Adobo-sa-Puti

Adobo is a dish made out of four important ingredients namely the meat (pork or chicken), soy sauce, vinegar and loads of garlic, without one of them it cannot be called an adobo apart from one exception, this adobo sa puti. Basically adobo sa puti is a similar dish sans soy sauce, I am not sure about its origins but my wild guess is that this was created by someone who planned to make adobo and found out there was no soy sauce, instead of buying one to save money he used salt as a replacement.

The result is really quite the same as the flavour notes of an adobo dish is very sour and very salty which the replacement can also achieve.
