Addidas……….It is not the brand of shoes as you are thinking right now, its a name of dish we called when we cook chicken feet in our place. This is a popular appetizer back home specially for “gin bulag” or “tropang emperaning” (for Gin and brandy drinker). Usually cooked adobo style with a little spicy. For those who still doesnt know what I mean for “adobo style” – it is Filipinos all time favourite dish maybe made with pork, chicken or some exotic dish like livers, internal organs of pork and etc. Adobo literally is a method of cooking made with garlic, onions, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. It is a sweet, salty sour dish……………………..Did you know that chicken feet when boiled produces a gelatinous like soup stock. Studies saud that this soup stock is very good source of cartilage-building proteins and amino acids that are body needed. Amino acids helps building muscles and strong bones.
