Chicken Feet Adobo is a unique recipe of adobo using chicken feet. In our country, grilled chicken feet are commonly known as Adidas. It was coined from the famous brand of shoes. The term “adidas” is a colloquial term. Because some people is not yet accustomed to eating chicken feet. Some bystanders along streets would joke and call it “Adidas” to make it more appealing.
I guess that is what I remember from my childhood memory, and even in local movies that’s what locals would call it.
Nowadays, people are more diverse when it comes to exotic food and because of the world wide web, there are thousands of recipes that are being discovered and adapted by Filipinos. In the next ten more years, people can enjoy more delicious food as our horizons in international recipes become very accessible to everyone.
These chicken feet are one of the favorites in neighboring asian countries too.
