I’ve been hearing all the raves about Papalote’s and the famous adobo burrito over the past year or so, I decided to finally try it out. We’ve no doubt passed by it numerous times asking ourselves if we really wanted it, but didn’t really feel driven to look for parking most of the time. So if you have patience looking for parking, by all means, this is worth the try.
First we were welcomed by bold colored walls, dope paintings, the oddest adornments hanging from the ceiling, the scent of good food, and a friendly face at the register. Ahh, decisions, decisions. As much as I wanted to try the Adobo Burrito, one of the guys were getting it, and since I’m a big fan of Mole (pronounced mol-eh), I went for the Mole burrito. Mole is a mexican dish that consist of meat cooked in a mexican chocolate based sauce for a sweeter-but definitely not candy-like taste. Mikey ordered the Adobo Burrito and Steve ordered the Carne Asada Quesadilla. Since I’m a big fan of salsa and chips, each meal comes with their own bag of chips and sauce-which I thought was thoughtful because at usual mexican restaurants, it’s one full bag per order or something shady. At others they have a self serve station, where you can pack as many bags. Ahh, let me stop there. I’m being a heffer. ANYWAY, here are some photos to satisfy that hunger (I’m such a tease):
