PINOY kitchen


Shrimp in sour soup.

Sinigang is a Philippine dish consisting of meat or seafood and vegetables simmered in a sour broth, often with a base of rice washing (water used to rinse rice). The sour soup goes well with rice, the staple food of all Filipinos. Because of this, as well as its use of native ingredients, food writer Doreen Fernandez suggested that its origins are most likely indigenous and hence it may be considered the national dish of the Philippines.
