Revisiting The Good Old Okoy

Okoy (also spelled as ukoy) is a Filipino appetizer that is simple and easy to make. It requires only a few ingredients, which you could find at your local supermarket. Some of these ingredients include shrimp, cornstarch, and peppercorn.

To everybody who has been asking about Jeng’s Shokoy, here’s the pretty face behind the super yummy and crispy okoy. 😍

The batter made is then deep-fried in a pan until crispy. It is usually served with vinegar as the dipping sauce. This dish is perfect to eat on its own or with rice! (1)

Okoy is believed to have originated from Laguna. Nonetheless, it’s pretty popular in all the regions and it comes in so many varieties. Okoy could be thin and crispy, while some could be thick and filling. In whatever form it comes, it just tastes so good especially when dipped in vinegar.

The usual okoy doesn’t usually come in flavors. It’s just deep-fried. Then it’s dipped in vinegar for that extra kick .

If you want to have some thin and crispy okoy, then you have to try Jeng’s Shrimp Shokoy. This is the only okoy that’s sisig flavored. You can dip it in vinegar but it tastes great without it as well. ❤️

  1. The wasabi flavor is so good! 🙂 Now if you don’t believe me, it’s okay. 🙂 But you gotta take it from the Lechon Diva. If she loves it, then it must really be good!
