If there is a Romeo and Juliet in the culinary world then this Filipino side dish is the Juliet to grilled meats like Inihaw na Baboy, Inihaw na Isda or Pinoy Barbecue. A humble dish made with grilled eggplants, tomatoes and onions dressed with vinegar, chillies and a fermented fish sauce called bagoong monamon.

Most grilled dishes back home are accompanied but salads like this, most specially this one as the eggplants is grilled the same time as the meats are cooked, making the preparation quite easy. The tangy taste also pairs well with oily meats and like most grilled dishes and ensalada back home it is best enjoyed over banana leaf and kamayan style.
