Laing
Laing is also one of the classic Bicolano dishes around. While it may be more famous than others and is widely spread and known in the Philippines, it actually takes some serious skills to cook it.

Pancit Bato
This delicious dish originated from Camarines Sur, Bicol region in a small town known as ’Bato’. Unlike other pancits such as pancit malabon, Pancit Bato has shorter, thinner and curlier noodles. It can be served either in sabaw or guisado. You can also add toppings such as shrimp, veggies, and etc. for that extra flavor.

Pili Nuts
