Crispy Ukoy by Quan
TRY PINOY DELICACY: QUAN’S UKOY
I love Ukoy. It’s one Pinoy
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.
