Seafood sinigang – Philippines dish

seafood sinigang

I found a food stall called Little Philippines in Northam Foodcourt selling seafood sinigang. It costs RM15 for a pot but is enough to feed two. I had tried making my own sinigang after I read about it from another food blogger’s blog.

My recipe for sinigang is over here. I didn’t make a post of the cooked sinigang because the pot I made didn’t turn out too tasty and it looked kinda ‘limpy and brown’.

So, yesterday, I got my first taste of sinigang cooked by Filipinos and I must say it is quite different from the one I cooked. I must have overcooked my pot of sinigang and hence, it turned out more like ‘kiam chye boey’.

As you can see, the soup is quite clear and the taste is mild. They use white radish, long beans, onions, tomatoes, red chillies and for the seafoods, they added prawns, squids and fish. It is an appetizing dish, perfect with white rice. However, it is still nothing near our Malaysian assam pedas or kiam chye boey. Malaysia boleh!

The stall sells non-halal foods.

    Is it sour or salty? I have never tried any filipino dish before.

    It is sourish! hehehe and sometimes spicy! nice to eat during rainy days in the philippines. it is a classic dish in the philippines . we usually used a “sinigang mix” available/sold only in the philippines or pinoy stores in kotaraya. the sinigang meat can also be substituted with ‘pork’ yummy & the best! dippin it in fish sauce(drooling!) , by the way lilian im currently staying in KL , may I now where is the Northam foodcourt located? and also that is an expensive sinigang! 🙂
