Bitter gourd (bitter melon) is a vegetable that looks like a cucumber with bumps. It has a bitter taste, which is common in Okinawan dishes. In Okinawa, bitter gourds are called goya. The bitterness of the gourd enhances appetite and has 5 times more vitamin c than cucumber and tomatoes! Enjoy bitter gourd with a sweet and tangy kalua pork (bbq pork), and slurp away with our refreshing Sesame Hiyashi Chuka cold ramen noodles!
