Tucked away among rows of residential houses is Adobo To’, an assuming restaurant set in what used to be the owners’ garage.The space is not to big and got filled up once the lunch crowd from neighboring offices trooped in. We were told that we were sitting in their family dining area but they were forced to open it up to serve the overflowing customers.
We’ve seen their tarpaulin many many times but did not pay it any heed until Jane and I got to talking about adobo and we both mentioned the name. We immediately set up a lunch date to go try it out.
Adobo is Filipino comfort food that everyone has a different version of. Adobo To’ has a few variations on its menu as well as some other Filipino favorites. In Adobo To’, you can choose whether you want pork or chicken, no need to choose in the dish itself.
I have more of a preference to pork so I got their unique best seller, Cheesy Pork Adobo (P85) It is basically classic pork adobo topped with cheese sauce and grated cheese. Each adobo order is served with tomato salad, egg cooked your choice (we found out after eating already so was stuck with hard boiled eggs),
I liked the gooey cheese sauce better and hardly taste the grated cheese once I mixed every thing up. It takes a little while getting used to the added taste of the cheese but once you get over the initial weirdness, you’ll find out you’ve finished the whole plate without noticing. I might find it hard ordering anything else here after getting a taste of the Cheesy pork adobo.
Binagoongnan Pork Adobo(P85). Irene’s choice due to her love of bagoong (fermented shrimp paste). She liked it a lot, I had a taste but I still preferred my cheesy pork adobo.
Coco Chicken Adobo (P85).Jane’s pick which she also shared with Irene and me. I like the creaminess of the coconut milk added to basic adobo.
Spicy Pork Adobo (missed the price). We decided to get an extra order since Jane wanted to try out their spicy version. It tasted ok with me, there’s some spiciness but it was just enough to be balanced out by the plain rice.
Adobo To’ is truly the adobo master, infusing their own take in the quintessential Filipino stew. My only problem with Adobo To’ is that everything here goes well with rice, which I should have less to keep from gaining weight.So I suggest you guys give them a try, meals that are value for money and are quite different from the norm.
