Chicken Adobo @ Patio Filipino San Francisco

Chicken Adobo $14 @ Patio Filipino San Francisco

The world should be covered in adobo, especially with this Chicken Adobo dish from one of the best Filipino restaurants in San Bruno, a San Francisco suburb. You can’t just go to a Filipino restaurant and not order an Adobo dish. Some call this an official national dish of the Philippines and for a good reason. It showcases everything awesome about that country. Hospitality, food, and more food! Chicken is so soft and juicy that it just falls off the bones. I still prefer boneless pieces for that extra softness. It has this great signature brown look from simmering in Adobe sauce for a while. All that long slow cooking that gives it extra nomnom. Come extra hungry because this portion is so significant that even two people won’t be able to eat it. Too big? No worries, it makes for a great leftover the dish! Goes great with a side of their nomnom garlic rice. Adobe and rice make for a great hangover cure!

What is Adobo, you ask? Let’s unleash our google skills, and Adobo is a Filipino cooking process of marinating the meat, fish or vegetables in a sauce mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and browned in oil.
