Adobo: From clay pots to pizza pans
Resorts World Manila (RWM) has long been regarded as a one-stop venue for world-class dining. From French to Chinese, and from Impressions to Passion, RWM has the best flavors of the world covered. And with RWM’s promise to bring the best of the Philippines to the world, what better way to elevate Filipino cooking than by celebrating the distinct flavors of the iconic Adobo.
Adobo is a Spanish term referring to the marination of raw food in a stock or sauce comprised of several ingredients, including spices to enhance its flavor. In time, Adobo in Filipino homes would generally be synonymous to a viand best paired with steamed rice. Filipino cooks may have introduced different varieties, including Chicken Adobo or Squid Adobo, but the general procedure of cooking is the same.
The Adobo by itself is an established cooking innovation. But with the challenge of being world-class, it’s a masterpiece flexible enough to adapt without losing its original taste. RWM has shifted from marinating to baking; from clay pots to pans. RWM has taken inspiration from the Adobo to create a mouth-watering pizza.
Resorts World Manila's "CPA" or Chicken-Pork Adobo with Laguna Cheese Pizza is available at
Pizzasta in Prosperity Court, Bar 360, and in Remington Hotel for P560 or 476 GPs (16 inches)
and P320 or 272 GPs (12 inches)
RWM's take on Adobo is through its new signature dish, the “CPA” or the Chicken-Pork Adobo with Laguna Cheese Pizza. Strips of chicken and pork adobo rest on a bed of melted mozzarella and Laguna cheese laid on top of a hand-tossed pizza crust. As the name suggests, Laguna cheese is from the province known for its carabao-milk cheese or popularly, kesong puti.
The CPA with Laguna Cheese Pizza is available at Pizzasta in Prosperity Court and at Bar 360. Guests and even non-hotel guests can order the CPA at Remington Hotel. You can savor its authentic Adobo taste for P320 for the 12-inch serving or P560 for the 16-inch pizza. Resorts World Manila members can automatically avail 15% discount if they use their Genting Points (GPs) to purchase the CPA. They can just exchange 272 GPs for the 12” and 476 GPs for the 16”.
Indeed, the Adobo is a testament that even if we need to ride with changes brought by time, we can still embrace the things from the past, including food. Savor one of the best Philippine flavors, may it be after a fun time with the family at Newport Cinemas or at GameZoo, during a break from a shopping spree at Newport Mall, or in the middle of a vacation in one of RWM's luxury hotels. The humble Adobo has become truly world-class, and has come a long way from the clay pots to pizza pans.
