These ain’t Burger King, but you most definitely have your guacamole your way right away at Adobo. Prepared tableside in a traditional stone molcajete, or Mexican mortar and pestle, you have the opportunity to control every aspect from spice level to the potential offensiveness of your garlic breath. Though we’ve found if you confine your preferences to the chili quotient and let the guac preparers rock their own recipe which includes plenty of zingy lime and cilantro, you’ll get the best results.
