Snack of the Week: Manggang Hilaw with Bagoong

One of the best thing about being a Filipino is the abundance of this irresistible duo treat in the Philippines - Manggang hilaw and Bagoong (green/unripe mangoes with shrimp paste). Philippines has also been known to have the sweetest mangoes around - Guimaras mango, which is a variety of the popular Carabao Mango (Manginera indica). In 1995, the Guinness Book of World records listed the Carabao Mango as the sweetest fruit in the world. But we also love it's sour-y version which is the popular street food, the manggang hilaw.

We may not have been doing those African mango diet but hey, it's mango season once again. We personally don't own a mango tree at home but luckily our house sits near a lot of mango trees that we have no problem getting bags of mangoes for our afternoon treat. And with bagoong around...heaven!

I like it when it already has a slight yellow color so its sweeter. Dig in everyone!
