The beauty of adobo is in its simplicity. With just a few ingredients: protein of choice (chicken or pork, or both but not limited to), garlic, peppercorns (whole or crushed), bay leaf, and vinegar (which is a must!), plus patis (fish sauce), salt, or soy sauce for seasoning, you can cook it anywhere in the world. It is also a dish that best defines us as Filipinos with our fondness for acidity as observed in other food preferences like drizzling calamansi over pancit, eating green mangoes with bagoong, and subtle sourness in our sinigang. Maybe that’s why compared to other Filipino dishes, adobo is held nearer and dearer by Filipinos who crave a taste of home.

As an ode to this beloved dish and a ubiquitous way of Filipino cooking, Google celebrates the adobo by becoming its Google Doodle for today, March 15. And since we love cooking and eating adobo here at Bitesized, here a list of some of the most mouthwatering adobo dishes we’ve come up with!
