    There's a seller in our village that sells those tiny squid, just like in the Abe restaurants. It's smaller than the ones you see at the supermarkets. But, it's not available all the time. They sell on a Facebook group called Yummy home kitchen.

    Chanced upon some in Farmers when we went there to buy food for Noche Buena. Baby squid in garlic and olive oil! Sooo yummy!

    Mm...Iloilo style, perfect beer match:

    Instead of chili powder which does not taste great, I’d substitute it with dried red pepper flakes, same one as Yellow Cab Pizza uses as condiment for their pizza. Whenever I dine there, I’d ask for extra packets for home use. SM Hypermart sells them (big resealable plastic pack from Vietnam, kept in airtight container). Great for anything when you want some heat.

    hello guys, do you know where "Eat Fresh" gets their balls? hahaha
    specifically their squid balls? grocery squid balls are not so good.
    I think I have tried them all but nothing comes close to Eat Fresh's squid balls.

    At Hitop, i Quezon Avenue cor Edsa usually get Rose Brand (Thailand) of fishballs, squidballs. It is much better than local ones.

    Anyone knows where to buy Old Bay Seasoning and Zatarains Crab Boil Spice Mix?

    Saw some online but I find it overpriced.

    Hello fellow foodies! I'm looking for Morton's Kosher salt. I bought a box from Rustan's supermarket several years ago but I could not find it anymore. Do you guys know where to get them?
