Imbao con Mantequilla y Ajos
Imbao is a highly-prized mollusk that can be found in mangroves. It takes a master imbao collector who can spot the exact location in mud through its “mata,” the opening in the substrate. Everything is manually excavated and collected by hand, a technique that safeguards mangroves from damage caused by digging.
From the hands of masters and the rich coastal areas of the Zamboanga Peninsula, enjoy this succulent clam baked with garlic and cheese. With every bite, taste the flavors of the sea, freshly bursting in your mouth!
Say a prayer of gratitude to the imbao collectors, cooks, and attendants who delivered the precious coastal cuisine to indulge in.
