Angono, the art capital of the Philippines, is not only a haven for artists but also a showcase of the Philippines’ rich culinary heritage. Talk about Angono and Balaw Balaw will eventually come up in the conversation. Balaw Balaw Restaurant and Art Gallery has been known to serve exotic dishes utilizing indigenous ingredients used by our forefathers like the balaw balaw (fermented shrimp sauce). They are also popular for serving exotic dishes like butt and balls Soup #5, the fried itik (native duck) and uok (giant coconut worms). While the staples are still there, the Vocalan family who run the restaurant still tries to innovate on traditional dishes to adapt them to the modern times.

Known mostly as a transit town and a gateway to the 8th wonder of the world, Nueva Vizcaya is now making a mark with its ever growing attractions and development. My last visit to the province surprised me with world-class dining restaurants while offering exciting exotic delicacies. Nueva Vizcaya definitely deserves a stop or even an overnight stay even just to try out these exciting Nueva Vizcaya eats.
The land-locked province of Nueva Vizcaya is agriculturally rich and nature still thriving in this part of Luzon. The land abundant with natural resources also reflects in their native cuisines. From my recent visit, I wasn’t surprised to see a few bugs on their table but these are cooked and ready-to-eat. Not something I would see every day. If one want to try this dishes, we visited All Day Exotic, a resto-bar offering exotic cuisines in their menu every day.
