After going to our backyard, my tatay (father) would always return with a lot of banana heart (blossom), our family business is selling banana fruits that’s why we have a lot of banana plants in our backyard. He would give it to nanay (mother) for her to cook it. Sometimes we get sick of eating the same recipe of banana blossom that my nanay would always prepare.
So we were surprised when nanay made a tortang (omelet) puso ng saging. Sounds new right? We are used of eating tortang talong for our breakfast,actually that’s my favorite, but that morning was different. Nanay prepared tortang puso ng saging instead, then she shared the secret of eating tortang talong-eating it with coffee. Hmmmmm…indeed, it really tastes good with coffee. I’m really happy that she made a twist with my favorite tortang talong.
