Take comfort from classic Filipino dishes such as Adobong Manok (a rich chicken dish cooked in soy, vinegar and garlic) and crowd pleasers Lechon Kawali Sisig (stir-fried crispy pork) and Kare-Kareng Buntot ng Baka (stewed oxtail in peanut sauce). Be adventurous and try the Sinigang (a soup dish that combines the savory taste of pork, beef or fish, and the sour taste of tamarind).
