Why people are going back to their hometown?

Publish On 2016-05-23 , 2:54 PM

Ever wonder why we have a special yearning for specific cuisines that make us want to go back to our respective hometowns? Whether you are from the northernmost part of the country or from the south, you always have that favorite dish in mind which stands out forits distinct taste only our doting grandmothers could possibly offer. Some of those all-time,hometown favorites are:

1. Adobo

With its basic ingredients like soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, laurel leaves, adobo occupies a hallowed spot as a favorite dish to serve in every household. While this indigenous recipe lends itself to many variations, we still prefer the version prepared at home. No wonder why most Filipinos consider adobo as our national dish.

2. Sinigang

Another favorite recipe served at home is this tangy viand served in such variants as Sinigang na Bangus, Pork Sinigang and other interesting versions. The more sour the soup, the stronger the appeal to our gustatory faculty. No wonder, countless cooks keep their respective secrets in making its soup sourer, and they are all winners.

3. Kare-kare

Kare-kare is always a restaurant best-seller. With its rich peanut sauce, who can resist its delectable flavor? A local fare with a delicate combination of meat and veggies, kare-kare only requires a tinge of shrimp paste to perk up its flavor.

4. Nilagang baka

Our penchant for soups galore goes on all-time high with this local cuisine that is usually made tastier with black pepper and a hint of fish sauce. No wonder we always include Nilagang Baka in our list of favorite dishes. And though the preparation is simple, it requires patience to tenderize the beef.

5. Pochero

A well-loved stew that we got from the Spanish colonizers is Pochero. It may not be as common as the dishes mentioned above, but is undeniably one of the most requested recipes whenever we visit our hometowns. One ingredient that would make you remember Pochero is the tolerably sweet plantain (saba).

All these recipes bring a homey feel and beyond the simplicity of taste, we can’t help but crave for Filipino authentic flavors. Indeed, the real magic of a delightful cuisine is a loving hand of a mother or grandmother who painstakingly puts it together for an unforgettable hometown fare of pure gastronomic pleasure.
