Arroz Caldo is one of the key dishes of the Philippines and is very telling of the cultural fusions that have created Filipino culture and cuisine. The name means“rice soup”in Spanish, but the dish is widely known to be Chinese in origin.

It is similar in form to the delicious and ever-versatile congee, though Arroz Caldo generally has a soupier consistency. It is traditionally made with chicken and chicken stock. While vegetable stock is a fine alternative, it often lacks the deep earthy flavors of the traditional version. Mushrooms help to balance the palate and adds a woodsy earthy bite.
