Kakanon sa Bicol

This month in Travel Tuesdays, of the Travel Diva’s weekly meme theme is on food and travels (vacation). Do I say it right?

Anyway, here again another Bicolano food, in the image below, that I forgot the name. LOL! I practically don’t mind foods mixed with pork and beef and other foods that I am not used to eat, that’s why I just merely forgot the name of the food below. And more, our trip in Bicol region is almost a year ago. Who could remember the name then? LOL!

But off course, I still could remember the name of the restaurant where we ate. The restaurant was named Kakanon sa Bicol. If am not mistaken, yeah, I’m still a bit sure of the location because I and my cousin tried to take a walk over the area near the restaurant. It’s, I guess, 200 meters or more distantly away from SM City Naga.

Ok! Back to the food in the image above. If I still can remember it well, the food was mixed with taro leaves. According to my mum who is fond of eating this kind of food and even used to prepare it at home, the taro leaves is usually air dried before cooking. The dried taro leaves are then mixed with any spices, just for my mum, she uses just plain onions, garlic and more. Sometimes, my mum put meat on it also.

I haven’t personally tried the food above. So I can’t explain how it tastes. But my mum said it’s really spicy. Its spiciness is different from those foods (same way of preparing from the above image) because of the spices used.

Just bare with my tasty travel today! LOL!
