Chicken adobo bro...
Nice! I'm guessing you were stationed at Whidbey? And maybe one of those "other things" is Mojo? LOL
I have fond memories of PI. My first time there, I exchanged some money on base before heading out in town. When my buddies and I went out the gate and walked across the bridge, there was an old lady there, with a hibachi type grill, cooking up skewers of meat. As soon as I smelled it, I told my buddies I was going to stop and get some.
I had no idea how much anything cost, so I pulled a 50 Peso bill out of my wallet, which at the time was less than six bucks. I held up the 50 and asked her how many I could get for it. With cat like reflexes, she snatched that bill out of my hand and joyfully exclaimed "All of them, I give you all of them"!
There was no way I could say no. She had a coffee can with a bunch of them in it, and she loaded up her grill several times before they were all cooked. I shared them with my buddies and we pigged out while laughing at the whole deal. It was pretty funny.
Not me, but thank you all for your service!
Does she make Mami soup? I love that stuff.
Hmmm....no....I've never heard of it or heard her family mention it either.
But sinagang soup with pork/fish?....oh yeah...I can eat the whole pot if I'm allowed to.
Back to topic....
(EDIT: I just checked out mami soup....looks delicious)
--- the scary thing about Lumpia....the worse the ingredients.....the better it tastes !!
...parts of the pig that we (westerners that is...) would throw away, and parts of cabbage/veggies the we would feed to the pig..... make the absolute best Lumpia.
Being blind in my right eye kept me from all four branches and the Coast Guard. Thanks to those who have and do serve!
Yeah, Whidbey Island NAS. And yes, I will be making some Mojo, but I will be using higher-end ingredients than those used in most bars in Olongapo City.
Oh, and the street vendors with hibachi grills: Monkey meat, at least that's what everybody called it. One vendor told me "Pork." His partner smiled and said "Monkey meat." Whatever, drink enough Mojo and San Miguels and you didn't care.
At least I never ate Balut!

We did some volunteer work outside Olongapo at an orphanage.
they had PI marines go with us, locked and Loaded, afterwords we went out to eat, they ordered some soup, it was pretty darn spicy hot, us Texans asked for more, some of the city boys spit it out....no idea what the heck it was...good times.
I remember monkey meat as well..
