“Carinderia” or “Turo-turo” is comparable to the hawking centres in Singapore. In a “carinderia”, one can get a taste of authentic, home-cooked Filipino delicacies at a very low price.
I took these photos in Baler. I was running out of cash and could no longer afford to eat at the restaurants close to the beach. My cousin, who has been to Baler several times, suggested that we eat at the yummiest “Carinderia” in downtown Baler most famously known as the Rolling Stones. I ordered my favorite Filipino dish - dinuguan! I was not disappointed! The food was super yummy. I find myself rubbing my tummy ( a gesture of satisfaction after a meal in the Philippines, which, according to my mom, is very unladylike ) all the way back to the hotel.
