Many People would think the Buriring is the same as Butete which are both from the same Family of Puffer Fish. However, long ago in Cadiz the Boriring has been known to be a staple food considering the abundance of Santol Trees in Cadiz at that time. Yes, if not cleaned well, boriring is dangerous and will continue to be, but the specialized cooking procedure in Cadiz made this fish a staple of safe and delicious delicacy.
This Month, the Cadiz City Tourism Office led by Mrs. Juanily Pedrosa organized the Boriring Festival together with the rest of the 2nd District namely Manapla and Sagay. It was also covered by the regional news agency like ABS-CBN and GMA where it was featured last night at Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. Some local foodies and bloggers also covered the said event for different types of cooking for this rare and exotic food.
It might look like small mices at first, but then once you have a taste of it, it will whet your appetite. The same way you thought of BALUT before, the looks won’t do justice to the taste. So come visit Cadiz and Try the Boriring as it is currently it’s Boriring Season!!!
