May 2, 2022
Just like the saying, “Mother knows best” our moms also know how to cook the best version of every meal. They have a way to satisfy our taste buds and improve our mood no matter what the situation is.
With this in mind, here are the top 5 dishes every Filipino claims that their mom cooks the best:
I’m making Chicken Adobo tonight. The dish my birth mother would make me every year on my birthday when we would have visitation. And I tasted it and broke into tears. pic.twitter.com/Hccj0Dc60j

Whether it is pork, chicken or veggies, your mother’s Adobo is a sure hit in every fiesta and family gathering. There are a lot of ways on how to cook this dish. Some marinate it first with soy sauce and vinegar while others sauté it first before pouring the sauce.
In thousand of adobo but my mother’s cook is my favorite. pic.twitter.com/OL7S7AJ7IS

Arguably the king of all Filipino desserts (Excuse me Halo-halo but you have leche flan on top of you, literally) leche flan is one of those desserts that Filipino gatherings can’t live without. Every Filipino mom sure has a different way on how they make leche flan. But each of them has a way into our sweet tooth.
Ang sarap ng leche flan ni mother! It’s creamy, it’s eggy, it’s smooth. Sweetness is on point. Caramel on top is refreshing. Something that you will not push aside after one bite but would want more. Best leche flan I’ve tasted ❤️❤️❤️
Christina Tosi is shaking! Haha

Another classic Filipino dish, the argument is still up whether kare-kare or adobo should be Filipino’s national dish. Anyhow, kare-kare is also one of the special dishes our mothers prepare when there’s a visitor or special occasions. Despite its many versions and upgrades, there’s no doubt that kare-kare remains one of the favorite among Filipino dishes, especially if our moms cook it for us.
kare kare ni mother earth woohooo winner 👸💖

mother knows best daw pero hindi rin alam ng nanay ko pagkakaiba ng menudo, mechado, afritada, at kaldereta 😭

You actually read it right, there is a big confusion between these 4 dishes so we ought to just include all of them and just count it as one. Regardless, all these dishes represent our happy childhood whenever our mom cooks these for special occasions.
My mother’s Afritada should be tried by the entire world.
