Passion Fruit | Things to do in Taysan-Batangas
|Address:||Poblacion East, Taysan, Batangas|
Ginger has many health benefits. It is usually consumed in tea form or as a fragrant spice to amp up dishes. People usually take salabat (or ginger tea) to soothe their inflamed throats. It is also widely believed that it can make one's singing voice be better. Since not a lot of people have the time to prepare it, Taysan came up with the Instant Salabat.
Being Batangas’s Rice Granary, Rosario has come to be known for some of its rice-based delicacies--the most celebrated of which is the Sinukmani. This is made of malagkit rice, coconut milk and brown sugar, much like the biko in appearance but with a variation. The sinukmani is topped with caramelized latik for added flavor. This is a special delicacy prepared only for special occasions because cooking it requires a lot of muscle. It is best eaten as a snack,served on a piece of banana leaf with a strong cup of kapeng barako on the side. It is a favorite particularly during weddings not only because of its taste but also because of what it signifies: sticky for unity and a strong, binding relationship, sweet for sweetness in a relationship, and lastly, cooking it requires muscle – just as a relationship requires much effort in order to make it work.
Tombol Hill is the site of the Jesus Christ grotto that can rival that of Rio de Janeiro's. It's known as the "Hagdan Tungo Kay Hesus" (Stairway to Jesus) and involves climbing 300 steps to get to the top, where a bird's eye view of Rosario awaits. Christian devotees hold pilgrimages in the area during the Holy Week as part of their sacrifice. At the foot lies Rosario's municipal hall, along with other institutions that flank the southern and western parts of Tombol Hill.
