WATCH: Jhong Hilario tries out Palawan’s fresh worms
It’s not as icky as you would imagine.
Actor turned Makati Councilor Virgilio “Jhong” Hilario headed to beautiful Palawan for a meeting with fellow members of the National Movement of Young Legislators.
While there, the millennial squad dared each other to try the tamilok, a local delicacy featuring freshly-harvested wood worms.
Hilario made it a vlog moment, documenting his turn to try the dish.
He treated it like pasta and rolled it on his fork, dipped in soy sauce and put it straight into his mouth.
His verdict: sarap!
