Philippines’ Sinigang hails as the best vegetable soup in a recent rank post of Taste Atlas in their official page. With the rate of 4.8 stars along with Mercimek corbasi of Turkey having 4.6 stars and Saltibarsciai in Lithuania with 4.5 stars, Sinigang is the counterpart of Adobo.
Adobo is most likely to be salty in nature because it contains soy sauce while sinigang is sourly because it has vinegar. What makes sinigang even better is, aside from using vinegar, Filipino tends to use natural sour flavor such as bilimbi and Sampaloc as sour agent.
