A part of my to eat-again food list while being Cebu is its local Ngo-hiong. To those who are unfamiliar with this, I will give a slight description of what this is. Ngo-hiong looks similarly to the usual fried lumpiang gulay, except that its wrapper is crispier than that of an ordinary lumpia and I think it is breaded and coated with a special ingredient that makes the first bite unique. Then it is stuffed with some ground pork and some vegetables which I am honestly unfamiliar with but I thinks there's ubod (a vegetable which is locally described as the heart of bananas).

 

Okay, if you want to taste some of Cebu's best Ngo-hiong, I can suggest a place to go. A small canteen called Chinese Ngo-hiong is one of the popular destination of those who wants to try this or to those who simply wants to satisfy a hungry stomach for an affordable price. The place may be small, it is not air-conditioned but I assure that the experience is worth it.

Paul took me here after I told him that I want to eat Ngo-hiong again since I don't get to experience this even just once in Manila. So before we shopped for pasalubongs, we ate lunch there.

Aside from their famous Ngo-hiong, they also offers other fried specialties which are all Cebuano's favorites. Included in the food choices are fried bola-bola, stuffed eggs, BBQs, fried chicken and pork chops.

The meal is incomplete without its "sawsawan" or dipping. Here in Chinese Ngo-hiong, the famous dip is soysauce and their house-specialty mix of spices.

 

And ofcourse, Cebu's local hanging rice which is locally called "pusoh" isn't absent in the scene.

 

This food will never be deleted in my food list on the next time I'll visit Cebu. Afforrdable, delicious and satisfying.

Ngohiong! Ngohiong!

chopstickNgohiong! Ngohiong! chopstick

I always chant at the office. I always have a craving for this fried delicacy since I got the chance to eat there again last year. Ngohiong is a spring roll made of ubod, singkamas, and ground pork. lol lol lol

The Original Chinese Ngohiong near USC Main still maintained the ngohiong that I loved when I was still in college. It still has the same addictive taste, prompting you to go back every lunch time. I like it hot, so I have loads of chili sauce and toyo with it, and of course, finger food will never be complete without the puso (hanging rice).

The price only increased to P7 from P5 a decade ago. Still so cheap! They have had a lot of improvements, and I’m so glad they did. The place is bigger and cleaner, a better lavatory and water station and there are additions in the menu like longganisa, lumpia shanghai, bolabola, and all those unhealthy fried stuff. hehe mad

I still saw the female owner there cashiering and taking orders. I just remembered one of my colleagues from Manila on her recent visit got a taste of it and wanted more. Maybe on your next trip to Cebu girl! tongue

Ngohiong! Ngohiong! Lunch break, who’s coming with me? bowl bowl bowl

Lamiang Chinese Ngohiong sa Sugbo
Smile 2010-04-26
chopstickIn Cebu, there is this spring roll that is uniquely a Cebuano signature dish. It is called Ngohiong. it is made of ubod (pith), singkamas (jicama), ground pork some with srimp, and seasoned with ngohiong powder. One of the best that I tasted is the creation of Chinese Nhohiong. They have been making Ngohiong since 1960’s. The sauce is a super spicy thick hot sauce and is best to combined with soy. The more you take a bite, the more you want to eat. It is that delicious. It is best with puso’ (hanging rice).

Ngohiong or ngo yong is a Cebu’s Chinese fried vegetable lumpia made up of ubod, palm hearth flavored with Chinese five-spice powder called Ngohiong. The name ngohiong was probably from the Chinese Ngohiong restaurants who are serving this famous ngohiong flavored fried lumpia. The lumpia rolls are dipped in cornstarch batter before frying for that extra crispiness besides sealing in all those flavors that results a very crispy lumpia but with succulent filling. Cebu Ngohiong is a chinese lumpia famous in cebu, a chinese dish, it contains chinese seasonings, meat, etc. Cebu Ngohiong is almost a Cebuano delicacy; one can even mistook it as a Cebuano dish although the origins of which are Chinese. Try cebu ngohiong, a lumpia like viand with meat and veggies topped with spicy sauce.

I first tried it when I was first year college at USC, for a long time already I can attest that their ngohiong is one of the best to be proud. Chinese Ngohiong is located at 354 Jungquera st., Cebu City. You may also contact them at 032-2554568. Be there before or after lunch time because this humble place if full of people trying to have a taste of this very delectable ngohiong. A truly Cebuano dish that you will appreciate dearly. Very affordable, delicious and steamingly spicy. Never miss this when you visit Cebu. Definitely, I will have this again and again.
