The excitement probably could be seen on my face when my Bangus arrived because the people at the next table smiled at me. hahaha That was a bit embarrassing ... I was not embarrassed by the fact that I was eating by myself... the embarrasing part was that people might think I will be able to finish the whole fish all by myself!!! It was really huge! Then they gave me calamansi and sili... which I added to the soy sauce. Even the size of their calamansi was HUGE!!!
I don't know how they fry the fish but it was moist inside and crunchy outside! Usually... when I fry, it turns out so dry and card board like. I don't know how to fry real well ... maybe because I rarely eat fried food at home. I brought home the rest of the fish... I did NOT finish the Jumbo Bangus. I had it again for dinner ... that was when I noticed the fish was marinated in salt, pepper and calamansi.... then dredged with flour before frying.... then topped with browned garlic.
Finally.... I was able to try the famous bangus! My Tagaytay journey was so quick... 2 hours to get there ... 1 hour for lunch and 2 hours to get back to Manila. Not bad for my last summer hurrah before I start working again on Monday when my shop opens for school year 2010 - 2011.
