Bicol region’s reputation for loving their extremely hot and spicy dishes did not disappoint with the first dish to taste. What can be more spicy than a Chilli Wrap? For an appetizer. And yes it literally is Chilli peppers, with stuffings, folded inside a lumpia wrapper. You can really taste the heat of the chilli but it’s worth a try.
To top of the meal, desserts are served. You would be surprised to know that even something as common place as Ice cream has not escaped the spicy treatment! Worth a try!
So to conclude this culinary journey, what kind of impression does one get from Bicolandia cuisine? As Ms. Ravanilla have said, the Bicol region is known as the land of fire, and the Bicolanos are known for their ardent passion.
The Culinary Journey: Bicolandia runs from April 20-29 at Cafe Marco, Marco Polo Hotel. Go and challenge your taste buds!
