    “Baluko” sounds a strange word to non- Bicolanos you should have posted the picture of the shellfish. I thought it is a freshwater fish the first time I read a recipe of “Deep Fried Baluko ” posted by a restaurant in Legazpi City, they posted the picture of the shellfish. It looks like ” Razor Clams ” I am not sure if ” Baluko ” and Razor Clams are the same specie. I’m sure the Bicol version of the chowder with “Baluko ” is super-tastier than the ordinary chowder served in all the local restaurants everywhere. Especially if it is a little spice- up with ” Maarang na lada. ” Now, that really makes me hungry for a bowl of chowder.
