DTI Shuts Down 3 Karinderias For Substandard Adobo!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is dead serious about its new initiative to establish national standards for the cooking of adobo.

In just the last 24 hours, DTI has closed three karinderias for violation of yet-to-be-established standards.

”We’re just being proactive,” a DTI official told The Adobo Chronicles.

The establishments were closed for:

  1. Using pineapple in the recipe
  2. Adding sugar to the recipe
  3. Adding CDO liver spread instead of the recommended Reno liver spread.

In addition to being shut down, the kariendera owners could face fine and jail time.

The McDonald’s And Mang Inasal Surprise Merger!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – As that viral marquee sign says, McDonald’s is the world’s no. 1 except in the Philippines where it can’t beat that big, fat, smiling bee (Jollibee). Not even the recent incident of the crispy-fried Chicken Joy can change that.

Now, McDonald’s is trying a new business strategy. It is merging with Mang Inasal, the famous Filipino grilled meat restaurant famous for its unli rice (unlimited rice).

The merger is a big boost to local employment since workers can now do a morning shift at McDonald’s and work the evening shift at Mang Inasal, as shown by this photo of a dual employee:

A McDonald’s spokesperson told The Adobo Chronicles that Mang Inasal will eventually renamed McInasal.
