“They’re called ‘worms’ because they’re slimy and look like them, but they’re not really worms (trust me!). They taste like oysters and you can buy them in Puerto Princesa, where locals sell them. People usually marinate them with calamansi, vinegar, chili (labuyo), and chopped onions. You can get it at lots of restaurants in Puerto Princesa, but the most famous place is Kinabuchs Grill and Bar on Rizal Avenue.

You can ask to have it marinated with lime or soy sauce and extra spices or herbs. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even have it cooked like Bicol Express, especially if you like spicy food!
