For the dipping sauce:

  • a mixture of soy sauce and vinegar in a proportion that you like
  • grated garlic
  • shallots chopped
  • crushed chili (optional)


  • Heat the cooking oil in a wok or deep frying pan.
  • Using two forks, shred the cooked adobo. The finer the shreds, the crispier the result.
  • Place just enough shredded meat to line the bottom of the kitchen spider.
  • Plunge the spider into the very hot cooking oil and leave for about a minute or until the meat is browned and crisp.
  • Lift the spider from the oil and let the excess oil drip off.
  • Arrange the crispy fried adobo on top of rice. Sprinkle with crisp garlic bits and sliced scallions. Serve with the dipping sauce on the side.
