Tuslob-buwa is Pasil's signature food. It is a Cebuano exotic treat eaten with puso... making rice into a finger food.
Not for people with weak stomach. It is made of pork brain and liver with spices.
• pork brain, minced
• pork liver, minced
• spices - like salt, pepper, chilies
In a pan, mix the ingredients and cook until it turns into sauce or gravy. Simmer until the consistency of the sauce is thick. Bubbles will appear on top of the mixture thus it is also known as "dipping bubble".
Tuslob is a Visayan word for dip while buwa or bua is a Visayan word for bubbles.
To enjoy the tuslob-buwa experience, dunk your puso or rice-balls into the froth and eat it directly with your bare hands.
It is a budget-friendly food that can easily satisfy your hunger and fill your empty stomach. If you eat tuslob-buwa prepared by street vendors, all you need to pay are the rice balls that you'll consume that usually ranges between Php2.00 to Php3.00 each. Just be aware that it may not be clean and it is usually prepared in an open, busy environment so choose your trusted vendor or "suki".
Tuslob-buwa is best experienced in Pasil, Cebu. Pasil is believed to be the biggest seafood market not only in Cebu but in the Visayas region.
