Dinuguan or Pork Blood Stew is a Filipino, savory stew of blood and meat simmered in a rich, spicy gravy of pig blood.

On our way to Jariel’s Peak, we stumbled upon Rosary Hills Sanctuary. It’s a place for spirituality and enlightenment.

They are open and they have a restaurant. The place is very new from the looks of it.

We met Mr. Danny, the owner and told us about why he got the idea on setting up the place.

(Mr. Danny on the right)
He was telling a story about the NAZARENO who visited their place when he was still young. It’s like building this place is a calling for him.
All around the vicinity are giant stone statues of Pope John Paul II , Stations of the Cross, Jesus Christ on Mount Calvary, bible characters like Moses, Rameses, Nefertiti, Mother Mary, etc.

At the resto, we ordered the wild pig BULALO bone soup. I enjoyed that bulalo with its half-cooked cabbage. It was tender and delicious. You can see the tendons, muscle fibers and ligaments not found in your average pig meat.

Mr. Danny told me the meat is tender because it was boiling in a pot for a very long time. At least 8 hours or more.
But then Mr. Danny wanted us to sample the DINUGUAN (Pork Blood Stew) version of this wild pig.

It was sooo delicious. It is not very sour even though there is a vinegar component. Attributed to the tenderness and the gamy taste and mostly, the cook, which I imagined would be Mr. Danny, this DINUGUAN is the best.

A jeep-load of visitors arrived that Mr. Danny is expecting. No wonder he prepared some good food at the resto.

We waved goodbye and hoping to come back real soon.
