  1. yes, almost all carinderias serve munggo every Friday. love the food review. will definitely visit this resto :)

  2. In our household, munggo was served every Friday especially during the Lenten season. Munggo can be a source of protein to replace the meat that is omitted during the Lenten season. That is the only reason I can think of why they usually cook munggo on Fridays.

  3. I am a munggo fan!

    I can eat munggo everyday. It got me into trouble though since my euric acid now is up the charts. So I am slowing down on munggo.

    Long live munggo! Long live chico!

  4. Kainis ka talaga Chico!!! Hahaha! Now I’m craving for pinoy food at 9am! Have to find some in the DC area :)

  6. they say that they serve munggo on fridays as a form of “penitensya” or sakripisyo because it is a friday and you are paying respect to Jesus’ death… parang sabi nga ni reincarnated princess… sa lugar namin kahit di nga lenten season gusto nila gulay pa rin… maybe munggo is accessible to everyone dati… tsaka siguro kung di ka naman may kaya e mahirap magluto ng maraming rekados tulad ng chop suey… hehe… ;)

  7. Hi Chico,
    I actually ask my mother this same question before. Her explanation is an echo of reincarnated princess’ and pink shrink’s comments. Nanay said that this is probably an offshoot of the Lenten practice of avoiding meat on Fridays. Folks substituted animal meat with poor man’s meat, munggo, which is as good a source of protein as the former. She’s an educated provincial lass who knows her soil and traditions, and this does makes a lot of sense, so I believe her. Plus, she’s my mother. :D

    Anyway, this entry made me hungry, so I’m off to scavenge. As always, thanks for an entertaining read! God bless!

  8. the desserts at C2 are really a must-try for anyone who’s in for an adventure. they used to serve champorado mousse which is a fusion of the local champorado and looks like a parfait served with otap.

  9. Maybe going around restos and having a review abt it could be a thing with the Chi-chi and Gigi show… i mean what could be a better way to a manly man’s heart but by his manly tummy, right? you can even invite some of your listener’s to join you… *wink wink*
