You might be wondering how I ate the Tokwa’t Baboy I made the other day — inulam ko ba o pinulutan? Well, syempre I partnered it with Arroz Caldo! There’s nothing like a steaming hot bowl of flavorful chicken rice porridge and fatty pork ears + crispy tofu on sweet, salty vinegar … eaten on a cold rainy day!
Story time tayo… to tell you honestly, my nanay didn’t cook Arroz Caldo when I was younger. Kasi nga meat vendor kami, syempre most of the time our ulam is what we’re selling — so our Lugaw is either made from pork or beef. Of course it’s always so flavorful but I was curious kung anong lasa pag chicken. So when I got in charge of the cooking, I made Arroz Caldo. It turned out flavorful as well, easier to cook too!
