Hi ChichaJo!:-) I just discovered your blog today through your Yahoo article (Asian stir-fry dish). Even for just a short period, I'm loving your blog already.;-) Curacha also abound in the waters of my father's hometown of Barcelona (here in Sorsogon province, the locals call it "pawik", maybe because of its resemblance to a pawikan). Our friends here in Sorsogon City loved it when they tasted it during one of our get-togethers here at home.:-) I'm now one of your subscribers/followers. I don't cook regularly but would love to try one of your recipes when my hubby comes home (he's a seaman).

2008-05-26T05:54:00.000+08:00

we call these crustaceans 'kusimay'in ilocano. they abound in the deep sea along the coast of northern luzon particularly claveria in cagayan.they do not grow as big as pictured to be 1 crab in a gallon bag 'tho.a six inch long one is considered big by our standards.other names include 'kona', 'samoan'crabs and are found all over the pacific coast (samoa, fiji etc)including australia.
a conservation initiative has been started in respnse to comments about baby 'kusimay' crabs being harvested indiscriminately. you can go to the photo gallery of the claveria, cagayan official website : lakay-lakay.com.

2008-02-23T09:15:00.000+08:00

I now know where the Alavar restaurant is in Quezon City: Scout Ybardolaza very near Sacred Heart Church in Kamuning. The restaurant is close to the corner of Timog and Sct. Ybardolaza. Just order the curacha (Php900/kilo prepared with Alavar sauce). The other fried things weren't as good.

Hi Jojo! I heard that Alavar's (of Zamboanga) has a branch in Quezon City...I've never been so I don't know where exactly. As for curacha, I have seen these crabs in the market here but very sporadically...I don't know where to find a regular supplier...wish I could be more help!
