Adobo is a meat dish that is cooked for a long period with soy sauce and sugar. The meat used can be either chicken or pork, and the long cooking time makes the meat so soft it melts in your mouth. Carrots and potatoes are put into the mix to soften the sweet taste, making it a perfect dish to go with some rice.
Sinigang is a dish known for its naturally sour taste, which comes from an ingredient called sampalok (tamarind) and tomatoes. This refreshing veggie-filled soup can be mixed with shrimp, pork, or fish, and it is the perfect dish for a hot summer day.
