I like spicy food, not just because of its flavor but the appetite it gives me whenever I eat. Bicol is one of the regions in the Philippines which is very known to spicy food. Actually, the region is always associated with spicy food. As a matter of fact, the region hold an annual chili-eating contest every year; eating kilos of the spice.
My mother is a Bicolana which explains why I have this fondness to spicy flavor. It runs in the family, I suppose. Whenever I visit Bicol, aside from going to CWC and do wakeboarding, what I always look forward to is to eat at Graceland Baker's Plaza or Bigg's Diner and taste their best seller meals. These two restaurants are among the most famous local restaurants in Bicol.
