Kinalas is a noodle dish similar to the everyday mami except for a topping of what looked like a Pansit Palabok sauce, and the meaty dark soup made from boiling a cow or a pig’s head until the flesh fell off. Hence, the name kinalas. Kinalas / Luglog, just like the tagalog word “kalas”, refers to the “fall off the bone” meat that is placed on top of the noodles.The soup is the broth of beef bone and bone marrow ( sometimes skull and brain included) or what Manileños call “bulalo”. Kinalas and log-log are noodle soup dishes served bicol style. The noodles is cooked in a flavorful broth of a skinned pig’s head with a very special browny sauce. The soup is topped with very tender meat slices that also came from the pig ‘s head. This is great when served piping hot with an egg, sprinkled with roasted garlic and spring onions. You may also add kalamansi and patis to suit your taste. Kinalas is usually paired with Baduya / Banana Cue or Camote Cue.
