Vlog Ep. 245: Lugaw | Goto | Arroz Caldo

This episode of #BaduyPride was all about dissecting the differences between several rice porridge dishes, namely lugaw, goto, arroz caldo, and even congee thrown in for good measure. Yes, this is similar to the previous episode about the different tomato sauce-based stews and it was suggested by the same person around the same time. But given how many viewers joined us tonight, it certainly made for a surprisingly popular discussion!

And porridges occupy such a special place in our communal experience - they have the comfort of soup but also feel more nourishing, mainly because of the rice component. And it was certainly a delightful exploration together with the viewers as we shared different stories related to these dishes and when they were most important. And whether you're part of Tobie's camp about lugaw being "chocolate-free champorado" or you also think arroz caldo is "green lugaw" meant to be eaten cold, there's room for you in our circle of geekery.
