Thanks to Ritche for getting me a bottle of spicy tuyo flakes from Herb’s N’ Spice! It’s salty, spicy, and garlicky!!! Ahhhh, rice please! But what I like best is the fact that it’s meant for lazy eaters – no more fish bones!

Found time to cook today despite feeling a little unwell. Garlic rice, creamy scrambled eggs, and gourmet tuyo from Vreneli … a simple yet filling meal. 🙂

Yey for friends who give you food! Thank you for this, Martina! This homemade spicy tuyo came all the way from Bacolod! The tuyo is already shredded, so it’s much easier to eat compared to other gourmet tuyo brands. Best paired with newly cooked rice! I find it a bit pricey, though, at P200 a can, and you’ll need to pay for the shipping cost as well. Ah well, when you or someone you know is in Bacolod, make sure to buy a can or more! 😀

Aside from their famous cheesebread & Spanish bread, L.A. Bakeshop also offers savory pasalubong, including jars of gourmet tuyo. It tastes like daing, but the saltiness is just right. It’s good enough, but the best gourmet tuyo for me is still from Good Shepherd! 🙂

I was supposed to eat Good Shepherd’s gourmet tuyo on its own, but when I sampled a piece, I knew this had to be eaten with RICE. It’s so good, as in “tirik mata” good! It has vinegar, garlic, black pepper, siling labuyo, and oil. Argh ang sarap, promise! Better buy a jar or more (P120/jar) whenever you’re in Tagaytay (not sure if they have this in Baguio).
