19 Mar Muslim Cuisine: Authentic Pater Places in Cagayan de Oro
Pater is a traditional food that originated from our Muslim brothers in Mindanao. It is basically rice topped with shredded meat, either chicken, beef, or fish flakes, and then wrapped in banana leaf.
It may be cheap but is already a complete meal which is usually paired with palapa. Palapa is a Filipino condiment consisting of pounded ginger, turmeric, chili, thinly chopped scallions or sakurab, and grated coconut.
