Karlo's Gourmet Tuyo : Spicy Tuyo in Olive Oil

Do you want to take your cravings for your favorite tuyo to another level? Chef Karlo Mercado of Karlo's Gourmet and Coffee at Jack's Ridge Resort and Restaurant has recently launched his version of a tuyo with a twist - Karlo's Gourmet Tuyo . It's an appetizing fish delicacy in a bottle. Karlo's Gourmet Tuyo is made from dried herrings soaked in olive oil, garlic, chili and other spices. What I love about his concoction is the absence of vinegar. It is not sour unlike some of the ones I've tried before. This is perfect for those who doesn't like vinegar. The saltiness of the tuyo is just enough and the presence of the garlic gives a well-balanced, delicate, and nutty flavor. Adding flavor to this already savory dish is the red chili pepper. It has some kick but not too spicy so I'm sure kids will also enjoy it as much as the adults.  Karlo's Gourmet Tuyo is prepared manually so you will be guaranteed with its best quality. To order,
