Takway vegetable of Capiz

“Poor man’s asparagus” is what people of Capiz call the takway vegetable. It is a cheap, simple, but difficult-to-prepare dish as it takes hours to remove the outer skin of each of the very slim tendrils.

Takway is boiled and seasoned with vinegar and salt.

Homesick Capiceños surfeited with Manila’s rich foods always dream of going home for a dish of takway.
