The Ilocos Norte Festival is on a December 15, Saturday, by the way, not Sunday....


yep, noted. thanks.:-)

Burnt Lumpia

Wow, it looks like it's going to be a great event. I wish I lived in the Phils so I could check it out. Is this an annual event?


Thanks for posting that! I will unfortunately miss the market by a week, but I will make sure that mother stocks up on the longganiza, sukang iloko, and anything else that looks good. . .

Not to mention marc medina's enseimada (vbg), of which there is but one left in my California freezer.

thank for the heads up. i brought my whole family and they enjoyed the experience thoroughly.

their empanadas were amaaaaazing.

crunchy piping hot with the soft egg and longganisa inside.

its a shame they werent selling the jars though.

were you there? i saw a big white man with an SLR and wondered if i should thank him. ;)

thanks again!


Jay P - we were indeed there, though I'm not sure Dave would appreciate being described as a 'big' white man. Unless by 'big' you meant 'tall'. ;-)

pilinut - we have some Medina ensaimada in our near future. :-)


Thank you again for the heads-up. Mother went to the market on my behalf, and has around a kilo of Ilocano longganiza waiting for hubby and me when we arrive Friday night. It will be a tough call on Saturday morning--wolf down the longganiza first, or head to the Salcedo Market straight away!

Since you have ensaimada in your near future, are you meeting up with any lechons, too? I'm expecting a really good one to show up at Sunday dinner. I'd be happy to share my lechon sources with you if you ever want them.


pilinut - enjoy your longganiza! We're also expecting to come eye to eye with a lechon on Sunday. The PhI is a fine (and fattening) place to spend Xmas. :-)

jay p

big as in six feet plus- not rotund ;)

would tall and strapping be a more accurate description? :D


Jay - I don't know about accurate, but surely preferred. ;-0
But Dave's not 6 ft ... so maybe it was another big white man with an SLR!
