"Sweet Dinner"

This is one of my favorite meal whenever i'm in a rush or when i've got nothing to eat. ^0^
I confess that when it comes to food, i tend to be picky.
As much as i devour the meat section, i'm not really a true-veggie holic.

This is what we call here as Tocino - a cured meat product native.
It's derived from spanish and usually made out of pork ( similar to ham and bacon although beef is also used).
It's often reddish in color.
It's this sweet, carmelized, sort of maple in taste.

It's often eaten with rice and fried egg or add some fresh tomatoes on it.
Slang word for it would be : "Tosilog" meaning- "tocino ( cured pork) , sinangag (rice) and itlog (egg)".

The city of Pampanga ( kapamapangans-native) is famous for this food.

  4. In Spain, tocino is mostly a slab of white pork fat. This is a totally different twist!
