Tides Shangri-La was our 2nd stop during the 1st day of the 3 day Filipino Food Trip, Sooo Pinoy sponsored by Department of Tourism and Uniliver Food Solutions. ( First stop here: Shangri-La Mactan’s Executive Sous Chef Adolfo Lopez shares with us his childhood favorite dish which was prepared by his beloved mother during special occasions, thee traditional Ilonggo dish, Lau-ya.

Shangri-La's Executive Sous Chef Adolfo Lopez with his version of Lau-ya

Executive  Sous Chef Adolfo Lopez tells us that he boils the pork knuckle or pork belly then adds the remaining ingredients when half cooked. Some of the key ingredients of lau-ya is mango and nangka/jackfruit. Intriguing right?

Shangri-La's Pork Lau-ya

The soup flavor is interestingly sweet then turns into a mango-ish sour and then fades away after chewing on the tender pork belly. Be sure to try out Shangri-La Mactan‘s Layu-a every Filipino night at the Tides every Thursday!
