There is Ciento Quinse, an Chavacano dish that combines seafood with liempo in a long-forgotten tradition. Pancit Langlang of Imus, Cavite, which was first made popular in El Filibusterismo by Dr. Jose Rizal, is made with sotanghon noodles, chicken meat and eggs, quail eggs, shrimps, and vegetables.
