Dinuguan (Pork Blood Stew)
DINUGUAN is a Tagalog term, literally translated as “blooded”, which refers to the Native Filipino dish, full of flavor of pork blood and meat. Though some, do not eat Dinuguan for some religious reasons, most Filipinos crave and fave for this dish, paired with steaming white rice or Puto, a Filipino rice cake. Dinuguan would reflect how Filipinos love cooking and eating exotic dishes like Adobong Paa ng Manok, and many more.
