I forgot what they called this, but I was intrigued so I decided to buy one... :P
Honestly, I was happy that the egg was well I couldn't figure out what they placed inside (aside from the egg), but it went well with the vinegar that came with it.
Would I buy this again? I might. Not overly crazy about it, though. :D

My partner also prefers her eggs well done / completely cooked.

Where did you buy this, sis?

thanks! bought this at Lung Center's Weekend Market. :)

It's shredded young papaya. :) It's the Batac Empanada - very similar to the Vigan Empanada, but Vigan's version is quite yellowish. They say the Batac Empanada is much more delicious than Vigan's, but this one I tasted from Lung Center weekend market wasn't as delicious as the one I tasted from Vigan (specifically from Irene's). My sister said that the authentic one from Batac was way much better, but this one was actually okay. It also had Vigan longganisa.

My Food Friday post is up HERE.

ps - I, too, prefer my eggs well done. I don't like runny yolks.

It looks like an Ilocos style empanada. I've never had them but seen on YouTube how it's prepared. The crust is made with annatto-colored rice flour and filled with shredded green papaya, mungbean sprouts, crumbled longaniza, and an egg. I'd like to make it at least once.:)

Happy weekend!

OI!!!! special ilocos empanada

yung shell is made of corn meal,egg whites and water. a little food color.golden yellow is from vigan(ilocos sur) and orange is from batac(ilocos norte).then rolled as thin as paper.

1st step: put shredded young(unripe) papaya, yes! yung pang atchara. place the egg yolk& ilocos longanisa in the middle. other cooks or vendors use the whole egg. in vigan its yolk only, the whites will go to the shell.

2nd step: fold cover to make a shell. seal and trim edges.

3rd step : frying. yes!!! i agree!!!! better not look at it. =))

4th step : in ilocos, they serve it on a plate if dine in, brown paper bag if take out.

dip = cane vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, chili and sliced onion.

as for my entry, it is HERE
