Repolyo is the Filipino word for "Cabbage". It is from the Spanish word "Repollo" which also refers to Cabbage. The most common Repolyo or Cabbage in the Philippines is very light green to whitish in color called scientifically as Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata L. In the Philippines, there used to be 2 kinds of Repolyo, the Puting Repolyo (white/very light green cabbage) and the Pulang Repolyo (red cabbage ). When I was young, my mother can still buy Red Cabbage in the wet markets and make it as salad, but nowadays only White cabbage are sold in most markets I visited. In the Philippines, Repolyo (cabbage) is mostly added to boiled dishes. A modern way to eat raw Repolyo (Cabbage) began with the arrival of KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken's Coleslaw. The most iconic Filipino dish containing Repolyo (cabbage is Nilagang Baka (boiled beef stew), Bulalo (boiled cow's bone), Ginisang Repolyo (sauteed cabbage). It is also one of the ingredients of Pancit (Philippines noodles) and Lumpiang Sariwa (fresh vegetable rolls) Personal Note: My mom used to make it as a delicious salad, she shred the Repolyo into tiny pieces, boil until a bit tender, then mix it with slices of tomatoes and a bit salt. Hmm, come to think of it, there are a lot of Repolyo in Germany, I might as well start making this Repolyo salad.
