Bawang is the Filipino word for Garlic. Bawang is one composition of the Holy Trinity of Philippine cooking. We always use Bawang in all of the dishes we prepare or cook there is no doubt about it.

In the Philippines where I was born and grew up, the smell of lots of pounded and finely chopped Bawang is a joy. In Germany, the smell and taste of Bawang is not a welcome treat, but still even if i can not buy fresh Bawang, I buy finely ground Garlic available in the spice and herb section of the local supermarkets

Knoblauch is the German word for Garlic.
