Filipino Breakfast



A familiar dish at a Filipino breakfast table---tocino and slices of fresh tomatoes! It is a traditional Filipino delicacy that got its name from the Spanish word, tocino, which is used to describe cured meat. Tocino is sweetened cured pork, fried in oil and best eaten with fried rice.

just had tocino the other day for breakfast. the fried rice looks delish.

you asked about the dried fish - it's dried biya. i think binitad is a process to dry the fish.
