  Calbiga Gabi (Taro)
by limledi

Calbiga is located almost 50 km south of Catbalogan. Aside from its natural attractions like Calbiga Cave (locally known as Langun-Gobingob). Said to be 27 km long, it is the biggest cave in Asia. Also worth seeing are the Literon Rapids and the Lulugayan Falls. Calbiga is also well-known for its crop called taro (gabi). You can eat them boiled. Really tasty. We always ask someone who happens to pass by Calbiga to buy it for us. Price is P70 per kilo. Remember to haggle coz they quote at a higher price initially.

What to buy: Calbiga Gabi (Taro).

What to pay: P70 per kilo.

Address: Calbiga, Samar
Directions: Several stalls lining along the National Highway to Calbiga. You can't miss them.
