  sampaloc soup (c) ukirsari
by ukirsari

beside chicken sisig, my choice goes to sampaloc soup. tom yam look-alike but lighter since without chili oil in it. and the taste, exactly the same with light tamarind soup in my country [we call it as sayur asam]. the difference only our sayur asam without prawn.
and it's very funny whenever i give comment in my lingo "oh, sayur asam, ya?" and aida reply with "is asam means tamarind? in our lingo tamarind known as sampaloc." well, more similarity about its lingo :D
