I’ve been craving libas for months! That mouthwatering fusion of sour libas leaves with coconut milk and loads of siling labuyo. So delish!
I know what you’re thinking – especially you, Daddy. Normal cravings lang ‘to, hindi ako naglilihi. No new apo coz I’m not pregnant. Bleh!
It’s just, we’ve been here in Samar for a while now and I really miss home. Don’t get me wrong, I’m having a feast with all the fresh salt-water produce. But, a Bicolana just needs to have her gulay with gata – plus plenty of sili!
I saw Natúk’s Libas sa Gata online and it made me curious. After a few taps, I found out that the makers are from my hometown. Only means that these guys know what they’re doing.
Excited ako! I ordered on Lazada. A 200g glass jar costs P165.
How was it, you ask?
It’s exactly what I was hoping for. My craving was indeed satisfied. It starts with a delightful sour taste followed by a creamy leafy flavor. It then leaves you with a subtle spicy pinch. Surrraaapp!
Tastes like home!
Fair warning, though. If you’re trying to lose weight or on a diet, this is not for you! Because I am certain na mapaparami ang kain mo, mumshie.
You can enjoy it as a main dish with a cup of rice – or three! Hahaha! It’s also great as a side to other viands like fried fish. Below are photos of how I enjoyed my jar of happiness:

As filling (palaman):
Use your imagination! However way you choose to enjoy your libas sa gata, I just wish you’d feel the same way as I did.
