Memory Recall: Ngo Hiong at Puso

Cebu is probably the best source for my comfort foods

Eh kasi naman eleven years din akong tumira dun

So basically sa Cebu nabuo ang love affair ko with food

Napagusapan na natin ang Ding How Dimsum

This time, let’s talk about Ngo Hiong at Puso

Ngo Hiong is actually deep-fried (to a crisp) lumpia

They are stuffed with meat and vegetables

They become the heavenly roll when dip in spicy sauce

Hindi sya ngo hiong kung walang maanghang at malasang sawsawan

Puso is a heart-shape stuffing filled with rice

The wrap is actually young coconut leaves

Ang tawag dito sa ingles ay Hanging Rice

Puso is a favorite of busy and mobile eaters

They are less messy kasi and easy to dispose

At madali ring i-dip sa anumang sawsawan

They are great partners for any barbecued item

I remember buying our ngo hiong from a friend’s store in Guadalupe

Unahan talaga kami lalo na kapag mainit pa ang ngo hiong

Keber na nga kung hindi nakapaghugas ng kamay eh

Ngo Hiong and Puso are both affordable then

Ngayon even with twenty-five pesos, busog ka na

This time, I tried this carenderia along Pelaez Street

Malapit ito sa Elicon Hotel which is near University of San Carlos

As expected, pig-out uli ako with my comfort food

Uber sa sarap talaga and it brought back many good memories.

Mega-tulo ang pawis.  Siksikan sa carenderia. Maliit na upuan.

Memory recall.

Memory restored.
