Super Tuyo by Tongo's Foods- A Classic Filipino Favorite

"An average Filipino loves tuyo." That's what's in the mind of Mr. Gilberto Tongo when he came up with the idea of creating Super Tuyo. 

Super Tuyo is basically the Filipino-favorite salted dried herring mixed with a signature chili garlic sauce in oil. 

It comes in 3 exciting variants: Original, Famous Spicy, and Sweet & Spicy, all of which are made with a special secret sauce. 

When I received some jars of Super Tuyo last month, the first thing that came into my mind was to make a Tuyo Pasta just like what we had in Pino and Gayuma ni Maria

I love pasta with tuyo and so I decided to cook a simple dish using Super Tuyo Sweet and Spicy and some ingredients I could find in the kitchen.

Procedure is pretty simple: Just scoop out some tuyo flakes from the jar, place it in a heated pan, mix in the cooked pasta, add some pesto sauce and basil flakes, then serve. Quick and easy right? I love that garlic and seasonings were already mixed in every bottle, making it easier and faster to cook this dish.  

I love the salty-sweet taste of the pasta with just a hint of spiciness to it. The tuyo flakes really stood out on this dish, making every forkful a taste to remember. I couldn't believe that I managed to cook this dish in just a matter of minutes. It's so simple, even those who don't know how to cook could easily pull this dish off. 

Aside from pasta, you could simply top it on crackers or pizza for a light and tasty snack. Easy on the tuyo flakes though as a little amount goes a long way. It was very salty when I tried to eat it with plain crackers.

Or simply top Super Tuyo on garlic rice for breakfast. Simple but totally classic!
