my wife cooked bakalaw for she said that is what they eat during holy week. when iwas younger we eat fish but no specific recipe to cook or something. i was born and raised in marikina and i can not remember if we cook or eat certain food every holy week. my wife has different up bringing and she said that they cook bakalaw. though i love to eat delicacies from the provinces like sapin sapin yum.

I remember when I was small, during Good Friday, a neighbor will cook guinatang munggo in a big pot and give it to her neighbors, some sort of "pa-caridad". Caridad means charity, so she's giving away that merienda treat, it has been their family pledge or promise that every Good Friday they will cook something to be given away to neighbors as treat. While my mother will cook sinukmani or biko for the season.

hi bart78 can a yank from the US also respond? I do have a filipina table mate here at Gold Crest whom I am good friends with if that helps. I am in my room here mylotting away and remembering how we used to go to Church services on Good fridays and how we always had what we called hot Cross buns, they are huge and filled with candied fruit and coated with white frosting that is d rizzled down into the cross cut on the top of the bun. served steaming hot they are so good, have not had one in awhile but they were always served on Easter. I live in California by the way. 'also we will be served fish today in honor of all the Catholics here on Good Friday. greetings from the US and me.
