    (Nameless) Stopover Stall: Nueva Ecija's "Tupig"

    by cyndymc Written Dec 3, 2009

    The familiar smell of "tupig" being grilled led me to this stall at our bus pitstop in NE. I didn't know NE also had "tupig", as I usually smell/see/eat them only in Pangasinan. It was a rare chance to try NE's version of "tupig".

    What to buy: "Tupig": it is a concoction of grated young coconut, rice, coconut milk and sweetener (usually "panucha") carefully wrapped in young banana leaves, then grilled over live coal.

    "Katuray" flowers: these flowers of a medicinal tree are mixed with soup dishes or prepared into a decoction (as anti-hypertension herbal tea)

    "Suha": native pomelo, known for it unique tartness with sweet aftertaste

    What to pay: P10 for 3 pcs of "tupig"

    by cyndymc Written Dec 3, 2009

    When your bus makes a stopover at Cabanatuan City, snack vendors will immediately go on board and sell you different stuff. You don't have to go down to buy your snacks from the stores.

    What to buy: "Chicharon Bulacan" (pork crackling), boiled quail eggs, boiled corn on cob, Nueva Ecija "pinipig" (sweetened glutinous rice puff), candies, fried peanuts, banana chips, purified water, etc

    What to pay: Very cheap! (Example:P10 for 6 pcs. quail eggs; P10 for a bottle of purified water)
