SINIGANG is now world's no.1 best vegetable soup by TasteAtlas

 The famous Filipino vegetable soup was hailed as the No.1 world's best according to TasteAtlas. Sinigang has earned a total score of 4.8 out of 5 stars.

TasteAtlas is a global food guide of traditional dishes, local ingredients, and authentic restaurants which featured more than 10,000 foods and drinks.

Sinigang is "a true representative of Filipino cuisine," says TasteAtlas.

"A sour Filipino soup consisting of sampalok (fruits of the tamarind tree), water spinach, green pepper, cabbage, broccoli, eggplant, diced tomatoes, sliced onions, ginger, green beans, water, oil, and salt. The basic broth usually consists of rice washing, with the addition of a souring agent," it added.

"Ingredients such as pork, fish, milkfish, shrimp, chicken or beef may also be added to the soup. Sinigang is traditionally served hot and steaming as a main dish, with rice as its accompaniment. It is an often seen dish at special occasions such as birthdays or weddings, and over time, as the dish became more popular, there were new variations that used guava or raw mango instead of sampalok and each region developed their own version of the popular soup."

TasteAtlas also described Sinigang that matched perfectly with the country's tropical heat because of its "sour lightness."

The beloved Filipino soup also placed 19th among more than 160 vegetable soups in the world.
