Bopis – Pinoy Food Recipe


Bopis is so popular here in the Philippines. In the afternoon when the sun sets, there are so many street ventors throughout the streets here in our place sells deep fried Bopis. They usually stick small pieces of Bopis in a stick and deep fry it in cooking oil. Then you can buy one of them for only 2 pesos each. The taste is good because I think they marinated it. Bopis is also an amazing dish for the family. This Pinoy Food recipe will have your family’s stomachs full after cooking it. As usual, it should be partnered with rice to make you fuller.
