Have you heard of Strawberry Sinigang, Strawberry Taho, Strawberry Adobo when in Baguio? They serve it in Mines View Park Hotel and Cinco Antonio’s Bistro and Restaurant.
Strawberry Sinigang is definitely not a hyped, because it’s delicious. I just love how every piece of strawberry gives the sinigang a kick of sweetness. It’s a mix of sweet and tangy taste that will bring excitement to your taste bud. It taste different but it’s yummy! Go get intrigued. You can try it at home if travelling to Baguio is not possible any sooner. You can get that feeling and taste of Baguio wherever you are now. Happy cooking!
