What is Adobo? Adobo is one word that has many meanings depending on what part of the world you are in. In East Asia, Adobo is known as the unofficial national dish of the Philippines made with Chicken or Pork. The dish is named for its mixture of seasonings and the cooking method. In the Caribbean or Central, America Adobo refers to a variety of dried herbs generally used for meats and adapted by commercial brands. However, the word Adobo comes from the Spanish word ‘adobar,’ which means to marinate. This marinade is another mixture of seasonings with a wet vinegar base.
