my take on #pinakbet ...though it lacks one of the key ingredients, #bagoong (sautéed shrimp paste). the best version of pinakbet is still auntie belle’s. i could eat it everyday till the very last drop 🤤 i still get shell-shocked every time i take a first bite... it’s that good.
anyhoo, this contains bittergourd, thai eggplant, tomatoes and ladyfingers. to make it more flavourful, add prawns, pork belly, pumpkin and long beans :) #filipinofood
