Salty Accompaniment

A couple of condiment samples I have at home from an unknown number of condiment variations in the country.


Batitis (shellfish meat in brine) sold in Tanduay bottle known as lapad


Fish fermented in large clay jars as you can see from the logo of this popular Lingayen brand


Salty sawsawan duo for an appetizing meal. Batitis on the left, bagoong on the right

    That’s interesting. I’ve never seen those before.

    Quite a lot of localized variations out there. Batitis came from Negros Occidental province where oysters in brine is also common.
