A few weeks ago, we were able to go out of our cave and visit SM San Mateo again. We played in the game arcade and planned to sing karaoke. However, since there were still a lot of customers waiting in line for the karaoke, we decided to have dinner first. One of the nearest restos was Adobo connection. We decided to dine here to give it a try. Let me share our experience here.
Affordable food offer
The price is one of the reasons we decided to try Adobo Connection. For a set of Php 599 only, we got to try their classic adobo, adobo sa gata, pansit, 10 shanghai rolls, chichadobo, veggie kare-kare, 3 pcs saba't gulaman and 5 iced tea. It was one of the many family set that they offer. If you are on a budget and you are a group of 5 above, this can be a good place to go.
Their wall decors speak a lot about the Philippines. It has a photo of our national hero, barong tagalog and maria clara outfits, our famous jeepney and kalesa, different tourist destinations from the Philippines and more. We enjoyed snapping a few photos while waiting for our food to be served.

Adobo connection in SM San Mateo can accommodate about 25-30 customers. With 30 being too crowded already. By the time we were there, there were about 16 customers including us and it was OK. We waited for about 10 minutes for our food to be served.
First, I was surprised with how small their servings are, they look big on photos. Although, it was more than enough for our group of 4 women and 1 toddler. I doubt it would be enough if we have males in the group.
Their food tasted fine, nothing extraordinary. Medyo nakakaumay ang adobo katagalan. Pero nabusog parin kami. Ang mga kinain namin dito, parang handa ng Filipino party. I'm not saying they don't taste good, I'm saying they're ordinary, nothing spectacular on the taste.
All in all, it was a good experience. And I'll be happy to go back here, especially when I'm on a budget. :D lol! It's the cheapest restaurant for me (next to fast food).
Adobo Connection SM San Mateo branch is located @
