Unique and unabashedly vibrant, the featured specialties brim with timeless tales and customs. Ciento Quinse, an extinct Chavacano dish, combines seafood with liempo in a long-forgotten, tradition. A better-known delicacy is the Pancit Langlang of Imus, Cavite, first made popular in El Filibusterismo by Dr. Jose Rizal and made with sotanghon noodles, chicken meat and eggs, quail eggs, shrimps, and vegetables. The Warik Warik of Northern Luzon is reminiscent of the Kapampangan sisig and the Ilocano dinakdakan. Once part of a ritual invoking the wisdom of the gods, this contains liempo cut and choice offal infused with ginger and other aromatics, along with liver spread for a modern take on an ancient, communal meal.
