This is coming very late but “it’s better late than never” for this post to come out here. I was so preoccupied with other pressing jobs during the election period. Though, i was present during the big night when the Big Winner title was announced. Anyway, i wish to relay here that our Big Winner for the KNN Season 4 is Mr. Roque Brillo and his Kapamilya Palabok House.

This decent-looking man relied in the past his friends and the people around him for orders of his sumptuous palabok. More about Mr. Roque Brillo in this article.
