Adobo sa Gata

Switch up your adobo repertoire with gata or coconut milk, a traditional Filipino ingredient commonly associated with Bicol cuisine. Pouring this into the pot as a final ingredient lends the dish a rich, creamy flavor. This Seafood City version of the recipe takes even more inspiration from Bicolano cooking – it also includes chillies for a hit of spice.
