Passyunk Square’s El Chingon is an all-day Mexican cafe and BYOB restaurant. It’s a plant-filled corner spot perfect for grabbing coffee and conchas before work, or sharing a bunch of tacos and tostadas on a casual date night. The menu is extensive, but the real specialty here are the Pueblan-style cemita sandwiches. We can’t stop thinking about the Clasica, which comes stacked with crisp fried buttermilk chicken, avocado, chipotle peppers, and stringy, salty quesillo cheese, all on housemade rolls. Chingon’s chef/owner started the bread program at Parc, so you know those buns are good.
