Review: The Pantry Project Manila's Badass Bopis
During the quarantine period, several businesses have emerged with home cooks finally sharing their best-kept specialty dishes to the public.
The Pantry Project Manila, an "online pantry," recently opened its doors to local culinary trailblazers and provided them with an online platform where they can share and sell their select and promising dishes.
Among these select dishes is what they call “badass bopis” carefully crafted by Tita Belen who is also the owner of Marta’s.
Tita Belen’s bopis dish recipe was handed to her for years and she is finally sharing it the local online community.
“I am sharing this because I love the advocacy that The Pantry Project Manila has. I hope they can help more of our people. It is important during these times, we help and reach out. And what better way to do that, than thru food!” she said.
Badass bopis is not your basic bopis because aside from being an heirloom recipe, it is meticulously prepared and is 100% clean and safe.
It is cleaned and washed thrice, with its ingredients pork lungs and heart finely chopped and not grounded. And then it undergoes stove top boiling for a couple of times and then washed again before it gets cooked twice on the first day and then once more on the next day.
Truly this traditional dish enjoyed as either appetizer or main entrée, brings out a distinct flavor with a citrus finish. It’s generous with meat serving.
Badass bopis is also available in spicy although TheEatventurers tried out the original non-spicy one that still makes you yearn for a cup of rice that it’s best partnered with.
Aside from badass bopis, the pantry also invited other established online sellers as their concessionaires which include Aling Lucing Sisig, Munting Tinapay ni Izka, The Kitchen Theory, among others.
