My Pinay friend asked me to buy 2 bottles of suka pinakurat when hubby and I went to Seafoods city in Sacramento, California last week. I was curious how it looks like but a little bit disapppointed when the store had it out of stock. Apparently, suka pinakurat are sold like a hotcake!
Because I really wanted to see this suka, though I can Google it myself, we made a side trip to Melvicky International Store in Reno to check if they have it, and thank God they had 3 bottles left! And I was like, "Wow, $3.25 per bottle?!" The bottle is junior size only. I was really shocked! Then I thought, "Hmm... no wonder it is called Suka Pinakurat, hahaha!" Pinakurat is a Bisaya word from the root word "Kurat" which means, "astonish, shock, surprise" something like that, hehehe!
I got a bottle because my friend wanted 2 so I tried it right away and I was "nakuratan" because it tasted not really good as I thought, not as good as Spiced Coconut (Tuba) Vinegar which only cost $2.99 for a senior size bottle. Please refer to the photo below.
I don't think I am going to get crazy about this Suka Pinakurat like my friend, hehehe! It is good but not really really good. It is overpriced.
Thank you for dropping by. You have a good one!
