A Restaurant’s Take

Adobo is the most popular item at JNJ Turo Turo in Quincy, and you’ll understand why after just one taste of the tender chunks of meat stewed in a marinade of vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and bay leaves. Chef and owner Jervin Erasquin cooks with chicken thighs on Fridays, pork shoulder on Saturdays, and both chicken and pork on Sundays. — Wendy Chow
