The Crispiest Duck in the Philippines (Angono Itik Rizal)

Who is the “Itik Queen” of Angono, Rizal? Apolonia Morales has been cooking her signature fried duck or “itik” for more than half a century. Her now 51-year-old recipe was an unexpected hit back in the day and was a result of a typhoon that hit the region wherein there was a shortage of her usual fish supply.

At 86 years old, “Ti Apolonia” is now a living legend amongst the locals and has now established a small store called “Plonia’s Fried Itik.” What is the buzz around this crispy fried duck? Watch until the end to find out!

This Piñakamasarap video was made with love using our favorite ingredients from Marca Piña. Did you know that their iconic soy sauce and other products are now available in over 40 countries? Marca Piña has been around since the 1940’s and is a staple in every Filipino household. Try making this fried itik recipe today!
