Chopseuy is a Philippine dish that has different varieties of vegetables in it. The dish originated from Chinese, it was originally composed of vegetables, meat, shrimps with a thick sauce that has a hint of sweetness and saltness cooked in a hot wok, it has bean sprouts, cabbage and celery and is bound by thick sauce. But the Filipinos had made a different version that makes the dish distinctly Filipino. We added different kind of vegetable that makes the dish more healthy and delicious.
