This has got to be the most unique and most delicious binagoongan I’ve tried. They call this Binagoongang Verde. Verde is Spanish for green, and there’s a bright green (almost yellow) sauce on top of this dish making it extra special.
Rekado ATBP’s version awakened my palate’s sleeping passion for binagoongan. Theirs has crispy pork sauteed in shrimp paste (bagoong) topped with green mango puree. Yes! It’s the green mango puree that elevated my standards for binagoongan.
Many Filipinos enjoy eating green mangoes with bagoong. So why not have that in your binagoongan? Makes perfect sense.
The sour taste from the green mango puree complements the salty binagoongan. It has a refreshing feel to it. This dish is perfect with rice.
Congratulations Rekado ATBP for creating this masterpiece.
Rekado means ingredient in Filipino, and ATBP is short for “at iba pa” which is “and others” or “among others” in English. It’s a two-story air-conditioned restaurant that can seat at least 30 persons in Columns Tower 2, Makati. Most of their guests are residents of Columns and people working in buildings nearby who walk to their restaurant for lunch and dinner.
Marlowe Mendoza, its owner, said they use recipes from Cavite Province and innovate them to serve Filipino dishes fit for the modern Pinoy.
