Adelita has a massive menu–like the Star Wars opening crawl massive–and they’re solid at everything they serve. The tacos are phenomenal, the cemita sandwiches house your chicken or pork in warm pillows of fresh bread on each side, and we’ve put their chilaquiles at the top of our desert island list. On the same block as South Philly Barbacoa and Casa Mexico, it can get crowded with people who couldn’t get into those places but still want fresh masa, mole, and tortillas topped with stewed meat. Everything on the menu is available for takeout, so we recommend grabbing tacos and a tamarind soda to go.
