2017 • 18 mins

For its pilot episode, Kara travels to Bicol to learn the origin of the popular dish �Bicol Express�. And to make it more exciting, Kara joins a group of fishermen as they catch balaw or shrimp directly from the sea. The balaw gives this spicy food an extra flavor. Bicolanos are known to be �uragon� or brave, thus the spicy characteristic of most of their dishes. But not everyone knows that the name Bicol Express came from the train that used to travel from Manila to Bicol.
