Abella's Bagoong Factory
Infanta, Pangasinan, Philippines
Visiting this bagoong (fermented fish sauce) factory is almost like taking a trip to a historical site. Locals from as far as the neighboring town make the effort to visit this small, non-descript shop-cum-factory, which is run by the sprightly Nanay Francia Abella, who learned the craft from her own mother. Their products–which include boneless bagoong, patis (another kind of fish sauce), and padas bagoong (a local favorite, where the sauce is not separated from the fish)–have become a Pangasinan institution.
