Sinampalukang Manok

Sinampalukang manok is a sour soup dish made out of chicken, vegetables, tamarind and tamarind leaves, nearly similar to original sinigang except for the use of chicken and tamarind leaves. So for those who does not eat pork or beef this is the best way to enjoy a very popular Filipino dish “sinigang”, it’s sour, it’s warming, it good for the cold winter days, it nearly taste like chicken tom yam, but with less spice.

    Manok is chicken in our local Malay dialect and also our ethnic Iban language. Some similarities in our languages. Love the look of the soup, looks thick and rich.
