About Negros Occidental
Nicknamed the “Sugarbowl of the Philippines” for producing more than half the country’s produce in Sugar, Negros Occidental gives people more than the sweet taste Sugar can provide. Known across the country is their version of Chicken Inasal, and to taste the Negrense-style savory dish, Manokan Country is a host for many small eateries that offer this delight. They’re also known for their delicacies, Napoleones and Piaya.
Negros was initially known to the natives as “Buglas,” which means “cut off.” But when the Spaniards arrived in April 1565, they saw that the locals were dark-skinned and so they called the place “Negros.”
Among the people that have called this province their home are Katherine Luzuriaga, an immunologist who developed a cure for HIV infected infants, Leandro Locsin, a National Artist for Architecture, Susan Roces, the Queen of Philippine Movies, Kuh Ledesma, the Pop Diva of the Philippines, Aurora Pijuan, 1970 Miss International, and Mary Grace Baloyo, a recipient of the nation’s highest military honor, the Philippine Medal of Valor.
