With a mezcal and tequila list as long as the line around the Rocky statue, and a kitchen that (unlike most places in the city) stays open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, this South Philly cantina is a place we go to for a celebratory round of margaritas, cochinita tacos, and Mexican street corn. Start your night off light with a shrimp and scallop aguachile verde which mixes refreshing cucumber and lime juice with spicy habanero peppers, and then move on to their juicy pan-seared branzino that comes topped with tomato sauce, olives, capers, and bell peppers. Eat it all at their bar, with neon pink Batman logos behind it, or on their covered outdoor streetery.
