  • Lunch
  • Quick Eats
  • Serious Take-Out Operation
  • Vegans

Some things we’ll never forget: waking up early in the morning to clean the house on Saturdays as children, the Phillies 2008 championship, and the first bite of the birria tacos and ramen from Juana Tamale.

With mounds of queso, stewed beef, and green onions swimming throughout the consomme, the ramen is both gooey and soupy all at the same time. And the queso birria taco that comes with each order has corn tortillas that are flavorful from being grilled in skimmed fat and crispy enough to sop up the broth without losing any of their texture.

They’re only open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and have a small dining space, but their salads, tacos, vegan wings, and churros are so good that we’d eat them next to the bike rack at the East Passyunk Gateway if we had to.
