The Best Chicken Pork Adobo in Cebu

This is a guest post by  James Edlund.

Chicken pork is something which I don’t usually think of as a delicacy but in the Philippines, China, and Japan, it is certainly on top of the range stuff.

There is a wide variety of restaurants which serve this kind of dish especially in Philippines, and one which springs to mind almost immediately is the Jo’s Chicken Inato, which is really a beautiful place to sit and eat.

Jo’s Chicken Inato has everything offered by the beach-side terrace cafes on the Cebu Island — pork adobo, Anejo rum, even palms trees and very nice interior. Granted, the palm trees are plastic and the ocean is quite far away but everything is quite magical and truly beautiful.

I have the opportunity to sample their chicken pork with sauces and aromas which make the taste truly something special. Although this might not be to everyone’s taste, Jo’s Chicken Inato is definitely the place to go for if you want some good chicken pork adobo.

According to the Food Guide for Philippine restaurants, another good place to eat chicken pork adobo is Golden Cowrie Restaurant, located on one of the oldest streets in the Philippines. It has good chicken and pork adobo, sinigang, a sour soup with fish in it, and tinola.

Whether you are dining al fresco in summer or else indoors, the Golden Cowrie is always a popular choice where the food is good and the prices are reasonable. It is also a popular choice for tourists from different countries when visiting the Philippines.

The chicken pork adobo is basically braised pork and chicken in a tangy hot sauce which makes it pretty much a delicious dish.

The island of Cebu definitely offers a lot in terms of restaurants and places to go to, but the one I have recommended here is definitely something which you should try if you are into pork as well as chicken.  Cebu has everything, from excellent cuisine to location and suchlike.

  1. I’m not sure if we have that here in Manila also. We ate in one Chicken Inato in Tomas Morato, it was great but we never tried the adobo. Let me know if they’re the same. Thanks.
