What a great way to tell the story of one’s culture and heritage than food. Experience the tradition, be a coconut baron for a day or two in Casa San Pablo a Bed and Breakfast in San Pablo City, Laguna. Immerse yourself in a cozy country inn surrounded by trees and seven lakes.
It is a place for foodies. Since it is situated in an old coconut plantation and seven lakes, prepare your pallets for food inspired by its surroundings. Most of their cooking involves coconuts paired with their fresh water harvests. You can even have an upclose native cooking experience at the Casa like their local delicacy Kulawo. This dish has an unconventional technique to capture a unique smokey flavor of gata. Freshly grated coconut meat to be tossed with burning coal then the gata extraction. Mix the gata with garlic, onion, coconut vinegar plus salt and pepper to taste then pour over the grilled eggplant.
Or go shrimping at Lake Pandin and cook it back at the Casa.
