The Chicharon Macaroni

I only see them roaming around public market and I only see them twice a week. Saturdays and Wednesdays – our town public market days. They are carrying a large clear plastic filled with chicharon like product, plastic thrice the size of regular rice sack. On the left hand is a 1.5 L Coke bottle full of chili and vinegar.

It was strange. I have never seen their product in any permanent store establishments. I have never seen it on groceries, sari-sari and supermarkets.

I drove her to town clinic for the third anti-tetanus injection. The clinic is just next to public market and that day was a market day – Wednesday.

I called the vendor and asked what he was selling? He said it was chicharon macaroni. Wow! I thought it was a chicharon baboy or a chicharon bituka. It really looked like a pig small intestines.

How much it cost? Ten pesos per cup. The cup he was using was the bottom of 1.5 L Coke bottle. The height was about 1/4 of the original size.

I bought ten pesos. He put my order in cellophane. He gave another cellophane with vinegar.

chicharon macaroniThe flavor? No shocking flavor and aroma. Just bland and crunchy. It was borrowing the hot and spicy flavor of chili and vinegar concoction. I never like eating it without a dip.

It was a chicharon macaroni. I was not able to extract more information. How and where it is made?

I think it is a good chicharon baboy alternative. It might be better than Less-Fat Pork Chicharon.

  • Hi! I’m just new in this site, as i read the article I kept on reading it even the comments. It’s been 2 years now since my family engaged to a small business “chicharunan” where we cook chicharon macaroni and chicharon lapad (kropek).

    We are distributing our chicharon in some market in Marikina, and Pasig, and drop some to other sari sari store along the way.

    We are also serving to those people who wants to buy whole sale. If you are interested, we will do delivery.

  • Macaroni is a variety of dry pasta made with durum wheat. Elbow macaroni noodles normally do not contain eggs, (although they may be an optional ingredient) and are normally cut in short, hollow shapes; however, the term refers not to the shape of the pasta, but to the kind of dough from which the noodle is made. Although home machines exist that can make macaroni shapes, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion..^’.

    Good day
