“"CPA" or Chicken and Pork Adobo is one of the Filipino's staple dishes. Actually, one can throw in almost any main ingredient into the soy sauce and coconut vinegar basic sauce. I think sugar cane vinegar works best. One could also use leftover fried/roasted chicken/pork. CPA takes me back to a lifetime ago in Cebu City, where I grew up. I would gladly forego spaghetti and other more elaborate dishes for the adobo served with piping hot rice. It reminds me of happy, noisy (and loud) conversations with my family around the dinner table.”
