Do you know how to make chicken adobo?
Of course I do.
But what you really want to ask me is if I am Filipino enough?
Cuz I was born in America.
Though not in California.
then you ask me how did my family end up in Missouri?
and why don’t I speak Tagalog?
Does that make me less Filipino American?

Depending on the region,
Adobo could be prepared with more or less of the same ingredients
and it is still considered adobo.
