Spicy Pork Tero Tero (isaw)

Have you tried eating pig intestine? On my back ground is a bottle of beer, Yes I am a beer drinker.  i love to drink beer especially when this kind of appetizer is in my table. I remember during my teenage life preferably at the age of 14-17, I am a heavy drinker. I started early because usually I am a alcohol runner in our town. Meaning I buy beers on my “old fellows” and in return I get a free drink and appetizer. I grew up in a place where every day after playing a basketball game specially if we win that game, we always have a mini celebration. We buy beer and mix with gin and since there is a mini cafe serving best appetizer such as sisig and this one. It is super spicy adobo style pork isaw (tero tero). Well adobo is very famous especially when cooking exotic food such as intestines, lizards, snakes, frogs and many more.
