Chefs spice Adobe Cafe's dinner menu of traditional Mexican dishes and American favorites with fiery flavors from the Southwest. Hands reach for easy-to-share appetizers such as texas ranchero wings made out of either seitan or chicken to kick off lively meals and warm up fingers for bean-roping competitions. Kitchen magicians marinate innovative filings such as duck meat, portobellos, tilapia, and seitan in a special house potion before grilling them to-order for custom fajitas. Pork medallions coax a tropical paradise out of barren plates with hills of fresh bananas rising from a sea of coconut-rum cream sauce. Beef and chicken tacos, corn tamales, and a vegetarian enchilada mingle on Adobe's Mexican combination arguing over which has the smallest carbon footprint. As dinner begins to shut down, slices of key-lime pie or sautéed banana sopaipillas reboot salivating tongues and minds with a sweet presentation of digestible data.
Watch breezes play among the trees on one of two patios outside the casual eatery or spy squirrels scheming on how to borrow a car from the free parking lot across the street for a joy ride.
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.
