Bulalo is one such favorite soup and the hotter it is the better. It is best complemented by the marrow that is tapped out of the bone. This delightful beef soup is a specialty of the cattle-raising region in the province of Batangas. And now, restaurants in Laguna especially in Calamba is becoming a favorite place to go to when we crave for Bulalo.

  • 3 stalks leeks, sliced
  • 1 package dried banana blossoms
