"Adobo" is one of the best dishes cooked in Philippine cuisine. Although Adobo comes from the Spanish which means "sauce, seasoning or, marinade", the cooking method is indigenous to the Philippines. Adobo is slowly cooked soy sauce, vinegar, crushed garlic, bay leaf, and black peppercorns and often browned in the oven or pan-fried afterwards to get the desirable crisped edges. Adobo was also called the quintessential Philippine stew, served with rice both at daily meals and usually at feasts.
