Kamatis ligaw are wild tomatoes the size of berries which are occasionally found even in city markets. Small, red and sour, they are the coveted component of a sawsawan in partnership with fresh paho.
Another sawsawan is the sisi of Pampanga which are miniature oysters steeped in vinegar, salt, and calamansi juice. Its play of salt and sour on the tongue makes sisi a coveted companion for fried foods.
