Arroz Caldo
Arroz Caldo is a favorite comfort food among many Filipinos. Despite its Spanish name, this dish is actually an adaptation of the Chinese congee or porridge. It is flavored with chicken, garlic, ginger, and safflower (kasubha). The latter is our local saffron which gives arroz caldo an appealing aroma, not to mention the bright yellow tinge. Arroz Caldo, which best represents the mixture of Filipino heritage by combining Spanish, Chinese, and Filipino flavors, is perfect for someone having a bad cold. It’s also great during rainy weather. It is one dish that you can eat any time of the day.
