We’ll just go right out and say it: Manam never gets it wrong. Everything on their menu is a creative, flavorful re-imagination of Filipino cuisine; down to their simplest dishes. Take for example their Ensaladang Namnam, an uber simple dish that’s packed with a medley of contrasting flavors. It’s basically everyone’s favorite mangga’t bagoong on crack; with tomatoes, onions, tinapa flakes, pomelo, and more—and that’s why we love it.
We love it so much, in fact, that we re-created it. This recipe only takes about 15 minutes to make; and uses ingredients you probably already have at home. It has everything—brightness and crunch from the vegetables, freshness from the pomelo, and savoriness from the bagoong. Oh, and for those wondering, this recipe is a good small to medium Manam size in serving.
