Twisted (Cheesy) Adobo

Have you ever tried adobo with cheese? When I first heard of this, I cringed, thinking it might be too rich for my palate.

But trying it for the first time proved me otherwise.

It was delicious!

Adobo has been one of the well-loved dishes in the Philippines. I've grown up cooking and trying out different types of adobo. With such simple, ready-to-grab-from-the-cupboard ingredients such as soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, lots of garlic and laurel leaves, and your choice of meat (pork or chicken), one's hunger can be easily satisfied with this gastronomic delight.

One of my all-time favorite adobo recipe consists of adding brown sugar to the basic adobo recipe, and cooking it till the juices evaporate and meat is cooked in its own oil.

As of today, I will add one more to my all-time favorite adobo list: Adobo To's Cheesy Adobo!

Yup, you got that right. Adobo with cheese!

It was a spur of the moment thing to try something new. Myzyl, Emmy and I tried out the Cheesy Adobo for lunch today, and boy, was it really yummy. The pork adobo is cooked with butter and topped with grated cheese and cheese sauce. It spelled d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

Aside from the famous Cheesy Adobo, Adobo To offers other various adobo dishes such as Spicy Pork/Chicken Adobo and Adobo with Coconut Cream. They also have non-adobo dishes like Binagoongan Pork and Sisig.

All their dishes are very reasonable. For only Php 85.00, you will get a boxed meal of adobo (of your choice), hefty serving of steamed rice, hard-boiled egg, tomato salsa, and a glass of orange juice. :)
