Redditors shookt to discover that Bicol Express originated from Manila
This may come as a shock but apparently, your favorite spicy dish, Bicol Express, did not originate from Bicol.
A redditor recently posted that the dish was actually named by its creator Cely Kalaw after a passing train in Manila in the 1960s.
Shookt redditors were so shocked that they began to question whether dishes like Lechon Cebu and Vigan Longganisa actually originated from the places for which they were named.
One Bicolano on the thread even said that he grew up believing that the Bicol Express did originate from his home province. (ANGEL ONG)
