After my friend Pette Santos Jorolan described the paksiw na bangus that she serves in her restaurant, Everybody's Cafe, I knew I just had to have a taste of it.
According to Pette, the bangus they use comes from either Dagupan or Bataan.

Mr John Pette, aged 42, bought the Fairlawns Hotel for pounds 305,000 from the national Swallow Group in 1984.
Mr Pette, who gave up his job as a hotel manager for Swallow to take on the run-down three-star establishment, now estimates it to be worth around pounds 3.5million.
