If you are in the Philippines you can buy Bagoong or Sauteed shrimp Paste for a very low price but here in the US you can buy this one for $3.49. We don’t have Filipino store that I know of here in Pittsburgh but there are lots of Asian store (korean store and chinese store or japanese store). This bagoong is made in the Philippines so it sure taste good hehe of course Philippine product. You can even get a spoonful of free shrimp paste when you buy green mango along the side walk. Thank to Lulu of Mouths Delight for the bagoong.
