adobong sawa


adobong sawa  (a-dó-bong sa-wá; Tagalog, Cebuano, Boholano, Bicolano, Ilocano, Novo Ecijano exotic dish) [n.] python adobo; meat of python snake cooked adobo-style.


Adobong sawa with chicharon balat ng sawa (python skin crackling) from Lamarang Steak & Seafood Restaurant in Cabanatuan City in Nueva Ecija province during one of my travels in central Luzon last summer of 2012
 
Adobong sawa can be prepared as masarsa (saucy) or pinatuyo (dry) kind of adobo.

I found this live sawa (python) on display at the entrance of Eagle Center in Malagos District, Davao City in April 2012
 
This python (actually there were several of them on display) at the Eagle Center in Malagos District, Davao City, is not for sale so you could take it home and cook into a delicacy. They are for the visiting tourists to experience how it feels to be hug by this constrictor reptile

A serving of flaked adobong sawa from the Lamarang Steak & Seafood Restaurant in Cabanatuan City in Nueva Ecija province during one of my travels in central Luzon last summer of 2012. This is cooked pinatuyo (dry) style.


Adobong sawa is an exotic delicacy in the Philippines and even considered by some as an aphrodisiac as it is thought to have a potent effect. There are those who experienced to feel the sensational warmness in the body after having this dish as pulutan (food served along with alcoholic drinks) in a drinking session.
