Lumpia wrappers are made from a sticky blob of flour, salt, and water and are shaped by doing a sick motion like this, wtf:
Balut is made by taking duck eggs and incubating them for, like, 18 days. Then white people can buy some to make viral taste testing videos!
Chicharon is basically pork skin that's been flavored, dried under the sun, deep fried, and made its way to the walls of our arteries!
Betamax are pork/chicken blood on sticks. They're made by pouring the blood in a large, open container and letting it sit there for a few hours before cutting into rectangular pieces and skewering!
And whoah, why is iskramble colored pink, right?
Here's the answer: RED FOOD COLORING!
The "skin" that's been holding longganisa together? Yeahhhh that's actually dried pig intestines LOL.
Bagoong is made from dilis, water, and lots and lots of salt, and is fermented (ideally) in clay jars for months.
Why is it color brown, you ask? Well, here's your answer:
Bagoong without the food coloring should also look brown-ish, but a bit muted. Sadly, its natural color doesn't fall under society's standards of how bagoong "should look like." UGH.
Salted eggs or itlog na pula are also duck eggs that have been coated in salt and mud. Yes, MUD as in putik, bro.
And why is it red, you ask? Well:
The ube jam that the rest of the world is enjoying right now comes from a root crop called purple yam.
It's made by putting coconut milk, sugar, and the grated boiled yam over low heat and by continuously mixing it until your arms fall off its socket.
Sundot kulangot isn't actually made from boogers, silly. We all know what booger tastes like (don't lie), and this Baguio delicacy doens't taste like that at all. It's actually made from rice flour, molasses, unicorn tears, and everything nice and sweet.
Tokneneng (or kwek kwek, whatever you want to believe in) are basically just dredged quail eggs dipped in orange batter and deep fried.
Why is it orange, you ask? Well...
JUST KIDDING!!! It's actually annatto powder, or atsuete.
And finally, the layers of sapin-sapin are made by steaming each layer ONE👏BY👏ONE👏 because we are Filipinos and we like laborious stuff!
