Ensaladang Kangkong

Ensaladang Kangkong
Ensaladang Kangkong. Ensaladang Talbos is one of the top seller at Kanin Club, an upscale Filipino Food Restaurant in Manila. Their version is made up of blanch kamote tops served in a bed of sliced white onion, chopped tomato and with bagoong vinegar dip. Today I would like to share a kangkong version of the dish. Instead of using kamote tops I used kangkong which is readily available even overseas.

To make the dish the leaves and stems of the kangkong has to be separated for the obvious reason that the stems will cook longer. The dish can be serve tossed with chopped tomato, onions and bagoong na isda vinegar mixture.

Ensaladang - Bagoong Vinegar Dip

But for visual presentation I served it similar on how Kanin Club serve their Ensaladang Talbos, in a restaurant setting. Here is the recipe of my Ensaladang Kangkong.


3-4 bunch kangkong, trim leaves and cut stems into 2” lengths
2 tbsp. bagoong na isda
1/4 cup vinegar
1 medium size white onion chop or cut into rings
1 medium size tomato, chopped
1-2 red chili, optional

Cooking procedure:

Fill about 1/2 full of water a medium size pot and bring to a boil, drop the kankong stems let blanch for about a minute now add in the kangkong leaves and continue to blanch for another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until color start to change. Remove the blanch vegetables from the pot and immediately drench in a bowl of cold water for about a minute, drain. In a serving platter arrange the chopped onion and tomato to serve as a bed for the blanch kangkong, place the kangkong on top of the onion and tomato and serve with the mixture bagoong na isda and vinegar with chili as a dip.

  1. This is one of my favorite dishes! Went to Coron last month and ordered this despite the mouth-watering seafood dishes. Can't live without veggies! :)
