  2. Great food and excellent preparations. Professionally done! Pulutan – raw fish. Most Japanese lives 100 years or longer in an island where fish is their daily food. Ilocanos and other tribes in Northern part of the Philippines have one of the longest life spans in Philippines.

    Pinakbet, one of the staples of the Ilocano diet.

    Ilocanos boast of a somewhat healthy diet heavy in boiled or steamed vegetables and freshwater fish, but are particularly fond of dishes flavored with bugguong, fermented fish that is often used instead of salt. Ilocanos often season boiled vegetables with bugguong monamon (fermented anchovy paste) to produce pinakbet. Local specialties include the abuos, soft white larvae of ants, and “jumping salad” or tiny, live shrimp with kalamansi juice. Another food that is popular for many Ilocanos is marunggay. It is a good condiment for meat soup called la’uya (e.g. tinola) or it can be mixed with the famous dinengdeng, a soup made of mainly vegetables with prawn aramang. Most households grow this tree in their backyards and usually offered free for all the neighbors who may want them. Many Ilocanos from Hawai’i are fond of eating them. The Ilocano people are also known to be the first ethnic group in the Philippines to eat the larvae and eggs of abuos (weaver ants). The practice has since been infused as well with other ethnic groups in northern Luzon.
