My friend is on a faceless diet also known as Vegan diet. With the attempt to make her eat something outside from her diet. I bought salted anchovies (salted small fish). Yummy.And yes, It was a successful ploy.

Okra is especially delicious when dipped with Salted Anchovies. And if you have rice on the side and a delicious Chicken Adobo, who would not be tempted to eat ’em?
