It's a rare delicacy, one for the book of Guinness. Cow or carabao hide made into pulotan called caliente, a favorite of Ilocanos. It is softened to almost gel-like consistency, heavily spiced with onion, ginger, green hot pepper, and seasoned with sukang Iloko (natural vinegar from sugarcane.)
Come to the Ilocos region. Stop at Vigan on your tour. You won't miss caliente, so with bagnet (lechon kawali), empanada, and the signature bibingka and tinubong. And lastly, the pride of the Ilocos region, Basi table wine.
