WATCH: How to Assemble a Filipino-Style Sunday Brunch Board
Ah, the charcuterie board—a staple at fancy dinners, a brunchtime favorite, and a classic example of food-we-love-to-post-on-Instagram. In its purest form, the charcuterie board is a wooden serving board with an assortment of cured meats, cheeses, bread, fruits, and nuts. But now that it’s also a darling of the internet, the charcuterie board has been tweaked and reinvented in a lot of different ways.
Have you ever seen a Filipino-style brunch board, though?
You can probably imagine what that would look like, and it’s easy enough to dream up your own recipes based on your favorite Filipino food. In fact, you may not even need to cook anything, because you can order everything you need from Mang Inasal. Give this a whirl for your next Sunday brunch at home.
First things first: have a wooden board ready, and make sure it’s big enough for your food spread. Make sure to have a banana leaf, too, for that authentic Pinoy vibe.
Then, start with rice. Put it in a bowl or directly on the board. Then, lay on the mains. Mang Inasal’s Chicken Inasal Paa Large and Spicy Chicken Inasal Pecho Large, which are now available in a Family Size of four pieces, are ideal for this Also, don’t forget the chicken oil and your favorite condiments, like soy sauce, vinegar, calamansi, and chili.
For added variety to your mains, consider getting the Liempo Inasal, together with the Pork Barbecue that’s available in a serving of 10 sticks.
Meanwhile, the Chicken Empanada is a side dish that deserves a spot on the brunch board. It’s loaded with chicken chunks, potatoes, and raisins. Save a spot for Palabok, too, to add some variety to your Sunday carbs. It now comes in family size, so that’s good news for the family members who have sworn off rice. This one oozes with a heap of palabok sauce and pork chunks, with a variety of toppings like pork, smokey tinapa, crunchy chicharon, boiled egg, and green onions.
To better complete your brunch board, make sure to have desserts on the sides. Leche Flan is a good idea.
