Tokwa’t Baboy

Tokwa at Baboy – A Pinoy classic partner to any soup like lugaw, a typical appetizer (pulutan) and a side dish to any menu. Most people like to have their Tokwa’t Baboy with beer or wine by the side. I’m okey with softdrinks. You can also try root beer float with your tokwa’t baboy. If you like sweet vinegar soy sauce just add more sugar.

Additional cooking tips: Garnish it with spring onions or dahon ng sibuyas, and or kintsay. Its way more delicious..
