Savoring the Details and Presentation of Pinangat/ Laing

Quan’s Pinangat stands out for its meticulous attention to detail. Unlike some versions with mushy leaves, Quan keeps them intact, adding a delightful texture to the dish. The presentation further elevates the experience, served in charming miniature “Kawali” and small “caldero” cookware that enhances both the visual appeal and the taste. The nostalgia evoked by the small cookware adds to the experience, reminding you of cherished memories. It’s more than just a meal; it’s a visual masterpiece that sets the stage for a memorable dining experience.
