Just wanted to recommend two taquerias - Quetzally on Fitzwater between 12th and 13th, and Mole Poblano on 9th near Ellsworth.

Quetzally, in particular is a little under the radar, on a block next to a church where you might not give it a second look. Do yourself a favor, order a bunch of stuff, invite some friends over, and stuff your face with some of the best guacamole, tacos, sopes and tostadas in town.

  1. Quetzally is my son's favorite. We picked up some beer at Hawthornes and went with him not long ago. Ordered several dishes, all great.

    1. Good to know.. We have habitually gone to Veracruzana (or Norristown,) Looking to try something new.

        The tiny El Limon in Frazer is worth the drive.

      2. In South Philly, I still lave Los Gallos (10th & Wolf) as my #1 taqueria.

          Me too. Though I still like Veracruzana's salsas and carnitas better than Los Gallos.

            Taqueria La Michoacana in Norristown has beer and brandy braised carnitas that I like even better...
