Inabraw also known as Dinengdeng is a dish with Ilocano heritage and has been in the Isabeleños tables for generations. This year for the second time in a row, the Bambantin festival featured the dish through a cook off. Lead by the province’s first lady, seven contingents from different municipalities around the province cooked their way to the finals.
