Torta De Argao

After our Dumaguete trip, we were supposed to go straight to Cebu City but since Tita N and Tita M joined our trip, they convinced me that a short stop to Argao to visit the church and museum won't change our schedule drastically. O-kay.



Argao town proper has a very nice centuries old church that is rich in history and artifacts. Yes, one must find time to visit Argao Museum and the church. I'm glad that I got bullied into going to Argao.


And because I did my research and I've been to Cebu a few years back, I was told that Argao is known for its torta just like Carcar is known for its lechon. Luckily, I espied this big banner (who can't miss this, right?) along our way to the church. I insisted on stopping to buy some goodies.

Torta. This is different from the torta that we know here in Manila because when we say torta, an egg and eggplant dish comes to mind.



I've read somewhere that tortas are made from eggs yolks and lard so it is laden with cholesterol. Good cholesterol that is. Tastes good!

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.
