Happyland meal: Kaldereta a la pagpag
by/George P. Moya Posted 04/11/2015

Smoke fills the kitchen of Norberto Lucion’s eatery. He’s still busy preparing the house specialty, but a few people have asked for his kaldereta.
Norberto is peeling the meat off about a dozen buckets of chicken. They’re part Jollibee chicken joy and part KFC. He says he gets them from a regular supplier.

The buckets of chicken come from a “pagpagan,” a place in the dumpsite of Happyland, where recyclable materials are separated from biodegradables. Plastic spoons and forks, drinking cups, and food cartons, end up being sold at a junk shop. Some of the food in the trash may also end up being “recycled.”
Leftovers from fast food chains are called pagpag, from the Filipino word that means, “to shake off.” Dirt is literally shaken off from food found in dumpsters. They are eaten again. They are also sold. Norberto buys them for P20 (US$0.45) per bucket

Heirloom rice varieties go beyond the usual type of rice we see on our dinner tables. They represent the culture of the Cordilleras and have become the lifeblood of their farming tradition.
According to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), heirloom rice varieties are more flavorful, aromatic, and have exceptional nutritional value when cooked.
The heirloom rice varieties, the product of the terraces, are considered to be an important fixture in the lives of farmers in several areas in CAR.
Staying true to the name, these varieties of rice are passed from generation to generation and are grown by families in their small ancestral lands.

Lumpiang Ubod

If there is one dish that really deserves to be in every Filipino Easter fiesta, it must be the Lumpiang Ubod (Coconut Spring Rolls). The main ingredient is taken from coconut shoots, which lends itself to the easter theme of new life and freshness. The following recipe that I will share here is not original to me, however, be rest assured that I tried to incorporate my own ideas like including buko (young coconut) as one of the main ingredient, and using rice as starch for the spring roll wrapper.

Coconut Water Vs Coconut Milk VS Coconut Oil

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between coconut water, coconut milk, and coconut oil? - Coconuts offer superb nutrition in all its many forms. Coconut meat, juice, milk and oil supplied people who lived in the tropics with a staple, extremely healthy food and drink for centuries. Fortunately, those who live in colder climes can now enjoy the healthy glow people get from coconuts. Coconut water, milk and oil all confer many health benefits to consumers, but it is good to know what each product is, what to expect from it and how to use it in daily life.

Coconut water is good for people with kidney problems. One Filipino doctor claimed: “two glasses of fresh buko juice every day can reduce one’s chance of having kidney or ureter stones.”

”According to an old legend, coconut is God’s gift to the lazy man. “He sleeps in the shade of the tree, is awakened when a nut falls, drinks the milk, and eat some of the meat. He then feeds the rest of the meat to the chickens and cattle, which produce eggs and milk and meat, respectively. The leaves provide thatch for the roof and walls of his coconut hut, and are also woven into hats, baskets and mats.”

Hot Drinks

go to overview

Tablea Tsokolate or Cacao Chocolate

What is tablea tsokolate and what makes this drink distinctive from other hot chocolate?

Tablea is a Spanish word meaning tablet, and tsokolate is a Filipino word meaning chocolate. It is a thick hot chocolate specially made from cacao balls. The tablea can also be a thick disk or flat, and even in square form. But the balls are the most popular form made, and is considered as one of Batangas delicacies.

Look the article with recipe as pdf  HERE

Tsokolateng tablea (Filipino hot chocolate drink)

It’s so funny that when you Google “tablea,” most of the Filipino websites that appear in the search results pages say that tsokolateng tablea translates to “cacao chocolate.” Huh? Chocolate is made from cacao so “cacao chocolate” is redundant. Tablea refers to blocks of cacao which, in Filipino cuisine, are heated with milk to make a hot chocolate drink. My grandparents used to serve this hot drink on Christmas Eve. My mother-in-law introduced me to the Antonio Pueo brand of tablea.

Antonio Pueo’s Chocolate Tableas

Nothing beats a hot rich chocolate especially the ones made the old fashioned way with Antonio Pueo’s Chocolate Tablea used for this chocolate drink.

The story of Antonio Pueo Chocolates has its beginning in historical Intramuros, the old Walled City of Manila in the early part of the 20th Century. Its founder was Jose Maria Pueo, a 17 year old Spanish immigrant who arrived in the Philippines armed with the knowledge of chocolate manufacturing which he learned from his Spanish godfather, who was also a friar.

Thick & Rich Filipino Hot Chocolate (Tablea Tsokolate)

A traditional Filipino holiday drink

Tsokolate eh (cho-koh- lah-teh - eh) or tsokolate-ah (cho-koh-lah-teh-ah) sound like tongue twisters but they are actually two types of a hot chocolate drink in the Philippines.

Hot chocolate is definitely on everyone's comfort food list but for most Filipinos. I presume, nothing is as comforting as a cup of our native hot Tsokolate (chocolate, sometimes called Tsokolate Eh or Tsokolate Ah), made from ground Tablea or Cacao Chocolate Discs/Tablets. Traditionally served on Christmas and New Years' Eves but is also available all year round

Hot Chocolate - Cacao Filipina

A taste of Filipino history in a cup of hot chocolate was the favored drink during the Golden Age of Old Manila, Philippines. Introduced by the Spaniards in the 17th Century, "Tsokolate Eh" became the most favored breakfast and snack drink among the 'Illustrado' class and eventually became one of the most sought after hot drinks by the masses. Now available through Julian Gourmet Corp. and/or its outlets and distributors across Metro Manila, Japan and Europe. Mr. Martinez can be contacted through

To the hardy-drinking rural folk, lambanog is "THE" Philippine alcoholic beverage – the arrack of the masa

is wine made from coconut. Lambanog is famous for its potency that normally carries about 80 to 90 proof variations. It is mostly produced in the Quezon Province, Philippines. It has been passed down throughout generations of coconut plantation farmers. The process involves collecting the sap from the coconut flower, similar to rubber tree tapping. The sap is then cooked and fermented to become tuba, a popular coconut toddy. The tuba is then distilled to make lambanog.

Lakan Lambanog, regal take on old brew

Lambanog's regal spin-off - From humble beginnings to a global stage. Lambanog goes international with this Batangas-made world-class product.

BASI comes from sugarcane extract and samak, a plant commonly grown in the Ilocos region.

The juice from sugarcane stalks collected and boiled in large, open ketles. The brew is poured into earthen jars (burnays) and once it reaches room temperature, the samak leaves, bark and fruit are added. The mixture is stirred and poured into a jar that is tightly covered with banana leaves to allow fermentation. After the aging period, the basi is then transferred to bottles. Basi is the official drink of the Guling-Guling festival merrymakers because of its enervating effect.
