Diwal Shell: Like a Tongue Sticking Out

Diwal shell, commonly found in Negros Occidental, are so-called because of its peculiar characteristic. Diwal (dee-WAHL) is an Ilonggo term for "tongue sticking out", and this shellfish tends do stick out of its shell, looking like a tongue sticking out.

In this particular bowl, however, the diwal shells are kind of shy and did not want to be seen in their usual form.

A delicious main ingredient in soups, such is the demand for the diwal shell.
