It was during lunch on our first day that we get to experience authentic Ivatan food. We were brought by the multi-cab driver we hired to Monica Fadullo’s cottage in Mahato, Batanes. It was certainly a great food trip experience there especially that we have a good view of the beach on top of the cottage. With the food served to us, 150 pesos per head is indeed worth it. 🙂
As Melo said in his blog, Idek is the most expensive fish there. It’s delicious and you should try it. 🙂
Ivatan is like pork adobo but it’s cooked dry and it’s crispy. It’s a must try for those who doesn’t have high blood 😀
Ivatan Laoya Baka is their version of Nilagang Baka. The soup tastes good but the beef would require you to have awesome beef slicing skills using your fork and spoon. I guess they didn’t have much time to boil the beef so that it would become tender.
