A BRIEF HISTORY OF ADOBO
The Unofficial National Dish of the Philippines
Adobo is the unofficial national dish of the Philippines. There are hundreds of variations, but the basic idea remains constant, pork or chicken is slowly stewed in vinegar and soy sauce, peppercorns, garlic, and bay leaves. Adobo takes its name from the Spanish word adobado, which translates to “marinated,” but it appears that pre-Hispanic occupants of what later became the Philippines were making adobo before the Spanish came. The ancient version of this dish used vinegar and salt, as those were natural preservatives. When Chinese traders introduced soy sauce, adobo turned into the familiar dark-sauced dish that you’ll encounter around the country today. A good adobo defines what Filipino comfort food is all about.
