Filipino dish on Silom

Thanks to Pun and Pup (two of my Berlitz students) who told me about Little Home, a restaurant that serves Filipino food. One branch is only a few minutes away from my apartment.

I went there and found four or five Filipino dishes. Earlier I tried the first one--sinigang na hipon.

Sinigang na hipon may be translated as "Shrimps in Tamarind Soup".

And it is a disaster because it was not tamarind soup. But then what can one expect? I have not eaten any sour tamarind here. All the tamarind I have eaten here are sweet! Plus it also had cabbage!

Well they had most of the vegetables right and the shrimps were nice. But the tamarind is the heart of this dish.

I will try the adobo next time.
