My Filipina colleague brought me some more packaged food from the Philippines, this time being something called tuyo . The way she explained it to me was that it was some kind of stinky fish that traditionally is eaten by peasants but is now common among the masses. Based on that description as well as some stuff that I read online, I was expecting it to be so offensively strong that it would just stink up the entire place when I opened it. It turned out to be much tamer than I had thought, with those thin and salty strips of herring going great with a bowl of rice. Yes, it had some stank to it, but in a good way. Perhaps the stronger smelling things were those cloves of garlic sitting inside, but of course that made it all the more tasty too. Anyway, I liked it. If this was the "mild" version, then I'm curious to know what the stronger ones taste like.
