I have lived in Gensan for five years now. I have not eaten a single morsel of sashimi nor kinilaw nor fresh durian. It’s a shame, isn’t it?
I have to admit I am not happy that I do not eat those because I consult for restaurants here. I have to freakin’ learn to eat those! Why? Because I do recipe testing all the time. I always do not get to eat sashimi and kinilaw. Why again? I don’t think I will like the taste. Meaning I’m not a General yet.
But believe me, there are real true-blue Generals who don’t. I know many. LOL. It’s like I’m justifying my dislike for those food items.
As for durian, so many people have encouraged me. I eat marang though. I think the right time will come when I will finally be able to eat it. By the way, Kring Macion of Marasa Grill on Kadulasan has the most wonderful tasting durian and mango float. Check it out.
