Its sourness is often associated with tamarind, but surely, other fruits and leaves can also be used as a souring agent such as kamias and calamnsi. Indeed, Sinigang is a favorite of many as it also goes well with steamed white rice. Besides that, this dish is actually great for sharing too! Its soup can already be a viand, if you know what we mean. Every sip of it bring so much warmth and comfort, especially on cold rainy nights or when you are missing home.

Let’s start with the most common one, the Pork Sinigang. Pork is a protein very much accessible here in the Metro so Pork Sinigang is actually a go-to of ours. Another one is Beef Sinigang; this one we usually go for when we want something extra than pork. We feel like Beef Sinigang just has that extra special element to it and so we go for this when we feel like we need some extra pampering.

Aside from those meats, you can also cook Sinigang with some fresh catches from the sea. Sinigang na Hipon is actually a favorite of ours as this one uses succulent shrimps as its main ingredient and you guys know how much we love shrimp, right? Meanwhile, Sinigang na Lapu-Lapu is certainly a Sinigang version that is usually served on a special day since grouper fish is not that accessible here in the Metro, plus is actually a bit pricey for an everyday dish.
