Zamboanga is a repository of ethnolinguistic groups from Mindanao, enriching the destination’s foods and cultures. Meet the Tausug pastil, which resembles an empanada in a savory version. Call it a vegan empanada filled with sauteed mung bean sprouts encased in crispy dough.
What makes it exciting? It is served with a bottle of warm vinegar simmered in spices with a hint of sweetness.
The perfect combination of textures, acidity, and spices allows you to eat more and more.
Grab a bite of this pleasurable snack at Dennis Coffee Garden!
