Pinoy Ratatoy a la Cafe Juanita

This is the third recipe from the Doc Boy Vazquez series. The Pinoy Ratatoy is my favorite dish from the series.

  1. Hi there! Thanks for sharing the recipes you learned (and must have paid a small fortune for) in the Maya Kitchen. I live in HK and will be moving back to the States soon, so I am so glad I came upon your blog by accident. Just one question about this ratatoy: how did it taste??? I am thinking of serving it this Saturday evening for some fellow Filipino lady expatriates in HK. I have not tried this dish, whether the original or the one from Cafe Juanita. Would you say that this caters to Pinoy tastebuds? Thanks a lot!!!

    • Hi Chet! Thanks for visiting the blog. The Ratatoy is my personal favorite among the dishes taught to us that day. It’s very Filipino, slightly salty and savory. I think your Filipino friends will like it! Good luck!
