Don't Sound Like a Tool: How to Pronounce Common Filipino Dishes

Categories: Audio
Don't Sound Like a Tool is SFoodie's series of audio pronunciation guides to sort-of-common-but-not-obvious words we keep encountering on wine lists and menus. No more shame, no more pointing, no more godawful imitations of a language you don't speak.

As an extra to last week's review of Patio Filipino in San Bruno, we figured it was only appropriate to devote this week's installment of Don't Sound Like a Tool to Filipino dishes. Yeah, we all know to pronounce adobo, but what about the ginataang pictured below? Because you know you want to order it.
