You might be wondering what in the world is this?!
It looks unpleasing to the eye,
But if you're familiar with Chinese cuisine then i'm sure you've seen
it already. ^0^
It's preserved "Szechuan" Vegetable, derived from a province in China with
the same name.

Szechuan is mostly stir fried with thin pork strips that has a tinge of spicy,
oily and especially peppery taste all at once!

and where in Manila can you see this?...
at a public market here in downtown where most of the Chinese locals would buy
their ingredients...


You'll see them outside their stall, well preserved in a large jar like this.
Now, the tastes may vary depending on how the vendor adds its mixture and spices,
so it's best to buy them from someone you're familiar with.
