Tausi is a filipino loan word from fukien chinese, meaning Tao= Beans and Si= Fermented/In Brine (salt and water) which simply means in english Fermented Black Beans. Tausi is just another common dish in the Philippines that is commonly served at lunch. i for one self, love this dish specially if the fish used is a grouper. you will surely love the unique taste of this dish that comes with an exquisite aroma that "tausi" gives!
