FOOD STOPS: Adobo Connection

When searching for the best adobo in town, many would claim that their one is the the best. And with the almost infinite number of adobo recipies that one can actually make and taste, it is one of the most diverse dish in the Philippines, if not the whole world.
And I do consider myself as a "Adobo Critic" as I have tasted a lot of different recipies, styles, textures and flavors from the simplest to the exotic. But what if I do want to taste the adobo that me and my peers will like? The missing link is solved with ADOBO CONNECTION.

Me and fellow bloggers Sarah and Clarissa stumbled upon the restaurant and saw the variety of unique menu that showcases a number of adobo menus and also some food items that you can not see in other places.  Of course, a unique menu is not the only only criteria of excellence, the  experience, ambiance, taste and also price are the main factors.
