Pinangat or Paksiw? What’s the difference? Pinangat is a Filipino dish that is similar to Paksiw. The difference between the two is that Paksiw uses vinegar, while Pinangat uses sour fruit like tamarind, santol, and kamias.
Mangan’s Bangus Pinangat uses santol for this enticing dish. The taste of the soup will surely make you feel sentimental, as the sourness of the soup with a hint of sweetness and a familiar aroma of the Santol fruit will give you comfort especially during rainy season. As you take a bite of the Bangus, you can still taste the distinct flavor of the fish. The soup is not overpowering the taste of the fish.
