Sinamak is Iloilo’s version of spiced vinegar. This condiment derives its appeal and zest from several spices that were combined and soaked in vinegar for several days to several weeks.
This spiced vinegar is a good condiment for grilled and fried foods. Chicken Inasal, one of Iloilo’s famous chicken dishes, is best eaten with Sinamak. Some dishes in our recipe roster can be more enjoyed if eaten with this spiced vinegar too. Here are a few of them:
Pritong Bangus, Pritong Tilapia, Inihaw na Liempo, Grilled Isaw, Pinoy Fried Chicken, Ukoy, Lechon Kawali, Tokwa’t Baboy, Chicharon Bituka, and Inihaw na Pusit.
