Japanese knotweed ( Polygonum cuspidatum ) is an invasive plant mostly along the waterfront. Wan likes this plant a lot because the young leaves are very tasty. The taste is a bit sour like rhubarb and it is from the same family. It is hard to describe the exact ingredients because Wan follows her intuition and there is a lot of tasting while she is cooking. So try it out yourself, use your intuition en find the balance between, sweet, salt and sour. This red curry is a fresh taste sensation!
