kangkung belacan

As far as my taste bud memories can go, I had probably the best fried Kangkung in Bangkok. The food stall was opened only at night, and they were busy until the wee hours of the morning. How lucky I was to be able to observe them, from our hotel room just on the opposite side.

Kangkung, which is also known as the water spinach, or water convolvulus is a stemmy water plant (just as the name implies). The stems are hollow, and in the end, it has sharp-pointed leaves. In Asia, this is probably the cheapest vegetable available in the markets. In Europe, this is sparse and if they do fly them in, it costs like gold.
