Great meal!

Odd combination of flavors--seemed Mexican with the yellow rice and peppers, but the coconut milk added a Thai twist that was strange, and the bok choy also seemed out of place. Chicken cooked well, too much rice, didn't quite work.
1 Stars
Way over cooked. The rice and the chicken. The adobo sauce taste was just ok. Never again.
5 Stars
2nd time ordering and still excellent. Much bigger portion this time. My favorite munchery meal.
4 Stars
Very delicious. Only change i would make is to heat the sauce before eating as it becomes a little gelatinous
5 Stars
great dish... ive only had adobo with soy/vinegar base... the coconut milk was a nice touch...
4 Stars
Helps that I love coconut, and both the curry and rice had a delicious coconut flavor. Chicken was tender and juicy, rice was tasty, just overall pretty yummy. A little greasy, but it's dark meat so I guess that's to be expected.
5 Stars
Another amazing dish from Munchery. This one might just be the best ever. The sauce is soooo good, the chicken had lots of flavor, and vegetables nice and crisp. Outstanding!
5 Stars
I was so impressed with how tasty they made this chicken. The sauce was light and flavorful. The rice was yummy. I loved the bok choy on the side. I will definitely be ordering this again.

The chicken was really undercooked - I wound up throwing most of it out. The rice and veggies were good though.
5 Stars
I was impressed! Perfectly spiced, nice amount of richness to the sauce. Chicken was juicy. The chicken piece didn't look as as big the one in the photo, but after finishing every last delicious bit, I was satisfied with the portion and taste.
5 Stars

My husband adored this. He gave me a bite, and the chicken was incredibly flavorful, just as it should be.
4 Stars
Boyfriend loved it. I tried some - it was good, but not as my order, the Mary's Chicken breast by Chef Scott Newman, hence 1 star less.
4 Stars
Delicious. The adobo chicken was fantastic and had a fall-off-the-bone quality. It tasted great balanced with the crisp bok choy. The peppers were nice but could have been integrated into the dish more. Overall a very successful dish.
5 Stars
I ended up heating this in the microwave and forgot the sauce but it was still quite nice and tasty. I'd like to try it again and use the sauce!
5 Stars
My partner tried mine and loved it - luckily it was being offered the next night so we ordered it (and a second one for lunch the next day). Yeah, it was that good!
5 Stars
Delicious! The chicken was moist and tender and the sauce was great - just the right mix of sweet and savory. The rice and veggies were perfect accompaniments and the portion was generous. We'll definitely be ordering again!
5 Stars
Chicken was tender and perfectly cooked. The sauce added just the right amount of sweetness. Our favorite so far.
5 Stars
Perfctly cooked chicken, and the coconut cane sugar combo works out very well. Wish i could order this fresh off the stove.
4 Stars
We really enjoyed this. The chicken is very soft (the opposite of rubbery), and the sauce is delicious.
5 Stars
Moist and delicious!! Great flavors, well done again Chef Reyes!!
5 Stars
The 5-year old and I fought over this dish! Based on the description, I thought the braising sauce might be too strong for her and only ordered one. Sadly (for me), she claimed it. A very well balanced dish in terms of flavors and portions!
4 Stars
The coconut sauce with the rice and bok choi was delicious. Would definitely get this again.
5 Stars
Nice! Will order again.
5 Stars
I've orders this a few times but finally have had the chance to say how delicious this is! Ample portions that could make 2 meals. I especially loved the inclusion of the grilled sweet peppers which I hope Chef Reyes will keep next time. 'Sarap!'

Veggies were unflavorful but the chicken was tender
5 Stars
really yummy. all the flavors meshed really well.
1 Stars
The rice had good flavor, but was stale and dry. The chicken was tender, but was way to salty. I did not finish this meal.
5 Stars
Mmm. I get this one from Reyes whenever I see it on the menu. This has consistently been a mouth-pleaser for me and I usually am scraping up every last bit of the sauce.
3 Stars
The flavor of the chicken and sauce accompaniment were delicious, but the rice was undercooked. I definitely was crunching on undercooked rice with every bite. Probably would not order again for this reason.
1 Stars
The rice is way under cooked. The chicken and sauce are really salty. This is the second time I ordered this dish and very disappointed this time. I don't know if I want to order this again since the quality of this dish is inconsistent.
5 Stars
One of my fav dishes from Munchery thusfar. It's unique, & that always makes for a fun meal.. The chicken is tender & delectable-- cocunut sauce you will lick off the plate. Flavored rice to soak up sauce & veggie variety = the perfect compliment.
5 Stars
An absolutely delicious dish with nuanced flavors and textures. Reheated very well even after a full day in the fridge.
5 Stars
Another great meal from Raymond Reyes. The chicken was very flavorful and tender and the rice was seasoned perfectly. My husband loved the grilled veggies.
3 Stars
Too salty and not particularly flavorful. Won't order again

3 Stars
Flavor was good, but chicken was dried out, even after heating according to the directions.
3 Stars
Was a disappointment after the Thai Chicken. This one was sour and the texture was dry.
5 Stars
The chicken was so tender, the vegetables cooked well and the sauce made this meal absolutely delicious!
5 Stars
Absolutely would order this again. Sweet, wonderful adobo, just enough veggies and rice, a wonderful warming dinner on a chilly SF evening!
4 Stars
Very juicey chicken but I found the veggies to be lacking. Sauce was ever so slightly cloying.
5 Stars
LOVED LOVED LOVED this dish! The chicken was so tender & tasty. Nice work Chef Reyes. And I can't say enough about the delivery service at Munchery. They absolutely ROCK IT!!
5 Stars
Very much enjoyed this dish. Flavors were good, and the bok choy was a nice accompaniment.
3 Stars
Raymond's meals never disappoint but while the coconut chicken adobo was really good, the bok choy that came with it didn't seem to have been properly cleaned before cooking as there were chunks of soil still intact in the stems
5 Stars
Excellent! Would definitely order again!
5 Stars
Delicious. Good portion size, the meat was tender, even after heating. I would order again. I do wish it came w/ quinoa or a healthier carb option.
5 Stars
This meal has got to be in my Top 3 Favorite Meals from MUNCHERY. It was THAT good! I just loved it. Chicken was fall off the bone tender & the flavors were amazing!!! Thanks so much Chef Ray!
5 Stars
Great flavors!
5 Stars
The Coconut Chicken Adobo was delicious! The chicken was very tender and so full of flavor. The bok choy had a surprisingly refreshing crisp/crunch to it -- I thought after microwaving it, the bok choy would be soggy. The steamed rice was a nice side to mix with the coconut sauce. I've ordered this dish twice thus far and I wouldn't hesitate to get it again!
5 Stars
I haven't had such amazing adobo since my small stint in Manila! Chicken was super moist! Amazing!!
