Philippines STRANGEST food! ETAG in Sagada | Travel Philippines Vlog

17979 ratings | 2399079 views
I'm a huge fan of Filipino food. Street food in the Philippines is some of my favourite because a lot of it is so different interesting, and tasty. As a foreigner in the Philippines...Why go to a Filipino restaurant when you can get delicious Pinoy street food, and be eating Balut, Isaw, and other strange foods? Manila especially is great for this! Just a few days before getting my Kalinga Tattoo from Whang Od in Buscalan we visited an Igorot village elder to get his permission to visit his ancestors at a hanging coffin site in Sagada. He was smoking a very important type of Igorot food called Etag. Etag is used in ceremonies in this part of the Philippines, I was interested in trying it because the traditional way of preserving it, invited maggots, beatles and all other sorts of insects into the process. I'm so happy I was able to spend such quality time with Lakay Wa-Ow, try on his ceremonial necklace, and also buy his Etag. I'm excited to share the second part at Amir's Birthday Party. Stay tuned! Inspired by the Best ever food review show and their various interesting Filipino travel vlogs about foods like Catching and eating Wild Tamilok in Palawan.... Is this Philippines Strangest or Scariest Food? Where are my Filipino and Filipina subscribers at!?

Tito Zarate (2 days ago)
I haven't heard of this Filipino food "Etag" but no matter how weird it may look or sound, it simply boils down to culture. What taste good to a particular culture, may seem gross to another like fermented sharks or cheese with maggots in some European countries. But the advent of the internet and the social media is quite fascinating that it opens up our mind and broaden our perspective. It's part and parcel of a learning process that veers off away from ignorance.
Tito Zarate (2 days ago)
+Fearless & Far Thank you! for re-introducing the Filipino culture to the world :)

JIESUS (18 days ago)
Wow. The flow of the way they speak and the accent is really close to the Kadazan/Dusun people in Sabah, Malaysia. I was born and raised in Malaysia but now living in Cebu, Philippines and hearing them speak just makes me smile as this just helps open people's minds and see that these countries are more related than they initially thought. I know this should be obvious since the two countries dont sit that far apart from each other but you would not believe the hate and descrimination that are being displayed due to Illegal immigration. Awesome video, be safe on your future trips!

It makes me proud. Thank you.
