The most Filipino food I can think of is adobo. You will encounter it in the Philippines in so many different versions but one thing you can count on is that you WILL encounter it. The base of adobo is pork, vinegar and soy sauce. My mother likes to add garlic and laurel leaves. Some people like to put in potatoes or boiled eggs. Gim likes to eat it with a fried egg. I like it with a ripe banana on the side.
Whatever way you eat it, it’s delicious and one of my most missed homecooked foods. I am just so lucky that Gim is a great cook. He made this adobo for me the other day. Just the way I like it – how my mom cooks it. ;-)
