Pinakbet (Ilocano song)

Here's another interesting video.  An Ilocano folk song about the Pinakbet, which is a vegetable dish with fish sauce and some pork bits mixed in.  It's really good, and is one of my favourite dishes.




I am not a fluent Ilocano speaker, incidentally, so this song tested my knowledge of the dialect.  I am able to understand the parts that describe Pinakbet as a mixture of vegetables and that you cannot get tired of this dish.  So true!  I acquired a taste for bittermelon (ampalaya) though pinakbet, and this dish will not be complete without it.

Want to cook up some pinakbet?  I have a recipe here for you!
