Sardinas at Sotanghon, Canned Sardine Soup with Sotanghon. A lot of Pinoy love canned sardines it’s a comfort food to most including myself, not unless perhaps you belong to the upper class who have never tasted canned sardine and the only sardine you know are those imported sardines in olive oil that come in fancy bottles. Hey I made some bottled sardine check the post here. Back to the subject, while I was browsing the web I stumbled upon a site (click here) where no other than Charice Pempengco is pictured eating sardinas, and there was also a video (click here) of her that mentioned her love of sardinas with suka and toyo (vinegar and soy sauce), that made me crave for canned sardine. This morning I made my self a canned sardine soup with sotanghon. This is not new it’s a comfort food in the household we regularly have the dish in the mornings or whenever the time is bad I mean when the budget get tight. There is no special cooking method every novice can cooked it, you might have been cooking it all the time and would like to share it to us. Love to hear any reactions from our readers.
