I am cooking “something” for the first time today. I will reveal it on my next post even if it’s not succesful. To prepare for my ingredients, my husband and I went to the Sidcor Market early this morning.
Established in 2000, some consider Sidcor Market the “Mother of Philippine Weekend Markets.” It was originally located in Cubao, and then transferred to the Lung Center of the Philippines. In 2010, Sidcor then relocated to its current home at Eton Centris.
You can find food, clothes, regional products, plants and furniture. I like that this market has a wide variety of products.
Singkamas is the Mexican Turnip of the Philippines.
Different types of shrimp.
Bubba: ” Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.”
Salmon, seaweeds and some seashells.
Air Plants. I wrote about these plants here.
Giant mushrooms. The lady said these are edible mushrooms.
Gng. Bukid. They are famous for their Challah Bread, Pandesitos and Maja Blanca. Their breads are made with zero preservatives.
