Sauteed San Marino Tuna Flakes and Talong for the Chinese New Year

Aside from being the love month, this February also coincides with the upcoming Chinese New Year. In the Philippines, it is estimated that we have about 10% of the population who has a mix of Chinese blood ancestry.

Set on February 19 this 2015, our Chinese brothers and sisters who follow the lunar calendar based on the moon and astrological bodies celebrate the Chinese New Year with a lot of festivities which of course includes food!

Although the tikoy recipe (rice cake) would first come into mind for Filipinos, the Chinese cuisine is rich with a lot of other dishes as well, including healthy ones!

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, let’s check out this Chinese New Year-inspired Filipino dish which we made to have a Chinese twist.
