You've never tried it? It's the best!

(Trivia for those who don't know: diniguan comes from the word "pinadugo" which means "to bleed". It refers to the ingredients of the dish, which include pork stew and pig's blood. Yikes! The dish is a very dark brown to black in color, and can have a variety of textures depending where the dish was cooked. In the south, the dish is usually wet, while up north, the dish is a bit more dry and coagulated. )

^ I love our local cuisine, and I try to try all the native delicacies. Every try burong dalag? (fermented mudfish) It smells bad and tastes kinda funny... :P

Someone mentioned balut. For those who don't know, these are incubated duck eggs. Since they're incubated, the chick is in its developmental stage, so you can actually see a little, black duck. :O

The real balut eaters eat EVERYTHING, even the chick. I know many people who just eat the albumen (it's a bit hard in balut) and yolk, along with the "soup" (the amniotic fluid of the egg, which is actually the equivalent "urine" of the developing chick because of its nitrate contents)... but eat the CHICK... yum! It tastes like chicken. ahaha!

There was a diniguan that my uncle served us last time I went to ilocos. Instead of pork, they used chicharon bulaklak... Oh god... the horror of it all.... I could feel the cholesterol in my blood rising...

(Trivia... again: chicharon is a form of fried pork skin, which is crunchy and absolutely a MUST HAVE snack when quaffing down beers. There are different preparations for chicharon, one of which is "chicharon bulaklak" - which literally means "fried pork skin flowers". In this preparation, not only the skin, but the underlying fat is fried, which causes the pieces to clump together, forming what looks like little flowers. )
