Pork Ribs and Young Jackfruit Soup


My dad woke up early and went to the market to buy some ingredients for our lunch today.  My mom told me that he will be cooking pork ribs and langka soup.  Langka or jackfruit is a sweet delicious fruit found in tropical countries and luckily Philippines is one of them.  But did you know that young jackfruit can be incorpprated into main dishes?  The most common dish is the ginataang langka or jackfruit in coconut milk.  I love it spicy and paired with fried fish.  However, my dad being a pure blood Ilonggo likes it in soups.  He cooked it with kadios and pork and its equally tasty.

Roasted Hainanese Chicken


I have not yet tasted any Hainanese Chicken and only cooked this dish once about two  or theee years ago.  My family does not like it maybe because the chicken is boiled and we prefer our chicken fried or roasted.  Few weeks ago, I saw a video in facebook on how to cook a one pot chicken Hainanese and it got me drooling.  The dish is so easy to cook and in just under 30 minutes.  However, the chicken, specially the skin is boiled and seems raw.  As I said, I love my chicken fried or roasted.
