Tap Ko Choy....What the heck is it?

I was out grocery shopping the other day and came across an interesting looking choy (vegetable).
I've never eaten this before........let alone try to cook it.



I am imagining it to be like most choys.....but then again, it might have some sort of strong bitterness or something to it.

The choy was all bagged up and I really didn't have the gall to rip open the package. They were already giving the hairy eyeball for snapping photos.  This Tap Ko Choy looks like it grows in a clump, like lettuce.  The stalks are a similar to bak choy.


If you have had this, please share how you prepared it.  I suppose I could wok it up with a bunch of garlic, but if there is a special way of preparing this......I'd love to know.  Google wasn't much help here!

  2. Looks like it's a type of Bok Choy call Takuchoy. Here are some links.

  3. Hi RW
    Thanks for the info. I guess it's quite mild tasting if it's a relative to Bok Choy.....I'll give it a try soon and report back!
