Sharing to you my favorite food stops when traveling to Albay. Usually we drop by these stops when driving back to Naga, so it really depends when you get hungry during your trip or just have them as pasalubong.
• Bastian Food House 📍Polangui, Albay 📌 Must try: Empanada, they aso have good meals being served. Nice place for a stopover for your long drives. (I can't find my photo na 😞)
• Rice Puto and Baduya/Maruya/Sinapot📍 Near the Ligao/Guinobatan Boundary 📌 Must try: Rice Puto (Macapuno Flavor)
• Pinangat and Inolukan 📍Camalig Albay. Don't get confused. Here in Naga and Rinconada area, our Pinangat has a filling (may laman na either shrimp or crab meat particularly ugama), while in Camalig it's the Inolukan. Pinangat in Camalig is purely made of leaves. 📌 Try Let's Pinangat or other stores at the downtown area. At Let's they also sell good Chicharon hehe.
• Pure Suka / Coco Vinegar 📍Camalig, Albay
(Apologies, I keep on forgetting the exact barangay of the residences that sells the vinegar, but it's just along the highway, refer to photo)
