Arroz Caldo is a funny one as it has a Spanish name but it really is congee and most probably influenced by our Chinese neighbors when they traded spices and textiles on Philippine shores. A Chinese business man eventually stayed in Philippines either marrying a Filipina or for business reasons, armed with Chinese cooking skills he used this knowledge in recapturing his cuisine but using Filipino ingredients that is locally available to him. This is how many Filipino dishes with Chinese influences was created.
