Hobert the cook holding the fresh catch of the day.He cooked the sting ray for lunch..
I was at a Filipino restaurant here in New York and I told the owner that on my last trip to the Philippines I had string ray adobo. She though I was trying to fool her. She did not believe me. She said that Filipinos don't eat String Ray period. Then I was thinking if that's the case then why was it served to me? I was on an uninhabited Island living in a nippa hut for a few days and what ever came in to the fisherman's net ended up on the menu. The place was the most beautiful I ever seen a true paradise so an exotic fish seemed to fit in to that experience.
However now I wander if they can catch string rays why not catch a regular fish?
That is Hobert our cook on Cadlao island holding the fresh catch of the day in the morning and yes he cooked the sting ray for lunch. How it tasted? Like shark meat not bad at all.
