Dumaguete Public Market: Buying For a Meal Worth 200 Pesos

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Probably for some fun and thrilling escapade, our hosts decided to give each one of us Php 200.00 to use in buying for our own choice of fresh food at the Dumaguete Public Market. They  said cooking will be done by the resort's resident Chef.

There were eight of us in the group so instead of buying individually, we decided to combine our money and buy for all of us. It was actually exciting to make "tawad" with the public market vendors when we tried buying some seafood like a few kilos of squid, a couple of milkfish, some huge shrimps or "sugpo", a few kilos of tuna, and some mangoes to go with "bagoong".

I have to admit that it was a splendid idea adding some spice to our Dumaguete adventure.

The streets along the market area was not that crowded compared to the ones here in Metro Manila. ..You don't see jeepneys but a lot of those huge tricycles .....and I noticed that the market stall were a lot cleaner than those that can be found here in Manila.

We also thought of buying vegetables for our "sinigang" it was "talbos ng kamote" (Camote tops), some "sitaw" and a couple of "labanos", then  the "asim" mixture of instant "sampalok" straight from a pouch (everything is instant nowadays though I still prefer the fresh squeeze from "sampalok".

To complete the meal, we must have some fruits. So the choice was green mango, and then some bananas.

I should also mention that even before we started buying the seafood, vegetables and fruit, we chanced upon these delicacies being sold somewhere at the entrance to the market. They are called bodbod from Tanjay and were of two variations: Kabog and Chocolate. They resemble the "suman" of Metro Manila but a bit thinner and tastier.

It was being sold for Php 50.00 a pair.

After buying the fresh food, vegetables and fruits, we then went back to the Sta. Monica Beach Club resort to surrender the food to the kitchen where the food will be later cooked by the Chef based upon our choice of manner of cooking whether grilled, fried, steamed, boiled or whatever.
