Feeling spicy this week? Head down to 13th and Sansom and try out Steven Starr’s Mexican eatery El Vez. This fun, vibrant restaurant with an incredible bar (and really good margaritas!) is a perfect spot for a dinner with friends. Try one of their mouth-watering guacamoles, the Nacho Mama (or Macho Nachos for meat-eaters), or delicious rice and beans or plantains. The chicken Tacos al Carbon are the winner though – they’re basically like fajitas, but super sized! You’ll get a kick out of this place – in your mind and in your mouth.
Truffle guacamole is sophisticated and so good.
The best Tacos al Carbon.
