2.50 Hotcakes in Laoag

Hotcake Vendor

“Now you see them, now you don’t” hotcakes on the streets of Laoag, flipping all day in front of the Laoag Central Elementary School, at least for now. See them too sometimes at the night market.

Grilled to a sunshiney yellow and then dipped in sugar is a dollop of batter made with flour, evaporated milk, a driblet of egg (according to manong), margarine and heaven knows. At 2 pesos and 50 centavos a piece, no one buys just one piece. Cheap thrill, yum-yum!
