When asked to compare himself to a dish, Coco Martin said with a smile: "Ako, adobo kasi habang tumatagal, lalong sumasarap."


Coco Martin prefers street food over "sosyal" dishes.

This was what the Ang Probinsyano lead actor revealed during his July 5 presscon for Sarsaya Oyster Sauce held at Las Casas Filipinas de Azucar in Quezon City.

"Kahit gaano ka-busy, kapag dumadaan ako sa Retiro, sa may Blumentritt, lagi akong kumakain sa paresan doon.

"Mula sa pagkabata ko hanggang sa nagtatrabaho na ako, yun talaga ang kinagawian ko. Hindi talaga ako mahilig sa pagkaing sosyal."

Coco admitted that he learned how to cook in the kitchen through the help of his grandmother.

"Marunong talaga ako magluto kasi nung bata ako, ako yung assistant ng lola ko every time na nagluluto siya.

"Yung favorite kong lutuin yung kare-kare kasi yung lola ko talaga, cook. 'Tapos ang tinapos ko talaga HRM [Hotel and Restaurant Management] kaya marunong talaga akong magluto."

Who are the stars who have already tasted the dishes that he cooked?

"Marami na...sina Tita Susan [Roces]."

Did Julia Montes have the chance to taste the dishes he cooked?

"Oo yata nung nagkatrabaho kami. Kasi pag pumapasok ako sa trabaho, lagi akong may mga baon. Either ako ang nagluluto o ang lola ko."

Does he have plans of putting up his own restaurant?

"Honestly, gusto ko sana ipagtayo...hindi naman restaurant, kahit man lang na carinderia ang lola ko.

"Kasi every day, kahit nagtatrabaho na po ako, every morning gumigising siya ng 4 a.m. para ipagluto ako ng baon ko.

"Iniisip ko rin na ayokong wala siyang ginagawa, e. Alam niyo naman, di ba, pag may edad na, pag wala na silang masyadong ginagawa, naiinip na sa bahay.

"Ang kinakatakot ko na baka manghina siya. Ngayon, iniisip ko na gawan siya ng kahit maliit na carinderia basta malinis para may pagkaabalahan siya."

Coco then quipped, "Para yung baon ko araw-araw, doon ko na kukunin!"

If he could compare his Ang Probinsyano leading lady Yassi Pressman to a dish, what would he pick?

"Ang hirap! Si Yassi siguro beef steak, isa sa mga masasarap kainin."

How about Julia Montes, what dish would he compare her to?

"Kare-kare," said the ABS-CBN actor with a laugh.

As for setting up his own businesses, Coco said that he already has a franchise of Bench Fix salon that his sister manages.
