Water Spinach (tung choi)!!!!!!

I finally found out what it's called in English just now!

I f'cking love this stuff; it's my favourite vegetable. Simply sauteed with garlic, chili peppers and a bit of ginger is the best.

Any other fans of 'tung choi' here? Do you prefer the stems or leaves?

Salad makes me squirt ranch dressing. Only half of that is an analogy.

Nope, watercress is something entirely different. Here is the Tung Choi reference from Wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipomoea_aquatica

I love this stuff ... my favorite way is to sauteed it with Belacan.

We eat this a lot because it's so cheap (2 huge bags for like $0.50 at the market) but I really don't like the texture of the stems. I do like the leaves though.

I like more stems:leaves ratio; I find the leaves soak up too much of the sauce and gets too salty.

I kinda like that squeaky/crunchy texture of the stems.

Are they in season year-round? My parents only get them every so often, I never bother checking.

Is this the same as the "Tung Ho" green vegetable or whatever? The green vegetable I like the most is hands down "Oung Choy" with shrimp paste.

i love this stuff!

either with preserved salty tofu

or with shrimp paste. the stems are THE BEST when fresh, cuz they stay crunchy.

hmm... makes me think of a new thread topic...
