Sinaing na Tulingan is a Filipino Fish Recipe that translates to braised fish. The dish makes use of bullet tuna, a type of saltwater fish also known as Tulingan. The dish is famous in the coastal towns of Batangas. Nestor Velasquez of Mataas na Kahoy in Batangas is a food entrepreneur who has reinvented the production and packaging of this favourite Batangueño delicacy through Pamana.
Traditionally, commercial sinaing na tulingan is simmered for hours on end in large earthenware pots with bilimbi (kamias), salt, and water, and sold in the markets. It usually has to be consumed within the day or, if any is left over, fried the next day. But Nestor made use of the “canning” process to make Artisanal Sinaing na tulingan, with each bottle prepared individually, steeped in brine, bottled and cooked in a pressurized cannery. The entire process is stringent to safeguard against botulism and designed to meet even American food production standards.
The result is the perfect pasalubong or souvenir for tourists and OFWs alike. The Batangas delicacy Sinaing na Tulingan, but with a longer shelf life.
One of the best places to try out the famed Kapeng Barako is in Cafe De Lipa. Their main product is the Barako Joe, which is their Classic Brew. Barako is generally used to describe Batangas men, and this mean coffee is no exception. Barako Joe is true to its definition, strong in taste, aroma, and in that caffeine “kick.” They also offer other hot and iced coffees, the best of which are the Caffe Macchiato and the Caffe Mocha. Pastries, such as cheese rolls, Tableya Revel bar, and Dulce De Leche are also available. If you wish to learn more about coffee and make your own signature blend, you can sign up for their Coffee Cupping classes. Or you can take home coffee goodness, by grabbing some of their coffee packs and share these beans with your family and friends. Cafe de Lipa also tries to help the coffee farmers in the Philippines by getting their beans locally.
Tanauan’s Ice Cream makers go above and beyond by getting creative with local flavors and ingredients— specifically Bulalo. Think of the flavoursome beef shank and the equally tasty soup served cold. Once your senses have gotten over the shock of wether you are eating dinner or dessert, you’re sure to get hooked with this unusual way of serving Bulalo.
