Yummy Sunday: “Buyo”

Share Button

This s probably the weirdest post I will ever make for any food meme.  I can’t blame you if you won’t say “Yummy! ” or “I’m drooling!” on your comments.  Haha!

Here’s one Thai food that we discovered just today.

First of all you are going to need these leaves. I  guess they call this leaf “buyo”

Diced onions, ginger, lime, desiccated  coconut, dried little shrimps, chili

and peanuts.

This sweet sauce made out of … I don’t know what! LOL! :)
You roll the leaf into a cone.
Put all the ingredients inside the cone-shaped leaf.  Close your eyes, open your mouth.  CHEW.
The spices, the mint flavor from the leaf, the sweet taste from the sauce, the crunchy desiccated coconut and peanuts, the saltiness that the shrimps bring, the sour and pungent taste from the lime– all these melt into your mouth.

This is actually bite size.  You get it all in your mouth and you decide if you liked it or not.  I actually did!  And yes, I have to say (although my mind is resisting)– THAT IT WAS ONE YUMMY TREAT!

    That is an interesting food to say the least. Though the ingredients made it seem flavorful, I’m not sure how I’m going to deal with eating a leaf like that. Hindi ba siya lasang dahon? You know like the smell and taste of kangkong when it’s not yet cooked?

    eating raw ginger and onion is not new to me so its not “fear factor” but that sauce and the leaf make me interested to try
