  9. Spread a generous amount of the Wasabi-Mayonnaise mixture on each half of the Pan de Sal Ensure to cover all areas for an even taste
  10. On two halves of Pan de Sal, place a leaf of Romaine Lettuce each Make sure it covers most of the bread surface area for a balanced bite later on
  11. Next, evenly distribute the heated Adobo Chicken on top of the Romaine Lettuce on both halves of bread Use your tongs for this step to avoid burns from any residual heat from chicken
  12. Layer thinly sliced Tomato rounds atop the chicken layer on both halves of bread

Beti’s Reflections

The Pinoy-Nippon Lunchwich Fusion recipe came to me during a culinary adventure in the bustling streets of Manila, where I stumbled upon a quaint Japanese-Filipino fusion café. The unique blend of flavors in their signature sandwich sparked my curiosity, and I knew I had to recreate this delightful fusion at home.

This Filipino Japanese Fusion Sandwich is perfect for serving two people, making it an ideal quick lunch option. However, please note that it contains gluten and soy, so it may not be suitable for those with related allergies or dietary restrictions.

Our Pinoy Nippon Lunchwich Recipe features a harmonious blend of traditional Filipino and Japanese ingredients. The Pan de Sal serves as the soft and slightly sweet base for our sandwich, while the Adobo Chicken brings in a savory depth of flavor that’s uniquely Filipino. A dash of Soy Sauce and Mirin enhances the chicken’s taste with umami and sweetness respectively. The Japanese Mayonnaise Wasabi Sandwich spread adds a creamy kick, balanced by the crisp Romaine Lettuce. Pickled Daikon Radish and Atchara offer tangy crunches, while fresh Tomato slices add juiciness to every bite. Lastly, shredded Nori sprinkled on top introduces an oceanic hint typical of Japanese cuisine.

To create your own Adobo Chicken Sandwich Recipe at home, start by heating shredded Adobo Chicken with Soy Sauce and Mirin in a pan until well coated. While that’s simmering away, slice your tomatoes thinly for later use. Mix your Japanese Mayonnaise with Wasabi paste for an exciting spread that’ll go on your halved Pan de Sal breads. Layer each bread half with Romaine Lettuce before piling on your heated Adobo Chicken followed by Tomato slices, Pickled Daikon Radish, and Atchara evenly distributed for that tangy crunch we love so much in Asian Fusion Cooking! Sprinkle shredded Nori over each prepared half before topping off with the remaining bread halves – voila! Your very own Pinoy-Nippon Lunchwich is ready to be savored.
