Adobo Connection now open at World Corporate Center

When we think of Filipino food, adobo instantly comes to mind. Even with countless of variations, adobo is still the ultimate Pinoy comfort food. “Adobo connects us all,” don’t you agree?

You'll be amazed at how affordable the dishes are!

Enough with the talk, I know you’re here for the adobo! Here are four variations of adobo that you can enjoy at Adobo Connection:

Kuya's Fried Mixed Adobo (Php 119). Also available for sharing (Php 179).

Kuya’s Fried Mixed Adobo is for customers who want adobo with a crunch.  It reminds me of my Lola’s adobo – fried, oily, and yummy!

Adobo Flakes

Adobo Flakes (Php 99)

With rice and fried egg, Adobo Connection’s Adobo Flakes is the perfect breakfast meal to start up your day.  But pair it with a bottle of beer and crush the chili in the vinegar dip and you have a crunchy pulutan!

Modern Nutty Pork Adobo

Modern Nutty Pork Adobo (Php 119). Also available for sharing (Php 179).

The Modern Nutty Pork Adobo is a different kind of adobo because it has crushed cashew nuts and tomatoes mixed in the sauce.  Probably that’s why this is my personal favorite.  I miss tomato-based dishes!

Chicken Adobo sa Gata

Chicken Adobo sa Gata (Php 109). Also available for sharing (Php 169).

My Bicolana roots have taught me how to cook Adobo sa Gata.  I cook it the way Bicolanos do and that is to burn the shredded coco meat first before extracting its milk .  Adobo Connection’s Chicken Adobo sa Gata doesn’t have that burnt coco milk factor in it but its spiciness goes well with the mild sweetness of the coco milk that will make you ask for more rice.  You’ll have to forget dieting and just enjoy the adobo, haha!

Adobo Connection also serves other Pinoy dishes.

Beef Kare-kare

Beef Kare-kare for sharing (Php 189). Also available as a Double 2 Rice Meal (Php 129).

Adobo Connection’s Beef Kare-kare is the real thing, even at only Php 189. They serve big chunks of beef and the sauce is really made from ground peanuts and rice.


Gising-gising for sharing (Php 89). You can also order this as a side dish (Php 29).

Gising-gising is cut-up Baguio Beans (string beans) mixed with ground pork and cooked in coco milk. It is spicy and is best paired with Kuya’s Fried Mixed Adobo or with a plate of Sizzling Sisig (Php 169).


Poqui-poqui for sharing (Php 189). Also available as a side dish (Php 29).

It’s the first time for me to eat Poqui-poqui. This vegetable dish is like the usual Ensaladang Talong (boiled eggplant salad) I make at home except that it has egg.

A meal’s never complete without dessert. At Adobo Connection, you can enjoy leche flan in two different ways – as usual or wrapped and fried. Either way, expect to be satisfied.

Adobo Connection in World Corporate Center not only caters to the office workers of the said building but to students studying nearby and the residents of nearby condominiums. Guests can choose to dine indoors or al fresco (on top of the resto, how cool is that, huh?) which is perfect for those who will be eating their adobo with beers. World Corporate Center is the building that along the intersection of Shaw Boulevard and EDSA and across Starmall. It’s also just a few steps away from the Shaw Boulevard Station of MRT.
