Food Finds: Mama Sita’s Tocino Mix

November 9th, 2010

While hunting through the markets of Chapel Hill for Chinese rice wine, my aunt took me to an Asian market that had moved into a room in a local Chinese restaurant after being kicked out of its old location by the landlord in another familiar real estate situation.
The friendly owner must have offered me half the items in the store after finding the shaoxing wine for me, but it was my aunt who showed me this packet of Mama Sita’s tocino marinade.
My knowledge of Filipino foods are limited to an adobo recipe I’ve been cooking for years and a breakfast I had at a hole in the wall this summer in San Francisco.
With the Asia trip coming up, I’m pretty curious to try out some semblance of Filipino food ahead of time, so I hope to try this out sooner rather than later.
