Mangoes are Here!

08 May 2008 8 comments

Mangoes! This is what I've been having for breakfast. You should have seen my eyes light up when I walked in at KamMan Asian grocery and saw boxes of mangoes right by the entrance. This is the closest that I can get to mangoes that tastes like the ones back in the Philippines. It's close but it's not the real thing of course, nothing beats the taste of Philippine mangoes. These mangoes are grown in Mexico and they call it 'Champagne' mangoes. One box has 20 pieces and I paid $14.00 They probably got the seeds from our mangoes since it's very similar. I will post a mango dessert later. I tried it when we spent New Year's Eve at Dakak Beach Resort in the Philippines years ago.

Do you have a favorite dessert featuring mangoes?

    barb ang sarap nito, parang manggang tood sa atin....tood ba yon very thin ang seed?...ewan ko ano ang name sa tagalog...basta sa bisaya Tood.

    meron ganito dito, kung sa asia store ka bili ang mahal....4-5euro each,
    ganoon din sa german fruits shop....4.99euro isa....galing thai daw.

    kaya kung bumili ako, siguro 4-5 pcs, para lang sa mga boarders kong mga mahal ko sa buhay....

    lalo na si Inday ko,...ay naku pati seed, kainin....

    Inday kong si kim ba.....lol

    sigi, alis na ako, nandito na si liebling ko galing ng bike, tumingin sa mga fields-forest namin, kung nandoon pa or baka ninakaw .....lol

    Carlotz, punta ka dito sa MA. Tagal ka na namin hinihintay. Sana may mangoes pa that time. :)

    Hi Elba, oo nga, matamis.

    Mareng Ams, mahigpit pala masyado dyan sa FR? Kahit sa Asian stores walang mangga?

    Hi Joy, kaya nga pag gusto mo kumain, punta ka lang dito. Mag-imagine ka na lang. LOL


    Vks, manipis nga yung buto, parang sa atin talaga. Sa tingin ko galing talaga sa Phils. yung pinaka-puno dahil pareho talaga, almost. Sabi ni Tim, medyo lang daw. Mas masarap pa rin daw yung mangga sa atin. Yun parati ang breakfast nya na prepare ni mommy noong nagbakasyon kami in 2003.

    I've always heard how good mangoes are in the Philippines, but I've never had them there. Like you, I'm stuck with the Mexican mangoes.

    I'll have to try the mangoes next time I'm in the Philippines.
