S. Philly. Not Italian or Asian

  • 2

Need some suggestions for a group of 6 going out after cirque in May. Could go into town, but thinking there might be something fun in the neighborhood. We've hit all the best Italian places and a couple in the group aren't into any of the Asian cuisines. Looking for something more like a gastro-pub or Mexican. Been to SPTR and it's a great beer bar, but the food was a little lacking. Any ideas?

  1. The POPE
    Cantina los Caballitos
    Devil's Den (haven't eaten there yet though)
    Plaza Garibaldi
    Tacqueria Veracruzana
    Los Taquitos de Puebla

    If you'd rather go to a bar, the Cantina is good, so is the POPE. I had a couple beers at Devil's Den, their beer list is very good but I didn't eat anything so I can't comment on the food.

    If I were you I'd go to Plaza Garibaldi, the only thing is that it's BYO and I doubt you'll be toting a bottle into Cirque. I don't think there are any Mexican places around there that serve booze (other than the Cantina, which is Americanized Mexican).
