Winner of Celebration Media U.S.'s 2011 Talk of the Town Award for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction, The Adobe Cafe takes taste buds south of the border with a menu dotted with Mexican fare. Guests may enjoy pre-entree nibbles of filet mignon steak tips or jerk-spiced grilled calamari before dining on an entree of deep-fried poblano peppers brimming with cheese and salsa. Chefs frost southwestern crab cakes with pineapple-and-mango pico relish and jalapeño-mayo icing before serving them to hungry diners and mermaid birthday parties. Adobe's dessert selection provides a decadent closing curtain to each meal with warm apple crisp topped with ice cream, or flan topped with caramel sauce.
Though The Adobe Cafe sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Adobe Cafe
The Adobe Cafe's chefs find a way to accommodate nearly every diner without sacrificing the piquant flavors and aromas attributed to southwestern cuisine. They skillet-sear filet mignon and marinate chicken breasts and duck before tossing the seasoned meat with black beans, sautéed green peppers, and white onions for fajitas. But they also alter their traditional Mexican-inspired fare by substituting ground beef, chorizo, flank steak, and carnitas with seitan and tofu for vegetarians or meat eaters' pet goats. The chefs' use of ranchero sauce, roasted peppers, jerk seasoning, and even barbecue has earned the eatery a number of awards; The Adobe Cafe was recently named Best Southwestern Restaurant in Philadelphia by LocalEats.
