Salted Dried Fish

I would prefer salted dried fish over salty processed canned goods to go with rice for breakfast.

Batwan

This fruit from a tree is used as souring ingredient by crushing it like how you crush a garlic then add it in fish paksiw, tinolang isda, kansi etc
Batwan is common in Panay and Negros and I recently found out that this is also common in Masbate.
