Karel kick starts her day with Papaitan from the North
When she’s on the road for a tour, Karel Marquez-Farinas loves to power up her day with local and regional dishes to get the feel of the place.
During a recent trip to the north, the talented actress, singer and chef loaded up on a big breakfast complemented by local delicacy papaitan, which is local Ilocano soup made of goa and beef innards.
The meal also featured dinuguan, liempo and bistek.
Of course, at the center of all the dishes is rice to make the meal even more filling.
Breakfast of champs indeed, Mrs. Farinas! (ANGEL ONG)
