If there’s one Filipino dish that can be called a “national dish,” aside from lechon, it’s adobo. Adobo is the ultimate comfort food – it’s filling, delicious, and easy to prepare for feasts or packed lunch. It’s one of those dishes that evoke memories of home-style cooking and dining with one’s family and loved ones.
Adobo Connection is the brainchild of business partners Meredith Ngo, Jerome Uy and Kellda Centeno. Their dream to spread the love for this truly Filipino dish inspired them to open this restaurant chain.
The business was first launched on November 2010 in Makati. Now with over 20 branches and more to come, it takes pride in serving some of the best adobo varieties in the country and other Filipino food at affordable prices.
There’s something in the menu that will suit anyone’s taste. Among their best-sellers is their Chicken Adobo sa Gata, hailed as “Ang pinakamasarap na adobo in the Metro” (the most delicious adobo in the Metro) in a blind taste test by GMA News TV.
Kuya’s Fried Chicken Adobo is for adobo lovers who want their dish dry with that extra flavor and crunch in every bite. Those who want to nurse their sweet tooth will enjoy Mama’s Sweet Chicken Adobo, chicken with a sweet and tangy adobo flavor.
Then there’s the newly launched Lola’s Classic Adobo, the traditional savory recipe everybody grew up with. Add to that their unlimited rice and you’re in for a great meal. Of course, you can order your adobo with pork, chicken, or both!
You can also find contemporary adobo-style dishes like Adobo Flakes, Fish and Tofu Adobo, Adobo Pao, and the all-in-one meal Adobo Rice.
Add in some of their Filipino favorites to make your meal more special, like Gising-Gising, Beef and Vegetable Kare-Kare, Sizzling Sisig, and Leche Flan or Flan Turon for dessert.
The best thing about Adobo Connection is that it’s open for franchising to anyone who’s interested in traditional Filipino food, and who hopes to develop this love into a business venture.
There’s surely an Adobo Connection branch nearby that will satisfy your cravings for home-cooked food. It’s definitely a great place to enjoy all things Filipino and adobo. (If there isn’t one nearby, who knows, Adobo Connection may find its way into your neighborhood soon.)
