Taqueria Veracruzana

As an L.A. native, I have difficulty finding good Mexican food. I was in Philadelphia on Sunday and went to Taqueria Veracruzana. Gosh it was fantastic. They have some of the best tacos I've ever had. I had the pork with pineapple and the chicken. Oh the tortillas! Oh the pork! Oh the chicken! It was fantastic. I loved the green salsa but not the red salsa (not enough flavor to overcome it's greasiness.

  1. Next time, head down 9th street a couple blocks to Los Taquitos de Puebla, they are the best I've had. Nothing against Veracruzana of course, but they don't do tacos al pastor as far as I know..

      I've had the tacos al pastor at Veracruzana before -- yummy crunchy edges of pork with the grilled pineapple. They may be available only on the weekends, which is typically when I've been. I haven't been in a while, but do report back.

        The Al Pastor rocks !! You can also order off the breakfast menu anytime. The Enchiladas Verde are an amazing bargain !!

        If they don't have Al Pastor, order Carnitas, You won;t be disappointed !

    2. Any fish tacos at Taqueria Veracruzana?
