These tacos were much larger than I expected. The fish were slightly greasy, but they tasted great and they definitely don’t skimp on the toppings. The rice, on the other hand, was really lame and dry.

Chicken adobo burrito – Papalote Mexican Grill

Chicken adobo burrito - Papalote Mexican Grill
Chicken thighs, garlic fried rice, tomatoes, flour tortilla. $8.75
Papalote Mexican Grill, San Francisco CA

This is one of the best Mexican-Filipino fusion food items I’ve tried thus far. I loved that they used chicken thighs instead of breast to keep it more authentic. It’s packed with flavor and the burrito and pretty big. Mmm…
