What I found in the grocery this week just made my husband love me more. His favorite “pulutan” is tofu or tokwa (not necessarily actually that he drinks alcohol, he just likes something to munch as he work on his computer) and my latest find made it easier for me to prepare what he likes.
Datu Puti ToyoMagic is your perfect companion for “tokwang baboy” and it costs only P25 per bottle as I bought one from Puregold this week. It’s soy sauce combined with vinegar and onion (without the bits and pieces) and ideal for dipping, marinade and cooking. It tastes a little bit sweet and just enough to complement the acidity of the vinegar. I wished the onion flavor will be a little bit more intense but I thought this is just perfect so I can also serve this sauce when we have kids on the table.
First time I bought a bottle, I also bought some soft tofu, sliced them into cubes, and friend. I then sliced a couple of liempo pieces and fried them. I served the crispy hot tokwang baboy with Datu Puti Toyo Magic and voila, ubos!
There are also other variants of Datu Puti that I plan to keep in the pantry, Datu Puti Toyomansi and Datu Puti ToyoChili. Mapaparami na naman ang kanin namin nito!
