Suka Pinakurat is a variety of vinegar which is actually a fermented coconut sap originating from Iligan City. Fondly called as a derivation of “sukang tuba”, the vinegar is not really sour but more of spicy and chilli. According to the site, Pinakurat is a traditional Iliganon dish made from wild boar meat “sulop” cooked only by a flame-shut pot of boiling coco vinegar, chilies, and spices. The vinegar is named after this dish because it tastes similar to it. “Kurat” also means “magulat” or to be shocked or surprised.
