First this Ilonggo dish is topped with crispy pork called “tulapho” then it is also seasoned with “guinamos” which is similar to terasi” of Indonesia or belachan” or Malaysia and tastes like bagoong alamang. It is a very flavourful dish; the smell and taste of that fermented shrimp paste in a delicate vegetable like kangkong and the crispy texture of the fried pork is a really good pair with a freshly cooked jasmine rice.
