Adobo at First Draft

After a head-on motorcycle accident derailed his career in finance, Blaine Baggao re-evaluated his professional path, ultimately launching Adobo in 2016 as a food truck that combines his New Mexican and Filipino roots. Now you can find him at a counter inside First Draft in RiNo as well as at a new brick-and-mortar location on Federal Boulevard, where Adobo's menu boasts many green chile-covered items, including fries loaded with smoked carnitas and cheese; carnitas deviled eggs with lime crema, cotija and cilantro; and crispy wontons. The best way to enjoy this flavorful (vegan!) green chile: in a bowl loaded with smoked carnitas and warm flour tortillas on the side.
