TRY PINOY DELICACY: QUAN’S  UKOY

I love Ukoy. It’s one Pinoy  delicacy which can be eaten  as a snack or  as an appetizer.

Ukoy or Fritters has many versions. There’s the cassava version with the cassava, of course, being the main base/ingredient, others are using squash, sweet potatoes, mongo sprout, carrots, papaya and other veggies. All the ingredients of this dish,   are mixed into a batter and then deep fried — resulting in a fairly crunchy patty.

L-R: Sinamak and Crispy Ukoy

But there’s one version of Ukoy that I really like most- the Quan’s Ukoy. Quan’s  version  Ukoy is a lot crispier as compared to other versions. It’s thin and while you cannot visibly see the shrimp in the ukoy, its flavor is perfectly tasted in every bite. Ukoy is best eaten when dipped with vinegar and garlic. But being an Ilonggo, I love to eat the ukoy with sinamak. Sinamak is the Visayan’s  version of spiced vinegar. This condiment derives its appeal and zest from several spices that were combined and soaked in vinegar.

Quan’s Delicacy, the only food establishment in Bacolod City which specializes in Kakanin and Native Delicacies features  Ukoy as their delicacy  for the month of October. Each month Quan features one Pinoy Delicacy which don’t normally offer daily.

  1. Haven’t been to Bacolod City yet, much more tried eating ukoy, but I’m definitely willing to try one.

  2. Ukoy is a favorite of the family except me.. Masarap naman bakit hindi ko ma type-pan?

  3. Oh my gulay! I miss Ukoy! I think in our place they call it Ocoy. Anyway, I never really liked it as a kid because I know there was seafood in it. LOL. But I love it’s crunchiness, plus it’s better if the sauce is good and spicy!

  4. Looks delicious, can I have some? Haha. Makes me hungry as I write this.

  5. I missed eating Filipino snacks. I wish I live closer where Asian store is but unfortunately it is in the city. It is quite a long drive for me.

  6. Mama used to make that for us. MIss ko yanm sobra!

  7. Wow! This sounds delicious and healthy too. The spiced vinegar would be a great dipping sauce. I will try to make the variant with shrimps. We love seafood in our home.

  8. This is awesome with rice but even better as an afternoon snack. Hehe. I can probably finish about 5-6 pieces of this!
