Paklay is a popular dish from Mindanao and Visayas It is a made up of stewed pork or beef innards. There are countless versions which are dependant of locality and ingredients used from the soupy to an almost dry concoction. It is sometimes associated with the papaitan of the Ilocanos. Especially when beef innards is used. Paklay is popular as an accompaniment food on social drinking. I have tasted several version of paklay from some of my Visaya friends, and being a papaitan lover I also fell in love with it.
