Ulam Craze

My family went to Grab a Crab sometime last month to try their specialty in the house. We were all so excited to try out their foodies goodies and we were able to fill our tummies with a nice fine dining experience.

Let me just share to you what we had.

Kare-kare

Yummy kare-kare, it was so creamy and saucy and the bagoong was also very delicious, I love kare-kare really, just minus the talong and sitaw, teehee.

shrimp veggies with green peas

This one's a favorite of the kids, it's shrimp with green peas and other veggies. Also contains cashew nuts, yummy. It was not a boring dish, but rather a really exciting dish because of the half-cooked veggies which makes them crunchy.

kinilaw

The men's favorite, kinilaw. Of course, General Santos is the tuna capital of the country and so this is the course that made the men drool.


And this is the favorite of the elderlies, sinigang na tuna. Not so sour, and not so salty, a little bland though but good for the heart because of the less salt.

So there, what's your favorite ulam? Share naman diyan...

I like all the ulam in this post. I'm matakaw kase. =) I don't eat kinilaw until I tried that one when I was in Gensan or Marbel. Sarap. I also liked grilled buntot ng tuna. I have a lot of favorites, to include ginataang hipon, kare kare, etc.

generally, i love Filipino food, especially those cooked by my mom. But when it's kare-kare, sinigang na sugpo, kilawin (mom's version), and itlog na pula with kamatis at bagoong, i tend to eat around three servings. hehe. :)

Alam mo laging nababanggit ng mga pinsan ni misis na taga GenSan tuwing umuuwi dito ang Grab a Crab. Palagi daw silang kumakain dyan.

Ang paborito kong ulam at buttered shrimps, sinigang na hipon, halabos na hipon (actually lahat ng luto ng hipon), steamed crabs, crabs na niluto sa miswa (lahat din ng luto ng crabs), grilled bangus, grilled porkchops, crispy pata, lechon kawali, lechon paksiw, ginisang sitaw at kalabasa sa bagooong, atbp!

Alice Teh said…

Jan said…
I'd go for the shrimp veggies and kare-kare. On second thought - can I have it all. And extra rice please? :)
REDLAN said…
Halos lahat ng veggies gusto ko. at tsaka chicken menu. karne lang ang medyo hindi ko gusto lalo na kapag maamoy mo siya.

sarap higupin ang sabaw. feeling ko pinapawisan ako habang nakatingin sa nilapag mong pagkain
teeni said…
