What's your desert island food?
"Adobo, the unofficially official dish of the Philippines. Chicken and pork, braised for a long time in soy sauce, Datu Puti vinegar, fresh bay leaves, and black peppercorn. Maybe a little chili and onion (I know, not "traditional," please don't cancel me). Garlic fried rice along with it."
What's your favorite condiment?
"Crystal Hot Sauce. It's one of the few reliable constants of this tumultuous existence."
