Have You Tried Quezon's Version Of Meatloaf?
It is served during parties and handaans.
Hardinera is a dish you can find in¬†Quezon and it's their take on the meatloaf, loaded with a lot of ingredients. This special meatloaf takes a lot of effort to prepare: it is made with sliced pork, pineapples, tomato sauce, tomato paste, raisins, pickles, grated cheese, hard-boiled eggs, and more. All the ingredients are cooked then melded together with beaten egg and placed in a llanera before it is steamed for another round of cooking.¬†
The flavors are similar to menudo but it may be likened to the embutido, but made extra chunky with all the different ingredients. It is definitely a delicious dish you wouldn't want to miss out on while you're in the province.¬†
