Offal in the Market

Offal availability in wet markets isn’t uncommon as consumption of offal dishes in the country is very common. I had beef guts in Pangasinan as beef pinapaitan is a regular fare in that province.

Not a gourmet food but an everyday food in the country. Offal dishes such as dinuguan, bopis, papaitan/pinapaitan, isaw barbecue, sinanglaw, goto lugaw etcetera

Casio (Shellfish)

The girl eats the foot of this shellfish as soon as her grandmother pulls it from the sand in the shallow waters of Tondol beach in Anda Island.
The granny calls this edible mollusk as “casio”. So it’s casio for their dinner (sans the tails) by cooking it in the pot in low fire to make a soup of it from its own water.

Girl snacking on the “tail” (as they call it) fresh from the sea. Perfect for raw food advocates
