Bulalo is a Filipino stew made from beef
shanks and marrow bones,also called beef shank soup.Bulalo is ranked as one of the top Nilaga (boiled) dishes in the Philippines due to its
rich taste and very satisfying broth. Unlike others, like Nilagang Baka of Beef Soup Bones, which are either too bony with not enough meat or too meaty with not enough bone. As we all know, meat that is cooked with bones in it tastes way better than it’s lean counterpart.
Bulalo or Beef Shank has a good sized bone as well as the meat part, and the one that other Nilagang Baka does not have is the Marrow which is very flavorful and very delicious. This is what really separates Bulalo from any other Nilaga. Bulalo can be found in most upscale restaurants for the reason being that it is not the cheapest choice of meat in the Philippines.
Some of the famous “Bulalohan” can be found in Tagaytay City
(Cavite) and Sto. Tomas (Batangas). Commercial restaurants also include Bulalo in their menu. I usually go to Tagaytay with overlooking view.
Adobo is the most popular Filipino dish
enjoyed by all classes. Adobo is typically served with steamed white rice. easy to prepare and has a long shelf life. There are different ways of cooking adobo.
You can use pork, chicken or both (combination of chicken and pork) with vinegar, soy sauce and more garlic. Some cook this with enough sauce, some are
dried and some also put potato and/or red bell pepper. Its origins are with the Spanish colonizers — adobo is the Spanish word for a marinade and
it is used in many Latin American cuisines, including Mexican and Puerto
Rican.— but Filipinos have happily adapted it as their own.
The vinegar marinade makes a dish that stores very well in the Filipino heat.
Endless varieties of adobo exist and each region has its own specialty. Besides chicken and pork, there is fish, squid, green bean and even eggplant
