Our original plan is to go to a resort but for some instances, it did not pushed through thus we went to Panagatan.
I already tried, eggplant salad (ensaladang talong) and the Lato Salad and I wanted something else. Well, what I had in mind is not actualy new to my taste, I just miss it. The first and last time i had that was last February 2009 in Cebu's sutukil. So i suggested this salad. When it was served, I was surprised that its not the one im looking for. I really cant recall its name and I'm still thinking about it while eating.
"oh no!!" I exclaimed to myself. "its Lukot, not Guso". In Filipino Language, "Gusot" and "Lukot" are synonymous for the english word "wrinkled". My memory got mixed up, I thought - when I was suggesting- "guso" and "lukot" are the same.
Looking into the brighter side, Its my first time to eat Guso.
Trivia: Lukot is not a seaweed but a Sea slugs' excretions. It look like a seaweed since its green and looks like a green ball of thread. Guso (Eucheuma) and Lato (Caulerpa Lentillifera) are two of the most common edible seaweed in the market.
