Fresh fruits. This part of the Philippines is filled with natural resources. It also means this part is also filled with fresh fruits too. You can trek in the mountains and eat fruits for free. Or you can just simply ask your friendly neighbour for some guavas, atis, coconuts, duhat, etc.. I remember when I was in the Ati tribe, I just asked for an atis fruit and they simply gave it to me.. We gave them jollibee in return :D
If you don’t feel like asking, just go to the market and buy yourself some fresh foods.
Chao Long – At last! I don’t need to go to Palawan or Vietnam to get a taste of delicious Vietnamese Chao Long dish. The favorite soup is now in Antique. Well done entrepreneurial souls! This motivates me to re-open my coffee shop again. Anyway, for those who wants to taste the vietnamese dish in Antique, go to San Jose, then ride a tricycle and tell them you want to go this restaurant that serves Chao Long in Dalipe.
Shells – This is considered exotic to many including me.. Until I found out it’s a normal dish in the province. You can buy them at the market and let your homestay host cook it for you. It can really be challenging to eat one mind you.. have lots of patience.
The interesting part is, if you live near the sea, you can eat shells for free.. just get it in the beach side..
The shells there looks like this. So have you seen sea shells by the sea shore lately? :D Aren’t they yummy?
