Make sure the flesh from the pork or cow’s head goes in there, too. Top this already delicious meal with fried garlic, chopped scallions, sili and for added flavor, the brain for the boiled animal’s head. When you have all these, KINALAS is all set to be enjoyed.

This popular noodle dish from Naga City is not your typical mami. Aside from the broth, an orange/brown sauce much like the one used in Pancit Palabok is also added. Kinalas got its name from the word “kalas” or to fall off, which is what happens in the lengthy process of cooking this delicious soup dish.

Make sure to enjoy KINALAS with A LOT of sili for the authentic Bicolano experience.

Kinalas is usually served at local carinderias and turo-turo’s around Naga City.
