I’m not surprised if Pilipino “Adobo” has a Mexican origin. In fact many of Philippine food names come from México such as “Camote” (“Kamote” in the Philippines), “Champurrado” (“Champo(u)rado” in the Philippines). Some other Mexican Spanish words had been adopted by the Pilipino people such as “palenque” (“palengke” in the Philippines).

Non Fillippinos don’t know what Filipian adobo is. In America, Adobo, the restaurant, serves Mexican food and products sold at American grocery stores labled adobo are usually Mexican.

Most likely, it will be Hecho en Mexico
