How to eat hot and spicy food - Bicol Express

While in Legazpi City for the SEMCON Bicol event, one dish I got to enjoy is the famous Bicol Express. It is definitely a must try for those who are avid fans of hot and spicy food. It is also easy to prepare as it just requires frying or saute of garlic, onion, ginger, pork, and chili peppers. Then coconut milk gets added to the mixture. To tone down its spiciness, some add pineapple to it. Other variants include adding bagoong alamang and baguio beans.

Expert hot and spicy food eaters advise not to drink anything while enjoying a spicy meal as this will make the food even hotter for the taste buds to bear. Just enjoy your rice and use it as a neutralizer.
