Shopping for My "Magnifico" Philippine Menu

This Month's Film: Magnifico
Cuisine: Philippine

Shopping for my 'Magnifico' Philippine menu required several stops. One for the basics, one for the Asian ingredients, and another for the sushi-grade salmon to make the Kinnilaw. The basic list included eggs, flour, sugar, cooking oil, vermicelli noodles, evaporated milk, ginger, garlic, bell pepper, carrots, scallions, onion, cabbage, limes, chicken, pork, shrimp, and linguica. And for Asian specialty ingredients, chili garlic paste, sesame oil, coconut milk, soy sauce, patis, and rice vinegar.
