Either expensive stuff in premium delis, or I can go straight to a duck farmer. Used to be we can only get duck fat and foie gras in the delis, and maybe imported from France or Indochina, but now we have local farms making foie gras with fattened ducks (not force fed by tube, just a high overhead on keeping their food containers full) after somebody probably realized, "hey, we got one province next to Manila chock full of ducks, and we're making eggs that give foreigners nightmares instead of foie gras on top of whole ducks for Peking Roast?" I'm gonna check where I can buy the stuff but for the most part I think hotels and restaurants probably get all the stuff.
Speaking of ducks, one other bird we have here that's also delicious is the ostrich. We farmed them supposedly for a dictator who set up a safari in one of the islands (why it wasn't made as a tiger reserve instead is beyond me), but now many of the non-traditional Filipino restaurants serve them. My favorite is the Duck Tenderloin Steak cooked in the Tagalog steak sauce. The traditional steak is a mix of salpicao flavor and Swiss steak techniques - thin slices of sirloin browned then cooked slow in a lot of extra oil, soy sauce, and stir-fried onions (and a bit of garlic). For thicker cuts like Duck tenderloin (the same restaurants do the same with beef ribeye or tenderloin), I think it's a quick sear in oil where the onions were stir-fried, then seasoned with soy sauce and popped in the oven for a few minutes, then served hot without any of the liquids save for what's caramelized on the steak. The crust won't be as crisp owing to all the sauce it cooks in but the soy sauce (maybe honey too) caramelizes well, and it comes out medium rare and as tender as better grades of beef. The $12 that would get a Grade 2 beef tenderloin steak here would get double the size of an Ostrich tenderloin steak.
Ya, it depends on what diet you're on. But the keto is all about fat. You eat pretty much no carbs so that your body is forced to use fat as energy. So you need to eat extra fat just for your body not to fall into starvation mode - keeps the weight on because you're not eating enough. Your body needs one energy source: carbs or fat.
Looks like I'm gonna try eating mostly sirloin and broccoli, but no rice, noodles, and potatoes next month
