Ensalada is one of the delicious appetizers or side dishes to try here in the City of Smiles. One should have a taste of this dish before leaving the city. Ensalada is suitable for vegans as it has blanched and chopped banana heart, shallots, tomatoes, and chilies blended together with calamansi (calamondin) juice and coconut milk. It is appetizing because of its various colors and great aroma. Ensalada can be found in different local restaurants in Bacolod City.
