  1. You’ve created another very attractive dish, Dedy. I would have to taste it, though, before trying to prepare it. I would hate to go through the trouble of making the dish, only to find out I do not like it. 🙂

  2. We cook brains as well in the Philippines but it is mixed with other offal like heart, liver and porks ear. Grilled and served on hot plate. I wonder this would be yummy as well.
