What to eat in Baguio City: Strawberry Sinigang at Zenz Bar and Restaurant

Strawberries in Sinigang? How did it happen?

Tourists and locals visiting Baguio City often go to Zenz Restaurant for this unique dish. One of their best-sellers is the Strawberry Sinigang. Guests can request for either pork, beef, shrimp or fish in their strawberry sinigang. It still tastes like the usual sinigang, but the strawberries add a sweet-tangy and fruity flavor to the broth. It's sweet but with still the right sourness for a sinigang. You'll surely enjoy it on a cold Baguio weather.

That's an all-time Filipino favorite with a twist by adding one of Baguio's well-known products, the strawberries.
