WATCH: Selena Gomez Prepares Adobo in Her Cooking Show

Whenever foreigners ask about Filipino food, especially outside of the Philippines, adobo is a dish that is sure to come up. There are so many different variations of adobo in the country with every household having its own special take on the dish.

Well, Filipino adobo has made it into the spotlight once again as Selena Gomez is spotted attempting to prepare her own version Filipino adobo in the upcoming season of her cooking show ‘Selena + Chef’.

With the help of hotshot Filipino-Canadian celebrity chef Jordan Andino, Selena whips up some adobo using the iconic Filipino vinegar Datu Puti, which is displayed prominently on her kitchen countertop!  The secret to a great adobo, after all, is the perfect balance of our famous soy sauce and vinegar.

Watch the trailer of the upcoming season here:

We can’t wait to watch Selena try to whip up this Pinoy dish! The second season of ‘Selena + Chef’ is now streaming on HBO Max.
