Bangus ala Pobre

Bangus ala Pobre is a Filipino dish similar to Bistek Tagalog using milk-fish instead of beef. Bangus ala Pobre is a fish dish where the bangus or milk-fish is lightly fried and simmered in soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic and onions. 

Other calls Bangus ala Pobre Fishtek or Fish Bistek but one thing for sure, this Bangus ala Pobre is nothing pobre (pobre in Spanish means poor) in taste. This dish is so delicious with steam rice and great for pulutan.

Cassava Cake

Cassava Cake is a popular Filipino snack and one of my favorite. This recipe is a little different from the regular Filipino Cassava Cake as it does not uses condensed or evaporated milk. This Cassava Cake recipe is semi-soft, slightly chewy, delicious and a perfect afternoon snack. 

This Cassava Cake is Malay-Chinese inspired and worth a try. It is moist, tender and super delicious. Tapioca flour is added but I don't have it handy so I used rice flour and it worked just well. It gave the Cassava Cake a firmer texture, not too soft and sticky.
