Cavite City : Cumida Ternos

In Cavite City, there is such thing as “cumida ternos” or viand food pairings. Caviteños makes it a point of serving native dishes in proper combination. A salty dish is paired with a sweet one, a spicy with a bland, and the most common a wet with dry one. One of the most popular or so called trifecta of food pairing is Kare-Kare-Adobo-Kilawin traditionally served on Sundays. It is still being cooked and can be bought in nearby carinderias around the city. Two of the most popular lutong bahay food shops selling this Caviteñean trifecta are Violy’s and Casa Vieja. 

This cumida ternos section what makes this blog DISTINCT from all the other Philippine recipe blogs.
