Chaolong

When talking about examples of regional fastfood such as batchoy in Iloilo, lomi in Batangas, pancit cabagan in Isabela, ngo hiong in Cebu, satti in Zamboanga, inasal in Bacolod and so on, for Puerto Princesa it’s the chaolong. Chaolong is a Vietnamese influenced rice noodle soup with meat (e.g. pork, or beef) and basil. It’s the broth that tastes Vietnamese.

Vetsin Condiment

image

Walking aimlessly in Naga streets one can see several kinalas eateries around the city and in one of those I took cover from rain, had a bowl of kinalas and noted that they have Ajinomoto vetsin condiment in the tables. It’s not usual to have vetsin as table condiment here in Philippines but it was a common sight in the humble eating tables in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
