At first we thought Let’s Pinangat was a call to action, but it’s not. It’s actually the name of the owner, Letty who is one of Bicol’s pride for her pinangat. I’ve never heard of pinangat until our recent road trip to Bicol. Pinangat is Bicol’s version of laing, which is a blend of ground pork, coconut milk, diced shrimps & chili, wrapped in gabi leaves and cooked in clay pots – locally called “palayok.”
Let’s Pinangat is located in the little town of Camalig, Albay. It’s right along the Pan-Philippine Hiway (left side, if traveling south) and roughly 11 km north of Legazpi City. It looks like your typical eatery (turo-turo) but you’ll notice a lot of cars parked in front.
Aside from pinangat, you can order other local delicacies at reasonable prices. An order of pinangat costs P 50 each. We ordered a pinangat, bicol express, lechon kawali & 2 cups of rice all for only P 200.
So next time you’re in Bicol, Let’s Pinangat!
