Palabok….Preparing this dish takes me a lots of patience, It took me almost one hour to finish it. But after that, as they say; “pag may tiyaga, may nilaga”…the hardworks really pay off. This are many versions of cooking palabok, but my one is from my wife’s grand mother’s cooking style and technique. Its loaded with seafoods….. Did you know that Seafood is an excellent source of many important minerals, including iodine, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. It is also rich in many vitamins, especially the B group. Eating seafoods two or three times a week can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
