ADOBO LATIN KITCHEN
Jose and Nilda Pinargote opened Adobo Latin Kitchen in 2017. Both have deep roots in Puerto Rico but moved to the Lehigh Valley years ago and had been exploring ways to share their love of Latin food and culture with the community around them. Jose says the couple opened up shop in the Easton area because it’s close to where they live, and because of the dearth of other Latin restaurants in that immediate area. “Our approach was simple: serve authentic Puerto Rican dishes in a clean and fast-casual setting that would welcome everyone.”
What to try:
Their number one dish is rice with beans and roast pork (arroz con gandules y pernil), a traditional Latin entrée. “You haven’t had Puerto Rican food until you have had this dish,” Jose says. The pork is seasoned with a house blend of spices and then slow roasted for five to six hours until it falls apart. Adobo also features other traditional dishes like mofongos and the classic empanadas.
