For the sake of all those who commented on my post early on about Bicol Express, i have attached herewith the picture of it with mango slices. I tell you it's so delicious. But honestly, pineapple chunks is so much tastier when added to a Bicol Express.

It looks so good! It looks like the pork chunks have been grilled (or fried?). I think if it was crunchy, then it would go well with the sauce (however spicy it is). And I bet the mango slices are a good compliment to the taste. My mouth is just watering right now.

Actually the pork was fried until the skin is so crispy. It's called lechon kawali. The ripe mango slices added a new taste to the salty & spicy dish, because it is sweet. So delicious! Makes me hungry at this time again.

Mangos in Philippines tastes great, 2 years ago Ann had sent mango slices marketed by some reputed company, all in my family liked it; i told her to send more; she did along with some tea packets; but unfortunately all were seized by customs dept. Tell me what is Bicol Express, wish you can send me some.

So missed this dish, how I wish I could taste them once again. Where did you buy this? Is it available in Manila?

This was one of the dish we ordered when my high school batchmates and i had dinner in Daraga, Albay. They do have that also in Manila, specially in those that cooks local foods.
