When you went to Philippines, I am certain that you taste this most popular and the most delicious food of the Filipinos. Now, which of the two is the best???

Chicken Adobo

  1. Some people might be confused on if you are asking for a comparison with chicken adobo and lechon manok (chicken) or lechon baboy (pork). While lechon by itself usually refers to pig, you could be asking "chicken: adobo vs lechon" and asking which chicken is better.

    1. My visits to Manila are never complete unless we stop for lechon baboy at Elarz in QC. I am also fond of lechon baka at any number of places in La Loma.

      But to me, the signature dish is sizzling sisig. Aristocrat makes a great sisig, but I really love the sisig from Cowboy Express, a fast food chain.
