Pata ala Lauya

The mention of Lauya brings back the food memories of yesteryears. It was a typical fiesta scene in a barrio that I got to taste this cholesteroliffic and delicious pork dish. I can still vividly remember that decades old gastronomic memory - very tender and almost fall of the bone pata, vivid orange sour and sticky broth, large chunks of unripe langka; all in one big large kaldero! And it's been really a while since I've tried to recreate that taste memory and a few days ago, it was worth another try.
