Homesick Therapy: Kamayan

best filipino food

The US is becoming my home because I am with my husband but every now and then I miss my home country, the Philippines. The feeling of frustration, getting upset for no reason and being moody is what happens when I am homesick. I knew it was not time to go to the Philippines yet so I have to do something.

So I went to the Asian market, spent about $100 to get all the ingredients that I needed to make kamayan food. My mood changed from depression to extreme excitement and happiness. You should do the same too when you start feeling it.

Best filipino food- Tortang Talong

Best filipino food- Tortang Talong

Tortang Talong is a great dish for omnivores and vegetarians!  It is kind of like a Filipino style omelette.  It is created with char grilled eggplant that is dipped or smothered in beaten egg and then fried until it is golden brown. The texture and flavor of the tortang talong is actually like meat.  The dish packs in the flavor and gives a crisp, mouth watering bite when fresh off the grill.
