After rice, galunggong
MetadataShow full item record
Two everyday Filipino fare are most important to local residents today -- rice and galunggong (round scad or hard-tail mackerel). These two items already comprise a simple meal the most Filipinos can afford. Still, many would consider this a luxury with the prices of both rice and galunggong reaching unprecedented levels lately. Galunggong, meanwhile, has had its effective role in unseating a director-President, when the candidate Cory Aquino compared the price of galunggong before Marcos came to power and its much higher price before the snap elections in the mid-1980s.
