Ecological Eating--Isaw


"I've long believed that good food, good eating, is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure"
— Anthony Bourdain
(I, Lyra, love anthony bourdain)

This is isaw, a skewered chicken intestine. Here in Butuan you can find this delicacy along AD Curato (across Butuan Central Elementary school). As I said Isaw is chicken intestines cleaned inside out, sometimes boiled (adobo), and then barbecued.

It took me ages to muster the courage to try these kind of foods. I've tried this and one other that looks even weirder than this. I keep asking which part of the chicken it was and I still can't picture it out. Anyway, isaw tastes good. Its pretty cheap at 1 peso (or 2) only. So far I haven't been sick eating street foods yet *knock on wood 3 times.* So come on and try it. It's nearly Halloween anyway =)

we call it "usus ayam" (chicken intestine) and sate usus ayam (skewered chicken intestine). fried of barbecued, it's delicious!

I love isaw! But only from someone I trust. That thing can be dangerous if not cleaned properly.
