La Chingonita

$$$$(484) 452-3344
Hours:MONDAYClosed

When you’re having a bunch of people over or don’t plan on going grocery shopping for a week, consider La Chingonita’s Try It All Box. It’s like a greatest hits album for this Fishtown Mexican spot that has two birria, two tinga vegana, and two suadero tacos, two stalks of street corn dripping in crema, two tacos dorados, and two classic tortas all for $55. The box is easily a front runner for the tastiest thing we’ve eaten in months and makes for a standout large-format meal. But the casual spot also has things like cinnamony and doughy churros, tostadas, loaded burritos with proteins like shrimp (our favorite) and carnitas, and flavorful tacos that are so packed that you might struggle to finish all three that come in an order. Come here the next time you’re looking for an actually exciting quick meal, or stop by and look out on Girard Ave. while going knuckles deep in some brothy consomme.
