This is another tasty version of the famous adobo, the adobong pato or duck adobo. This is very similar to chicken adobo since they are both poultry meat. But ducks are water fowl and the taste is gamey compared to domesticated chicken. And they are a lot more tough and takes longer time to cook. But since you will be using sprite or 7-up in cooking this adobo, this will act as a tenderizer and will lessen the cooking time plus it will add a more savory flavor to your adobong pato.
