    The first time was in Roberson's Mall food court. This time it was Hipper Mart meat department. What did they do? They sold and charged me for ground BEEF when they really knowingly delivered ground PORK! Why would they do that? pesos of course. In doing so they make a bigger profit and destroy a very good meal. Seems to me DTI should be able to do some thing about this kind of eval profit taking. It's a shame there is no "Bate and Switch" law here. I am not against eating pork but when there is a very good recipe calling for ground BEEF, ground PORK is just going to completely change the taste and in this case not for the better. It angers me to think that retail businesses feel the need to CHEAT the public just for a few pesos. For you that do this kind of beef/pork switch-a-ru, be advised that my tung and my nose knows the difference. I will eat this recipe any way but I will also cuss Hipper Mart with every bit.

    The next time you are in Hipper Mart watch out for the rats. That is another story.

    For quality meat, i like JLH (old don atilano) on the boulevard. Seems to me Belcris quality in smaller quantities, lots of other goodies and fresh baguettes after noon...

    Got some lovely Italian style bread (long loaf) and 'hard Italian cheese' (they didn't know the correct name) this week. Great together and the bread goes hard after a day, but warms up nice and soft in the microwave. Very good for dipping too - need to buy some balsamic.

    Parmigiano is the name of the cheese.

    Actually, I don't think it was. There was some real Parmigiana labelled as such and more expensive, as you would expect. The one we bought did not seem as hard as Parmesan. Maybe it was just a cheaper, lower standard of Parmo cheese.
