The Famous Food Bilao in Davao City

The Famous Bilao

bilao has traditionally been used as a rice winnower, but is now also frequently used for holding food and even for serving food, giving a stylistic “native” accent to presentation.

Rice can either be plain or garlic rice or mixed with small salted dried fish. Toppings would be grilled pork chops, barbecued chicken, deep-fried tilapia and grilled squid. A cup of soy sauce with kalamansi (native lemon) and chopped onions would serve as the sawsawan (dip) for the meat. A Kinilaw or fresh fish salad serves as appetizer. A vegetable salad of diced singkamas (turnip, jicama, water chestnut), okra (lady finger) and cucumber topped with alamang (anchovies) completes the bilao.

These are The Famous Bilao in Davao City:

Davao is known for really good restaurants that serve grilled seafood that’s why it’s difficult to choose just one unless it offers something unique.

Our artifact is a winnowing tray, bilao in Tagalog, from the Abra Province in the northern region of Luzon, in the Philippines. It is a woven fan-shaped basket used for drying grains of rice and sifting them, particularly performed by women.
