Liempo Pakunswelong Bobo

My second time eating a not so delicious liempo.
Liempo Pakunswelong Bobo

It was my Lola's hand holding the Mang Tomas sauce together with the liempo I bought.

Instagram before eating? By the way, I don’t know what instagram is since I’m lost in trends. Memoir before feast. I bought this one in front of Bauang Market hoping to have some hot liempo for dinner. I walked a long path and passed a lot of ihawan but find only one who sells liempo. I don’t want lechon manok.

Appetizing? I should have known by the time I saw the meat, the stall or roaster maybe. I don’t know how to call it. You know the house like where they grille the chicken and meat. What you see is what you get. I almost regret buying it. It costs P170 including Mang Tomas in sachet. Cheaper compared the one I buy in city which range around P180 – 200.  I’ll give it 1/5. Mapagtyatyagaan naman siya konti.

Some part of the meat seemed deprived of flavor. Maybe it’s not marinated well. The skin was burnt and not crispy (makunat) unlike the one I was used to. The meat is directly placed in styro without underlying paper, tissue or banana leaf.

Lesson learned?
Not all liempo is delicious. Learn to find the right store.
