πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ό Constitution Day (Palau) πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ό

Today is Constitutiona Day in the Republic of Palau (Beluu er a Belau in Palauan), an archipelago nation to the east of the Philippines in Micronesia.                                             It marks the day in 1981 when Palau adopted its constitution (the first ever to ban nuclear weapons).

Palau had settlers from the Philippines early in its history, and this shows in the cuisine of Palau:


Here I have two of the Palauan national dishes: adobo and sinigang.

Specifically adobo chicken (chicken cooked in a vinegar marinade) and sinigang tuna (a slightly sour soup) with fried rice noodles.

Then to finish off the meal, some banana caramel lumpia (lumpia is another national dish), also known as Turon (a spring roll filled with banana and jackfruit and soaked in caramel syrup)
