Say hello to sweaters and goodbye tank tops, tan lines, and sun-kissed. Because of the cold breeze, the rainy season brings, it is very timely to wear your turtle necks, knitted tops, and jackets to keep you warm and fight the cold weather. During rainy days, people preferred staying at home. Due to the pandemic, people don't usually go out even though the situation is way different now than the situation for the last two years of the pandemic. It is also very timely to look for a place that is very accessible to you and your essentials. Vista Heights by Vista Residences in Manila is ready for occupancy if you consider getting one.

Aside from this, it is accessible to the supermarkets; you can wait for your food delivery for a short period or walk near the store to buy your comfort food.  

 Aside from spending more time in bed and enjoying your condo living by hiding under the blanket during the cold weather, one thing that goes well with the cold weather is food.

Filipinos love to eat no matter what the season is, don't we? Cooling themselves during summer with servings of yummy halo-halo, buko pandan, ice scramble, and other cold treats. On the contrary, during the rainy season, people love and craving for rich and creamy Sopas, flavorful Lomi, especially Batangas Lomi, steaming bowls of Bulalo, and more! These are some of the best foods for the rainy season in the Philippines. To learn more about these soul-warming foods, here is the list of a perfect food for the rainy season.

Lugaw and Arroz Caldo

Who doesn't love this essential food during the cold weather? Rice porridge or lugaw is very easy to make. It is made up of simple ingredients that you will easily find in your home. Rice is the main ingredient in creating your Lugaw at home. Ginger will give this an aroma that you will love; add a bit of garlic and egg.

On the other hand, Arroz Caldo is likely similar to Lugaw. The difference between the two is that Arroz Caldo uses glutinous rice, which has a stickier consistency, and chicken adds extra flavor. Same as Lugaw, you can top this with ginger, garlic bits, salted egg, or even just a hardboiled egg which is preferred by some for their Arroz Caldo, and a bit of Calamansi drops to add an extra twist. You may add fish sauce or patis to adjust the taste. You may also add pepper and salt if you think you missed putting it on or more while cooking.

This is a perfect food for the rainy season. Indeed, as these two very easy recipes will give you warmth during this cold weather. Each bowl will make you feel better whether you feel a bit under the weather.

Bulalo or bone marrow soup might classify as a kind of Nilaga – hence, there is not much difference in the ingredients and the cooking process. The meat used in bulalo is the beef shank with bone marrow that is still inside the bone. The bulalo meat was known for melting in your mouth – it practically fell off the bone showing how tender it is. The recipe for Batangas Bulalo recommends cooking and boiling for 4 hours! But – the longer it cooks, the more the broth gives comfort and perfectly compliments the cold weather. Here's the recipe for Panlasang Pinoy to enjoy bulalo at home during the rainy season.

  • 2 Beef shank
  • Bok choy or petchay
  • 2 Cobs of corn (cut into three parts)
  • ½ cabbage (the whole leaf individually detached)
  • 34 ounces of water
  • Two tablespoons whole peppercorn
  • One onion
  • Green onions
  • Fish sauce, to taste (optional)

It's up to you how much you want to do. You can adjust the recipes above if you prefer more or less, or if you have your recipe to add to the bulalo. Better to serve this hot – share this with your loved ones and enjoy! Just a piece of advice – watch your health, and know your limitations and conditions before eating what is good or bad for you.
