Mexican food goes gastro-pub at this appealing South Philly cantina. The tattooed hipsters come for killer margaritas in the moody orange room, tequila-ficionados find a stellar list of primo shots at the bar, and a talented new chef has upped the kitchen's burrito ambitions with both a trendy nuevo touch (seviches) and authentically rustic braised meats (baby goat).
Nachos; tuna seviche special; pork picadillo empanadas; goat tacos; cactus (nopales) salad; turkey with mole; roast baby goat; suckling pig with hominy and pumpkin; grilled corn on the cob; chocolate-chile mousse.
Super margaritas are the main event, as are the nearly 40 high-end tequilas. There's also a decent selection of craft beers, plus a small but smart list of inexpensive Spanish and South American wines.
