Laing (in Manila) or most preferably known as Pinangat in the whole Bicol region is one of the most famous dishes that all locals and tourists alike wanted to try. The origin of this famous Bicol dish came from the Municipality of Camalig, where it was first introduced to the public. Because of this, many locals from Camalig challenged themselves to cook this dish for them to try it to the Bicolanos and the tourists when they visit the Bicol region.
Every June, Camalig held the “Pinangat Festival”, where the people share the food with everyone, especially the Pinangat. The Pinangat Festival lasted for half a month of June.
