Adobong Crab at Kangkong


Adobo……….The  first time I had a taste of this dish was I think back in the Philippines, to be specific I think it was in Dampa sa Libis. It is a famous fresh seafood wet market where in you will buy fresh seafoods or meat and let you decide how it will be cooked. It is a clean, great and comfortable place to enjoy your food. It is like a big wet market with restaurants on its vicinity. Now back to the dish, It is a crab cooked in our famous adobo way combined with ginger and kangkong……………………Did you know that crab is a good source of  lean protein, which has high protein which is good for athletes or body builders who doesn’t want to eat fish. Crab are also a good source for  chromium, which along with insulin helps in the metabolism of sugar maintaining the normal blood glucose levels. Also good for diabetic patients. ..
