When I was a child, I always associated arroz caldo (literally, it means rice broth in Spanish) with getting sick. It was our family’s chicken noodle soup. As I grew up, I realized it was a good midday or afternoon snack. And as more years went by, I was shocked that some people actually ate it for breakfast!
If you ask me now, when I prefer to eat arroz caldo, it would be anytime! :)
** Arroz Caldo is a Filipino-style congee served with chicken. It is actually the only Filipino congee I enjoy, because the other variations like, goto, actually has tripe and some innards – something I am not particularly fond of **
