The Original Bacolod Kansi

May 17, 2009
Kansihan Ni Conee
Capitol Shopping Center, Bacolod City

Two things we wanted to find in Bacolod during our short food trip:

One is the most authentic Chicken Inasal in Bacolod which we found in Manokan Country. The second one is the kansi, an Ilonggo version of the Bulalo where the beef shank is boiled in a sour (and spicy) soup. Authentic kansi is made sour by using an indigenous fruit called batuan. We found it at Capitol Shopping Center (or locally known as Shopping) in a place aptly called Kansihan ni Conee. Their version was pretty good! My favorite part of the soup was the tenderness of the meat and of course, the abundance of the bone marrow! A lump of cholesterol-filled goodness that you wouldn't mind having a heart attack for.

We tried it at JT's Manukan but we didn't like their version. The meat was old and gamey. The soup lacked tanginess and spiciness. We had to add a few more chilis and squeeze a little bit more calamansi. It was very different from the one in Bacolod where it was perfect from cooking pot to bowl.
