Post Valentine lunch courtesy of Amy, who recently moved from Asian Development Bank (ADB) to The German Embassy (DED - Maybe you'll asked why is it DED, I don't know too). Amy planned and realized a Chinese treat since she's Chinese, who missed this food after staying in Germany the whole holiday season.
I waited for ages, cooking process, Chinese fried rice (if you're Chinese, pronounce this as 'pla-lies') scent, sticky dugyot feeling because of heat and smoke..
And here's a brown Yang Chao, the kind my dad likes.
I don't know what this is, but it tasted like this rare Lugaw recipe from Batangas (?), the oily surface confirmed it.
Oh and who knew (maybe all of you except me), this drink with big sticky balls came from China?
It's called "Sago" in The Philippines, started as traditional dirty street drink, ventured as a branded summer drink (eg: Zagu) and ended up as a flop after some year/s. However, original dirty street Sago keeps conquering the thirsty esophagus of a typical Filipino worker.
Many of this dirty drinks are sweetened with a help of a pinch of "Magic Sugar." one small pinch is enough for a whole 5 gallon container drink. Yay Cancer!!!
