Typical Philippine dishes are meaty, salty, spicy, or sweet. Most are also time-consuming to prepare, or when in a hurry it is usually fried. I'm blogging about my quest for better food, that's simple and healthy, and enjoyable as well :)

Alukon or Himbabao vegetarian dish
Would you eat this? This is actually a very tasty veggie dish - one of my favorites! Most Pinoys would eat this with fried fish, but I'd rather eat and enjoy it only with rice. The worm-like green vegetable is actually the flower spikes of the Himbabao tree. It is usually called alukon, but has different names among different provinces. It is suitable for most dishes especially good with other native vegetables. It taste like leafy greens with a certain woody taste.
