WATCH: Liza Soberano responds to sinigang memes with taste test challenge
MANILA, Philippines — Liza Soberano received criticisms last year about her not being Filipino enough for her character in Philippine mythology-based drama fantasy series “Bagani.”
“And who says we’re not pinoy? My Father is full Filipino. I was raised by two Filipinos since the age of 4. I looooove sinigang i think that/s as pinoy as pinoy can get,” she wrote in a tweet back in February 2018.
This tweet led netizens to create memes about loving sinigang as proof of becoming a real Filipino.
Nearly a year since, Soberano appeared to have embraced the association of sinigang with her as she took on a taste test challenge of the various kinds of this Filipino dish.
“I’m Liza Soberano and I love sinigang,” the young actress said in a video titled “Liza And Enrique Guess Different Kinds Of Sinigang” posted by Black Sheep productions on Thursday.

Soberano wore a blindfold as she was fed by her real and reel life sweetheart Enrique Gil with different kinds of sinigang.
The 21-year-old actress correctly guessed four out of five, leading Gil to say in jest: “Now you guys know how much Liza loves sinigang!”
The challenge was part of the promotion for LizQuen’s upcoming film “Alone/Together” that is set to open in cinemas on February 13.
Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, “Alone/Together” marks the love team’s return to the big screen after their blockbuster hit “My Ex and Whys” in 2017. /kga
