Just before we moved to Kuwait, Rachel wrote a blog post entitled Things I Will Miss. She listed a few of the things she was going to miss the most about Minnesota. One of the things she mentioned was her favorite restaurant: Chipotle. We have only been in Kuwait for a couple of months, but we have already made a plan to visit Chipotle as soon as we return home next summer. We’ve promised each other that as soon as we arrive at the airport, we are going straight there!
Well, a couple of weeks ago we discovered something awesome! A friend of ours discovered a new restaurant that just opened a few days earlier called Adobo Burrito. He described it as similar to Chipotle, and we both thought to ourselves, riiiiiiiight! We both knew that there was no way possible that a place could be even close to as good as Chipotle was. However we have been craving it since we got here, so we went to give it a try.
Kuwait City is a major metropolitan area, but we were lucky to find out that Adobo Burrito was only about a 15 minute walk from our apartment! As soon as we walked in, our jaws dropped! Inside, it looked almost exactly like Chipotle. It was laid out the same, similar decorations, and had that same “industrial” look with the corrugated metal on the walls. We were immediately greeted by the owner, a young Kuwaiti guy who just moved back here from Washington D.C. We checked out the menu boards and the food line, and it was just like Chipotle! You could order a burrito or a bowl with cilantro-lime rice, beans, fajitas, corn salsa, pico de gallo, cheese, and everything else! They also had homemade tortilla chips with fresh guacamole that tasted so good! To be honest, I don’t think it was quite as good as Chipotle, but it was dang close. We definitely enjoyed it, and it will keep us going until we get back to Minnesota next summer.
Since that first trip there a couple of weeks ago, we haven’t been back yet. Oh but don’t worry, we’ve had it at least once a week. Here’s the best part about Adobo . . . . . . THEY DELIVER!! Yes ladies & gentleman, you can have a Chipotle/Adobo burrito delivered to you on your couch! #bestcountryever
