Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
Imagine a hardboiled egg, pickled kangkong (water spinach), fresh tomatoes, steamed rice and shredded adobo flakes with lots of garlic: Adobo Sulipan at Pancake House, Tutubi's favorite adobo recipe incarnation.
Now costing around P190, quite pricey for the average pinoy meal, adobo sulipan is worth it although at times the preparation may be inconsistent.
the mango crepe is also something to look for as well as their "Best Taco in town" at P70 each
Adobo, the Philippines' "national dish," according to some has far too many versions to be listed but the most popular ones, besides adobo sulipan, are adobo sa gata (coconut milk), adobong matamis (sweet adobo), adobong tuyo (dry), adobong masabaw (soupy), adobo sa pinya (pineapples), and adobo sa kalamansi (philippine lemon).
About the history behind adobo, Tutubi is planning to post about it in the future along with his own adobo recipe. Even the origin behind adobo sulipan, whether it's related to barangay Sulipan in Apalit,Pampanga as part of the famous "sulipan cuisine," needs further research.
Pancake House, not only serves pancakes, but other Filipino specialties, and present in various locations around the Philippines.
