Having been under the colony of Spain followed by America, this celebratory dish (Hardinera) may be a hybrid of embotido and meatloaf. It is served in oval-shaped llanera with colorful toppings of hotdogs, carrots, and bell pepper to resemble a garden. Hence, the name.
Traditionally enjoyed during fiestas and special occasions, local restaurants are now serving this all year-round.
Make sure to include this in your Quezon’s food bucket list.
