“Taste Cavite” is Island Cove’s suite of province’s delectable dishes which are rich in indigenous ingredients, history and tradition. Sharing you what’s in store for everyone on the coming days as part of my “Taste Cavite” foodie adventure.

Tahong Chips

Fried Lawlaw

We started of with Tahong Chips and Lawlaw. Tahong Chips is a dip fried, crisp mussels chips made of flour, spices and salt. One can enjoy it as is or paired with vinegar. Lawlaw on the other hand is a fried fish fillet which originally came from one of the oldest restaurant in town and served way back 1800s. It’s a perfect match for a cold beer or soda.

Mutya ng Cavite

Mutya ng Cavite for me is a palate cleanser. No it’s not sour or bitter. It is a creamy soup consisting of mussels, crabs, clams and shrimps. It is my personal favorite as well as for Mr. Gilbert Remulla, managing director of Island Cove. Mutya ng Cavite was originally served in 7 Sisters Restaurant owned by Sabater family in Marulas, Kawit, Cavite.



Calandracas is a popular soup dish that uses ham hock stock as base and has carrots, potatoes, cabbage, chickpeas, chicken, gizzard, chorizo and sotanghon then seasoned with patis Tanza. Bacalao on the other hand is like a fish sisig and uses dry-salted labahita or surgeon fish and cooked with vegetables, Spanish chorizo, garbanzo and anato oil.

Adobong Imus

Afritadang Gulay na may Baboy

Adobong Imus is also a hit which sets apart from the usual adobo that Filipinos used to have. The dish don’t have any soy sauce but cooked with vinegar, annatto oil, bay leaves, salt and pepper instead. Afritadang Gulay na may Baboy, originally from Kawit, composed of stir fried vegetables with potatoes, pechay, bell peppers and sautéed pork.

Pansit Pusit

Pancit na May Puso Ng Saging

Pancit Kawit or popularly known as Pansit Pusit did not disappoint. The dark color of the noodles come from squid ink. Topped with green mangoes, scallions and squid rings, this dish will surely tickle your tastebuds. Another surprise come from Pancit Na May Puso ng Saging which uses bihon and miki bihon cooked in atswete with small slices of pork and thinly sliced green beans, carrots and cabbage. Puso ng Saging is cooked with a lot of vinegar making it a substitute for calamansi for the pancit.


Pansit Malabon



Sapin Sapin

Other dishes that you can try are Valenciana, dish similar from Paella but uses coconut cream instead of stock, Pancit Malabon also from General Trias, Pancit Malabon, Kakanin (Kutsinta, Sapin-sapin and Puto), Kalamay Bunalejos and Tamales from Cavite City.
