    This thread is about the Philippines, about its culture with a little bit of history.

    A brief summary about the Philippines is that it is republic nation-state and an archipelago in the Asia-Pacific. It has about 7,000 islands. The Filipino culture is originally a Malay culture but was later influenced by Indian culture, dynastic Chinese culture, Spanish culture and American culture, thus creating a somewhat "unique" blend of East-meets-West.

    Adding to that is the myriad of local cultures across the Philippine archipelago.

    Majority of the Filipinos adhere to the Roman Catholic faith though there are also Filipinos that adhere to Christian-based faiths, including Christian-based faiths that were established by Filipinos such as Iglesia ni Cristo. Another religion Filipinos adhere to is Islam, which is more common in the southern island of Mindanao.

    For more info about the Philippines, it culture and traditions.

    Filipino Adobo


    What is Adobo?

    Adobo refers to a method of marinating and stewing any cut of meat or fish in a briny mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, and spices. This cooking method, like most of Filipino culture, is of mixed heritage. While not official, many consider Chicken Adobo to be the national dish of the Philippines.

    There are many regional varieties of adobo, but most recipes include vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves, and black pepper. The meat is marinated then stewed in this mixture which yields a very flavorful, tangy, and tender meat. Adobo is usually served over a bed of fluffy rice to absorb the deliciously tangy sauce.

    Filipino adobo should not be confused with the spicy Spanish adobo sauce. Although they both share the Spanish name, they are vastly different in flavor and ingredients.
