Dried Fish of Banica


          Roxas City is not only known for the fresh sea foods, but also for the dried variety – tuyo, pinakas, dried pusit, boneless dilis, hibi, etc.  On our way to Olutayan Island, we took the boat at the Banica Wharf, a small pier about five minutes drive from the Roxas City Plaza.  I was there early so I had time to look around.

The "freshest" tuyo ... not too salty too.

My family's pasalubong favorite: Boneless dilis

          There are stalls and stalls of dried sea foods (primarily dried fish) lining both sides of the street leading up to the wharf.  Most of the goods sold here come from either Capiz or nearby Masbate.  They take pride in their dried fish which are always “fresh” – not the “bilasa” fish unsold in the wet market and re-cycled as dried fish.  These are fish freshly caught from Sibuyan Sea and immediately sun-dried to perfection. 

Hibi (dried shrimps) - perfect flavoring for any vegetable dish

Not really dried sea foods ... bottled oysters in vinegar

      So when you are in Roxas City, drop by Banica and buy some dried fish for pasalubong.  They are great for breakfast, paired with garlic fried rice! Yum.

These are the (slow) boats that go to Masbate everyday.
