I bet fellow Ilocano would love this food; slightly ripe tomato sliced with the sparkling of seaweed we call 'pukpuklo'. Lunch or dinner, this food can fulfill its duty-- to make the eater feel full in their stomach. The seaweed is abundance right now which you can buy at P20 to P40 or less than $1. The tomato now is even cheaper that at P10 or $.25 you can choose the juicier and tastier tomato. Together, this is one of the best food of common Ilocano.

Once I like tomato, but now I don't 'Did you know eating lot of tomatoes can kill you?' I have Heartburn lo Tomatoes are high in acidity. If you suffer from heartburn, it’s probably best that you stay away from tomatoes as eating them will encourage the production of acid in your stomach.

Ilocano because pokpoklo is so common in Ilocos, he he, I guess you love more the ar-aritos or corales

My grandfather is from Ilocos and I remember eating something like this when I was younger. I thought the seaweed is an octopus tentacle. My mom tried to recreate it minus the seaweed. Basically she will chop green mangoes, and tossed it with chopped tomatoes and onions, and mix it with sautéed bagoong. We love eating it with steamed rice and fried galunggong. Man, now I feel hungry for Filipino foods.

seaweed with mangoes is good and the onions. I have not yet taste with bagguong. The seaweed is already salty and adding it with bagguong make it saltier and also easy to shrivel

I've had both those things, just not together. I might like them, but my kids would not be a fan.
