“What the hell is that?” my sister and I asked when our mother plunked down the tray on our table in the food court.
“It’s a tail section of tuna,” Mom declared. “Deep-fried till crisp! Just P 150.00!”
Yes, indeedy, it’s a fried tuna tail from the Davao Tuna Grill stall. Not a bad deal at its price, seeing how it comes with a cup of rice and a small bowl of pinakbet.
It went down a treat with the small dish of soy sauce, siling labuyo, and kalamansi – at least, the bits my sister and I got to taste. Dad managed to finish the whole monstrous thing solo! 😛
