Sinigang Fish Chips Let You Enjoy the Flavor of Sinigang in a Crunchy Snack

July 18, 2018

We’ve tried sinigang fried chicken, and we’ve tried sinigang risotto. There’s endless dishes that could be made with the help of an instant sinigang mix. So we decided to use that mix as though it’s powdered flavoring, and dust it over some chips. Fish chips, to be specific.

We got the fish chips from Zubuchon,but you can look for them at your local palenke.

Minimal effort for maximum flavor, these crunchy fish chips put your sinigang addiction to the real test with undiluted tongue-to-flavor-mix contact. The asim is real, but how else are you supposed to know you’re Filipino unless you love sinigang? (Low blow on old news? #sorrynotsorry)
