The Philippines is home to a thousand species of fish; but of all these, no other fish has captured the attention of Filipinos quite like the bangus. In fact, it's so popular that it was even named as the country's national fish. Bangus, or milkfish, is abundant in many provinces making it a quintessential player in regional cuisines. Bangus is a good source of protein, Vitamin B6, Phosphorus, Selenium and Omega-3, as well as Niacin, Protein and Vitamin B12. It is prized for it’s firm, milky-white flesh and can be cooked in a number of ways.

I recently discovered Bang Bang Special Crispy Bangus which sells amazingly crispy boneless bangus in three awesome flavors: original, cheese, and salted egg. What makes them different from other establishments that sell bangus? For one, their bangus is indeed crispy from the fish head down to its tail. And it's huge in size too--so that alone gives one value for their money. And because it's huge in size, it is good for sharing too.

I was able to try their salted egg variant and although I'm not really a fan of salted egg, I was surprised to like it. The salted egg flavors on top of the crispy bangus aren't too overpowering. It tastes just right to give the fish some more umami flavors. They've got crunch in every mouthful. Regardless if you use their cucumber vinegar dipping sauce or on its own, you'd better be ready to ask for another helping of rice.

It's the kind of food you'd keep coming back to again and again. And since it's good enough for sharing, this is the kind of food that you won't be ashamed to bring to potlucks or family reunions. If you're too lazy to cook, have them delivered to your doorstep for an instant awesome lunch or dinner.
