Adobo is considered as the Philippines national dish. As the name suggested, this is one of the many Spanish-inspired inclusions in the Filipino cuisine. There are many variations to the technique and ingredients employed in the preparation of this dish but the common ground to all is the subtle sourness of vinegar and the aroma of garlic and bay leaf. Pork or tofu may be used in place of chicken.
