Here's a childhood favorite of my mine. This is okoy or shrimp fritters. The base is shredded green papaya mixed in batter, then topped with several pieces of shrimps and deep fried. Other households also use potatoes, fresh banana blossoms, or bean sprouts but in Pampanga, green papaya is normally used.

Dipping sauce would be vinegar with crushed garlic and black peppercorns. Yum! Yum! Yum!

What's your favorite Pinoy merienda?

Nice try, growin' crazy.

No one in his / her right mind would use BUTTER on okoy. BATTER is more like it.

Thanks for dropping by!
