Haven’t I mentioned enough of this for you to know how I am seeking the perfect recipe? Balamban Liempo has been in my dreams, post with attempt here after I have read it in MarketManila. And suddenly finding one along the streets of Bohol was amazing. I literally instructed the driver to turn around since I wanted to see and buy some. I mean, how real can you get than buying from a Balamban Liempo stall? (Perhaps going to Balamban and buying there)
Of course, this style of cooking/marinating is already being done by Chicboy, hence why this has become one of my favorite food sources for liempo. But it was so cool to find this random stall which just newly opened too!
The 600g piece of meat is filled with green filling of spring onion and lemongrass. At P180 pesos, it seemed good enough. Considering that roasted chicken, which is around P200 to P250, still has bones, and the balamban liempo is all meat, it seemed worth it
We had dinner plans with friends that night but it seemed we couldn’t control ourselves. We ended up snacking on it before we went out. We only ate a couple of pieces, but it was soooo good! The rest became part of our breakfast the next day If only one opens up here in Manila.
As of today, May 30, 2011, Balamban Liempo has tons of branches (please see comment below) and tons of them in Manila, yay! As of posting date of the blog, I thought they only had branches in VisMin
