Chicharong Bulaklak (Fried Ruffle Fat)

Chicharong Bulaklak

Sometimes, food becomes more delicious when it’s forbidden. Masarap talaga kapag bawal, no? Just like this Chicharong Bulaklak (Fried Ruffle Fat) — crispy, fatty goodness that is five notches above all crispy pork dishes!ย  It’s actually one of my favorites but I seldom eat it because even though it tastes so good, it’s very unhealthy because of its high fat content.

This ECQ though, and stress eating, and a neighbor that sells frozen ruffle fat. Well, it just makes me want to indulge my tastebuds a little. And so malutong na Chicharong Bulaklak happened…


Ruffle Fat Boiling in Salted Water

What is Ruffle Fat?

Ruffle Fat is not actually FAT. It is that thing that holds the coil of the pigโ€™s intestines together. When that coil is taken away, it yields this flowery thing that is the ruffle fat.

How Do You Cook It?

You wash it until very clean and boil it in salted water until tender. Then you cut it into smaller pieces and season it with salt. It is then frozen and fried to a crisp the next day.


This is best eaten dipped in spicy vinegar and paired with steamed rice OR it can also be beer chow.

If you’re on Keto or LCIF or on a low carb diet, I bet this is gonna be one of your favorite snacks. Don’t overindulge, though.
