The bus doors open, passengers going down to take comfort in the public restrooms on the side of the road. And here came, the Manongs & Manangs, selling junkfoods, softdrinks, boiled eggs & salvaro. WOOOOOH WAIT I GOT TO TRY THAT SALVARO!!!!
Shared it with sissy & Coz Miya, they were both surprised when they saw it because in Cebu, salvaro is a round and hard bread.
I found it very Filipino, because I can really taste the “tuba”, used as a rising agent instead of baking powder, that Pinoy’s ingenuity. Overall it taste good and made us full for the 3 hours bus ride from San Carlos City to Bacolod City. I am sharing some of the best scenery on this road trip.
Mai’s Lessons Learned:
Ingenuity makes a difference. I baked a lot and access to supermarkets & stores is easier so I get to use commercial rising agents on my baked goodies. While those Manongs & Manangs of Negros used “tuba”, is a wine extracted from the sap of unopened coconut bud, which is abundant in their place. That ingenuity becomes a source of income for them.
