tuslob buwa setup with wok and puso

For Cebuanos, tuslob buwa is not just an afternoon snack or a sumptuous, filling meal. Every table with a tuslob buwa setup sits a group of friends or family members gathered around enjoying food and each other’s company, dipping their rice balls in the wok full of boiling pig brain sauce and laughing their troubles away.

This popular street food has become a staple in our modern culture that several restaurants have co-opted the business concept of this communal chow and added an exclusivity element into it. Today, you can find several restaurants with tuslob buwa as their specialty dish.

What is tuslob buwa?

Tuslob buwa is a uniquely Cebuano street food originally sold in barangay Pasil and Ermita and in some other parts in Cebu. It used to be served in one big wok where hungry patrons would just dip their own puso and share the pig brain sauce with others.

It is a tasty dish, but the communal nature of it turned off most people, so now there are establishments offering tuslob buwa that comes with an exclusive dining setup and stove to interested customers.

The words tuslob buwa literally translates “to dip into bubbles.”

Tuslob buwa’s main ingredient is the pig’s brain. It is mixed with liver, onions, and oil to create a bubble-filled dish. Sometimes, shrimp is added to add taste to the dish.

The preparation is simple. All you need is a wok and the mixture provided to you to achieve that saucy dipping.  This will be best served with your puso (hanging rice) that you will dip into the pan. Ice-cold soft drinks on the side are recommended to complete your street dining experience.
