Adobong Atay at Balunbalunan(chicken Liver, hearts and Giblets in soy sauce)

If you’re not a filipino, this might sounds exotic to you!! But not for us, It is a popular dish especially in small cafeteria(turo-turo)..Usually if we want to try exotic foods, we cooked it the “Adobo Style”..Exotic foods such as adobong palaka(frog), Adobong sawa(snake), and more. We also cook it a little bit spicy….Did you know that chicken liver is one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to promote healthy vision, promote fertility in males and females, and allow for proper embryonic development.
