How to recreate Manong"s Famous Fishball Sauce to your Mekeni's Squid Balls




“Swab Taste Fishbulan” Positive sa sarap, Negative sa Dumi”


 

This photo has been making the rounds on Facebook for the past few weeks  and I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this on one of your friend’s wall, and while I do think its quite witty, I’m quite certain it could not live up to its promise of being truly “clean.”

 

Still it made me rush to the supermarket to grab some of my favorite tusok-tusok.

 

Just like the adidas, Betamax, Walkman, kwek kwek, Pinoy street food will never be complete without fishballs, squidballs, and kikiam and because of the global pandemic and the lockdown gone are the days when you could just go to the street corner and buy your favorite snacks on a stick. 

 

No thanks to the global pandemic and the lockdown, even our suking manong has been practicing social distancing and we rarely see him in his usual spot. 

 


I know, you can simply go to the supermarket to buy frozen packs of all sorts of “balls,” but you have to admit, it’s the sauce that makes you keep going back to the fishball stand. There’s just something about the multiple dips that you share with the rest of the people that make that sweet spicy sauce taste different—although just thinking about it now with COVID19—gives me anxiety attacks. 

 

So in my quest to find the best-tasting street food I can cook at home, I found this BAYANI brand from Mekeni Food Corporation. It’s a new a product line that offers squid balls, chicken balls, kikiam, siomai, siopao, and even the party favorite, lumpiang shanghai. Now you can enjoy a #BayaniStreetfood feast with your family at the comfort of your home. 

 

But wait there’s more! As I promised I also discovered a recipe to recreate that special dipping sauce, I thought only manong fishball can make!

 

Here’s the recipe:

 

Ingredients:

2 cups of water

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp cassava flour or cornstarch

½ cup brown sugar

3 gloves garlic

1 small onion 

1 siling labuyo (optional)

 

Procedure:

Just combine everything in a pot

Stir to dissolve the brown sugar and flour/cornstarch

Turn the stove on and let it boil in low heat.

 

And voila! Its so easy right?

 

Now that you know how to make the sauce check out these other products of Mekeni!
