The wood oven and the stones for tupig

The wood oven and the stones for tupig

The tupig also gets its distinct flavor and aroma from the wood and the stones. The store helpers are so good at arranging the tupig and turning them over. They do not even wear gloves! The newly wrapped tupig stay near the oven opening while the others are at the farther end. This way there is no confusion as to which was placed first. You have to try it to believe us this is the best tupig. Ever. Meters before and after the stores you could smell the cooking tupig. We passed by the place at 10PM last January 10 2014 and the area was just aromatically delicious. Thanks to the transfer of skills and the demand, the original single store has now become four stores of different secret ingredients.
Since Typhoon Vinta ravaged northern Cagayan and most of the banana plants were destroyed, they told us they get their banana leaves wrappers from Apayao.
