Product Review: Kusina™

There are so many frozen entrée options in the freezer section, but what if your taste buds are craving something different? One of my favorite comfort foods is Filipino cuisine. There aren’t many Filipino restaurants around, and often when you find one, it’s gone in a blink of an eye. I find it very surprising as Filipinos are the second largest Asian minority group in the United States. With a popular food truck icon like The White Rabbit Truck & Café in Los Angeles and, until recently, Pogi Boy in Orange County, Filipino food is coming on strong to be a household favorite like Chinese and Japanese food. Kusina™ (the  Filipino word for kitchen), can trace it’s dishes back to the Spanish who settled there 400 years ago. Over time, the cuisine has been infused with Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai and Malay influences.

Chicken Adobo is zesty, spiced Filipino style chicken dinner over rice. It is made from all natural ingredients and is gluten-free. Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines which shares some influences from Morocco. Select cuts of chicken are blended with vinegar and garlic marinade with hints of shoyu and black pepper. The chicken is infused with the adobo flavor. I would definitely add a little more of the sauce to flavor the rice a bit more. Thumbs up, way up!
