Starting the day with a good breakfast is the dictum that has always been pounded into our heads since we were kids. But Filipinos traditionally start the day with a good breakfast - making sure that it is enough to give the energy necessary for the day’s work. There are various kinds of tuyo. But it is the tonsoy that is more famous.
Tuyo is not usually eaten alone. The salty taste of tuyo is complemented by fresh, sliced tomatoes. Others pair tuyo with spicy vinegar. Both of these break down the salty taste of tuyo and make it tastier at the same time. Whichever is chosen, tuyo can’t be enjoyed without warm, hot rice. Down all that taste with brewed coffee and you are ready to face the day.
