An edible weed, Gil Carandang replied. He was holding a bunch of lupo that has a slightly bitter tinge to it and he suggested adding it to a pot of ginisang munggo, instead of say ampalay tendrils. Well known to those who hail from Iloilo, I had never come across this leafy green before and some of our crew said it can sometimes be found roadside, as in literally a type of weed or grass, which grows abundantly. I tried to find an English or scientific name for it but was unsuccessful. There isn’t much on the web about this ingredient either. So if you know anything more about it, I and some of the other Marketmanila readers would appreciate your input or comments… thanks!
