)

Sauteed in garlic

 I don't know how they cook this in the "Paluto" restaurant, but I cook this Halabos na hipon this way:   I boiled it with less than a cup of clear soft drinks (7up or Sprite) set aside, then sauteed garlic in butter, then add the boiled shrimp...

Mango. Tomato Salad with Bagoong (Shrimp paste)

The best side dish

The most popular side dish in a native restaurant, and best appetite boaster. This is best with Grilled Seafood and Halabos.
