Filipino blood soup

Dinuguan (in the cup)

Another interesting food I happened to have in Hong Kong. Not Chinese at all, but due to the large number of Filipino workers their cuisine is quite common there. This item is dinuguan, which is essentially a stew of pork meat and pork blood. It’s the item in the cup there. The mess around it is our leftover balut shells and I can’t remember what the other item is. You can read a lot more about dinuguan over at wikipedia. It was really enjoyable. I’m not a big fan of the coagulated blood commonly found in Thai cuisine, but when liquid blood is used to flavor broths I usually find it nice and tasty. Someday I’ll have to visit the Philippines and try a bunch more of their delicious food.
