Do you know these mussels? Here in the Philippines, we call it "Tahong". This is sold here by kilograms and is somewhat cheap compared to other kinds of mussels. We cook these mussels in different ways. I usually saute these mussels in butter, onions, garlic and ginger and add white softdrinks to have a wonderful taste. Some just broil or steam it. There are others who boil it , then removed it from shells and mix to other dishes. I love to eat mussels sometimes. Do you eat mussels too?

I am okay with mussels.. not too much of a fan. I love prawns and crabs more.

Yeah, prawns and crabs are better than mussels. But they are more expensive than mussels.

Father and my Brothers loves to eat that. They always have lots of ways how to cook that. It can be fried or with lots of butter in it.

I like mussels but I don't often eat them. Since there are not very common in the market. And we don't often buy them since it is a little trouble to cook them as we need to wash them at first. And you know actually there are nothing left to eat after removng the mussel shells

That's true. Mussels should be washed properly before cooking it.

I love it too, even simply by steaming it, or dipping it in egg and flour then fry it crispy.

I eat them when a friend serves them but I prefer clams over them.
