Food of the Day: Ngohiong

2 Feb


Among the favorite dishes that Cebuanos come home to is Ngohiong. Ngohiong is Cebu’s version of vegetable lumpia or spring rolls. It’s main filling is usually ubod or heart of palm flavoured with ngohiong powder also know as chinese five spice. Other variations would use singkamas, bamboo shoots, meat, or other vegetables. Ngohiong is delicious, crispy and very cheap. Ngohiong is dipped in a special hot sauce and it is usually eat with hanging rice or poso. There are many restaurants in Cebu that offers ngohiong and each local has his/her own favourite.

Author’s Comment: I recently visited one of Cebu’s best ngohiong place, details at KALAMI CEBU.
