Recommended Posts

So, anybody ever brought bagoong in your suitcase when u go to the US? (do they allow?) Or have it shipped? Or can u actually find it in the US? :( help?!?

(actually, i usually use belacan (malaysian version, and its made of shrimp) but i used bagoong when i was living in Davao City and its perfect substitute.. and there's no Malaysian thread here on VJ...)

Filipino stores carry it as well as other Asian stores. I actually prefer Thai bagoong. Just bought a jar of Barrio Fiesta bagoong in LA the other day. It was a bit pricey at $2.67 ++.

Awesome! Thanks Jose Rizal! I asked friends who studied in the US and they said they cant find belacan there. I will tell them to substitute with filipino/thai bagoong. :thumbs:

Thai bagoong is nearer to Malay bagoong. Filipino bagoong is nearer to Vietnamese bagoong.

Salamat po! :) I know its a silly topic to be asking, but i love cooking and a lot of malay dishes really do need bagoong in it else it will be tasteless (at least to me). I've asked the local post company here re sending food, and they have all said no-no.

You will be able to find belacan here but it would be an adventure. Lucky for us, we found 2 excellent Asian store. They even carry Indo Mee!!!! Not sure which city is your husband from but generally there are Asian stores in larger city.

Good luck!
