Pangasinan Road Trip 9: Two Thumbs Up For This Province Messy Business!!!

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

Since December 2010, I had been in and around Pangasinan almost weekly. With these frequent visits, I am always treated to Pangasinan's "messy business".

Oops,before you conclude otherwise, when I say "messy business" I simply mean prawns and crabs. I love prawns and crabs although eating them look messy!

With my frequent road trips in and around Pangasinan, I didn't fail to notice that I can always find dishes of crabs or prawns in any homes or restaurants I have visited so far. I later learned that Pangasinan has a growing aquaculture farms focused on the production of mud crabs locally known as "alimango" and tiger prawns ("sugpo")in addition to its more famous seafood produce - bangus (milkfish) of Dagupan City.

Last March 8, 2011,my gastronomic pleasure was again treated to a higher level. My host's long dining table was very enticing, with the biggest prawns and the biggest crabs I have ever seen to date. I wasn't able to take close - up photos of the crabs as I was too shy to do that. But I had this picture taken of the first tiger prawn I devoured haha! (see how big it is?)

The tiger prawn was really good and the crab was tasty. This is a great way to welcome the week with an excellent foodie experience. Pangasinan to me means "simply delicious"!!
