I asked A what he wanted for lunch and he requested something simple like fried pork (yeah here comes the carnivore again) served alongside a vegetable soup. He bought a 2L bottle of Sprite and suggested I cook the pork with it. Hmmm sounds really great and easy. Makes sense as Sprite has a taste similar to that of 7-Up. I am so sure one has heard of 7-Up pork chops or halabos na hipon cooked with this popular lemon-lime flavored carbonated soda. I served it with a simple petchay (a type of Chinese cabbage) soup – basically clear onion soup lightly seasoned with salt and pepper; sprinkled with chopped spring onion.
