You really must try this last food if you visit Gorontalo. Ilabulo is a typical Pepes Gorontalo. But ilabulo doesn't use fish or chicken. Different from other pepes that you usually find, ilabulo is made from a mixture of sago mixed with gizzard liver, eggs, and herbs and spices. I don't think it's inferior to other Pepes. Ilabulo has a fairly chewy texture and a slightly spicy taste. There are two ways to serve ilabulo, namely steaming and grilling. Well, for those of you who want to try ilabulo, you can find it around Jalan Diponegoro.

Those are some Gorontalo specialties that you must try when you are on vacation Gorontalo.
