Special Inihaw na Pusit (Grilled Squid) Recipe

Who will not be salivating if you see a squid being grilled? You would probably want to grab that stick of goodness! What more if it is stuffed with tomatoes, spices, and cheese! Yes, cheese! Some would say that it would make things off, but do not judge until you have tried it, we say. It is tasty! Tangy, cheesy, squishy, moist. Oops! Do not overcook your squid. It will be tough to eat, and you will not like that. You can also try dipping it in spicy vinegar. And oh, it is also best paired with your steamed rice!
