Wasay-wasay

Wasay-wasay in its uncooked state

Charcoal-grilled wasay-wasay. Tastes even better than oysters.

Noryangjin Fish Market

This one is an exclusively seafood market. A big one. No such sort exist in the Philippines where seafood here are sold in a specific section of the palengke, or at some corner of the talipapa. So at Noryangjin Fish Market with all its assortment of marine edibles where two-thirds of those I cannot identify, it was a wonderment to be inside, ogling unhurriedly at each edible curiosity, and hearing the din from the collective voices of the fishmongers. Obviously, they can tell that I was just an observer and not a potential customer, but I felt at ease because the ajummas and ajeossis don’t seem to mind, and they seem to understand that it was just a field trip of sort to me.
