Balaw Balaw, which is well renowned for providing unique foods, also houses the works of the Vocalan Family. Mr. Perdigon and Mrs. Luzvimin Vocalan opened Balaw Balaw in October 1982 with the intention of showcasing Filipino culture and tradition in Angono. A restaurant and an art gallery were the perfect method for Mr. Perdigon to merge his two passions since he comes from a family of cooks.
