Biyahe Ni Drew S4 Ep. 35: Cagayan River Part 1 of 4

2016 • 7 mins

More than the popular river, Cagayan is also known as the home to the best blacksmiths in the country. They make knives of all kinds and sizes, one of which is the bolo knife, a long heavy tool with a one sided edge that comes close to a machete. Traveling is never complete without sitting down to fill one�s tummy. Here in Cagayan, their dishes are almost always highlighted by shellfishes. If you like veggies, you�ll definitely love the Ibanag Salad, it is a mix of shellfish and steamed vegetables like okra, eggplant, alugbati, bitter gourd, seaweeds, camote leaves, mangoes and atchara.
