Thank you for sharing these recipes to me because it helps a lot to me since I am an HRM student. And I hope you will help me to find out the specialty dish of Boholanos since I was assigned to cook a best Boholano dish. Thank you, God Bless and Keep it up.. :-)

My husband was born in Manila. I was born in California so I have tried to learn to cook various dishes for him as he very much likes "down home" foods. I was looking for various recipes to try and I will definitely try this pinakbet without the bagoong. Thank you.
