FOOD: 10 Ilocano Food That Will Make You Crave For

One of the things that we do while travelling is tasting what food the local offers. Whenever you go and visit Ilocos provinces, make sure to find and try their local cuisines and delicacies. Here I list 10 of their original delicacies:

DINENGDENG (INABRAW)

dinengdeng2b2

Dinengdeng is a dish of the Ilocano people of the Philippines, similar to pinakbet. It is classified as a bagoong monamon soup based dish. Unlike pinakbet, dinengdeng contains fewer vegetables and contains squash and more bagoong monamon soup base.

DINAKDAKAN

Dinakdakan is a grilled pig’s head parts (e.g. ear, nape, face) and offal (e.g. tongue, liver, intestines) blended with pig’s brain. It is a very popular dish in Ilocos region. For the Ilocanos, this Dinakdakan dish is an epitome when it comes to “finger food” (pulutan) to accompany beer, liquor, wine, or cocktail drinks. It is a very authentic dish and one hundred percent (100%) Filipino.

IGADO
igado
Igado is a popular Ilocano dish made from strips of meat, liver, and other internal organs such as kidney, heart, and intestines. This dish reflects the influence of the Spanish cuisine as the name “Igado” was derived from the Spanish term “higado” which means “liver”. A tell-tale story was once told that the Spaniards pronounced it as Higado but was understood by the natives in the region as Igado. Time passed and the name Igado was accepted as one of the popular Ilocano dishes.

POQUI-POQUI

This Ilocano vegetable dish is essentially made of eggplant, tomatoes, and eggs. A deceivingly simple Filipino recipe, this dish is a tasty meatless recipe one has to try.

SINANGLAO

Sinanglaw, a popular soup from Vigan, but nowadays I see it everywhere, even at hometown in Agoo, La Union. Sinanglaw is oftentimes sold in carinderias along the main road of the city especially near bus or jeepney stations. It is serve in the night until dawn. It’s a soup good enough to warm yourself from cold night and fills an empty stomach. If you want to make your own sinanglaw, the ingredients such as beef innards, tendon, face and bile are available in local market meat section. It is sold in set but you still have option to buy only the ingredients you like. For the hint of sourness, kamias is usually used but tamarind or white vinegar is also good substitute.
