Beef Adobo from the Philippines
Adobo of any kind in the Philippines is usually very good, beef being my favorite. Adobo is basically the sauce that comes with the little strips of meat, which can be beef, pork, squid … the list goes on. Adobo sauce itself is a mix of garlic, soy sauce, vinegar and pepper. It’s a delicate yet very nice flavor.
One of the things about beef adobo that I always found a little amusing is that it’s also often referred to as beef steak. Which to me is a might big clump of meat. So watch out if you order in a place without seeing it and end up getting beef adobo.
Adobo is available all over the Philippines in many cantina’s and restaraunts. Prices vary from a local dish of 30 pesos all the way up to 100 + in more expensive places. I’ve had both, and prefer the local as it seems to have a little more kick.
