First time to join La.Pi.S! I am excited to join this meme because it's Philippine based. I was supposed to join in last week, but then we were having electricity problem because of the typhoon, so I decided to join this week instead. I am more excited to join because this week's topic is all about grilling.

Barbecue is one of my favorite foods. My sister often applauds me for my efforts because she said she cannot really go through the process of grilling -- from marinating to preparing the grill to the actual grilling itself. I love eating barbecues because the drippings that goes to the coal and the smoke coming from the coal gives the barbecued meat that distinct delicious flavor. My favorite is the chicken inasal.

This picture was shot yesterday when I went to the Salcedo Village weekend market in Jaime Velasquez Park, Makati City. I am so tempted to buy even just one stick, but I already ate some food so I passed this one up already. But, I already tasted the barbecue here and even if it's 35 pesos per stick, I still consider it a great buy because the stick is long and the meat is lean. Next week, I will be there again to attend the event sponsored by the South African embassy. Maybe next weekend I will be able to grab a stick...or two! =)

OMG, I can smell it! No matter how I try, I just can't duplicate Philippine barbeque off the street. I think it has to do with the location :)

Great photo!

WOW! I miss eating prok bbq... naku, sorry, i like my bbq with a little fat (yum!) not too lean. The sauce looks so good I want to get the drippings. Thanks for sharing this... made me really hungry.

Oh my, P35 na ba ang bbq ngayon?

@Ces -- thanks for hosting La.Pi.S!

@jmom -- i agree! i guess location has something to do with it!

@leapsphotoalbum -- sa streets, 6 to 15 pesos per stick, pero sa mga grill restaurants, usually 35 or 40 per stick. sa salcedo village weekend market kasi, most of the customers are mayayaman (excluding me) and foreigners, kaya medyo mahal.
