Paho (Pajo), Mangga and Bagoong Balayan
Whenever I go for vacation during summer season, I make sure that my parents will buy me a Pajo (Paho), It looks like a small mango but it is not a mango. It is something I love to eat as a side dish for Tapa and Longanisa. I normally put a “fish sauce (patis)” made from sinaing na tulingan or “Bagoong Balayan” as shown below.
I can’t explain the taste, it is something that will make you crave for more rice and tapa.
This is only available during summer season. So next time you visit taal during summer season ask my parents ( Gerry and Lheen ) on where to buy pajo and “Bagoong Balayan” ~ anchovies from Balayan Batangas.
Bagoong Balayan is available all year round. and could be ought at store in Taal Public Market.
