Adobo Connection Lunch
After enjoying the massage Shui Hilot, Jessa and I were hungry so we scouted the area for a place to eat. We had a few choices around the Dela Rosa Carpark but we landed in Adobo Connection as their set meals looks good on the budget. Adobo connection’s specialty would be adobo and their different ways to cook Adobo.
Adobo is the name of a popular dish and cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat or seafood marinated in a sauce of vinegar and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade.
We availed of their set meals where you get a serving of the adobo dish, one cup of rice and iced tea. You can also add PHP30 to get some side dishes which we also availed.
Adobo Connection Modern Adobo
Our signature pork and chicken adobo simmered in our unique nutty blend of herbs and spices.
Adobo that is spicy and nutty. There was supposed to be chicken based on the description in this one but all I can was pork. The nuts here bothers me because it would suddenly add a “crunch” while I’m eating.
Adobo Connection Mama’s Mixed Adobo
Slow cooked chicken in traditional sweet, peppery, garlicky and vinegary adobo sauce.
Adobo that’s sweet! This tastes more similar to our traditional adobo and I like this better than the modern adobo.
Adobo Connection Gising Gising
This was spicy and the slices were big. I liked Recipe’s version better.
Adobo Connection Poqui Poqui
sautéed grilled eggplant in onion, tomato and egg
I had no idea what this one is. I just saw that it has eggplant on it so I tried it out.
Well, the serving size wasn’t to what I expected but since we are good in budgeting our viands, we were able to finish our rice and have leftover adobo for another cup of rice (that’s talent! lol).
We were also given a survey sheet to check on our dining experience here. I had no problems with the food since it was new to me (compared to the home made adobo I used to eat at home) but I did comment on the insects flying around inside. There wasn’t a lot because I just on waving my hands on one stubborn fly. I’m not sure if they noticed me or not because I have been doing it a lot during the course of our meal. If only one of them got a fly swatter, said “excuse me”, and slapped the %#&* out of that fly I would have been grateful.
Overall, I had a good meal here. I’m curious at their other versions of cooking adobo though so that can be in another visit.
Till next time,
