    Try the Local Batangas Cuisine and Delicacies

    by machomikemd Updated Oct 28, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Taal Town, being the Heritage Town, is the culinary capital of the Regional Batangas Province Cuisine of which they have some difference in the food from the Local Southern Tagalog Cuisine and you should try these goodies like the adobong dilaw, which is the national dish, the pork or chicken adobo cooked in turmeric instead of a soy sauce mix, the suman sa lihiya (sticky rice cake soaked in lye) and filled with macapuno or mango bits, the Panotsa (local peanut brittle), the tapang taal (cured pork meat instead of cured sirloin beef meat), the local fresh lake tawilis (fresh lake sardines) and the sought after fish, the maliputo (giant trevally) in sinigang, the kapeng baraki (brewed liberica cofee) to name a few.

    Fondest memory: sumptous local cuisine and delicacies

    Fruit Trees and Lots of Bamboo

    by freddie18 Written Jul 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Just by driving someone along the Taal streets and roads leading to the town, you will encounter fruit bearing trees like Coconut, Mango, & Banana. You will also find sugar cane plantation and bamboo everywhere. The latter two are abundant in any part of Batangas including Taal.

    I am posting all the pictures of trees I mentioned above for those who have not seen one. Enjoy!

    Fondest memory: I always love to look outside the window whenever I travel and that includes my travel to Taal.

    How to Make Barong By Hand

    by freddie18 Updated Jul 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I am posting pictures of local people of Taal who actually do the hand embroidery and bead insertions in a jusi material. Making them by hand is no secret. Stores would let you watch them. Afterall, this kind of business is an art and......needs a lot of patience!

    When you visit Taal, take a look, they will show you how 'easy' it is to finish a men shirt.

    Fondest memory: I miss the ambiance and talking with pleasant local people.
