Paksiwan

Passing through the highway between Pili and Sag├▒ay in Camarines Sur I’ve noticed several paksiwan carinderia patronized by motorists. Curious about what kind of paksiw they have, I decided to have one in a place named Isarog View Paksiwan in Ocampo town. And so it’s not the paksiw I had in mind but it was boiled beef soup or beef nilaga. Just like the nilaga in Bacolod minus the atsuete.

Abo Dried Fish

I grew up eating fried fresh abo in Bacolod but in Camarines Sur salted dried abo is quite common.
