Mexican Restaurant Week: ¡Philly no te rajes!
George Bernard Shaw once said “there is no sincerer love than the love of food."
Philadelphia has become a city of great culinary diversity offering exotic options to delight its growing community of foodies.
With diverse flavors, smells and textures, Mexican food is a favorite and a must for wide range of palates.
Its richness was recognized in 2010, when Mexican cuisine was declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
From May 1 to May 5, during Mexican Week, foodies will be able to satisfy their zest and appetite with the best Philly has to offer.
Local participating restaurants will feature special dishes and provide fixed prices on traditional plates, as long as you mention Mexican Restaurant Week when you order.
Participating restaurants include El Azteca (714 Chestnut St.), Las Bugambilias (148 South St.), Los Gallos (951 Wolf St.), La Veracruzana (908 Washington Ave.), El Rey (2013 Chestnut St.), Distrito (3945 Chestnut St.), Café con Chocolate ( 2100 S Norwood St.), La Calaca Feliz (2321 Fairmount Ave.), and Mole Poblano (1144 S. 9th St.).
