I read an interesting story about Buko pie (Young Coconut) pie and that it originated from a city in my hometown of Laguna, Philippines.
Tocino simply means bacon in Spanish. Typically made from pork belly, this dish is usually served for breakfast or brunch. Filipinos usually accompany tocino with rice and egg called To-Si-Log–Tocino, Sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg). The following recipe is my personal rendition…with an extra twist.
Oh those under-the-weather days…this by far is my favorite dish to have, especially when I was little.
