This past Sunday, 7 Foodspotters, including myself, braved the rain and participated in Philly Foodspotting’s longest crawl yet. The South Philly Taco Crawl that took place consisted of five stops in the following order: Tres Jalapeños, La Veracruzana, Taqueria Los Taquitos de Puebla, La Lupe, and El Jarocho.
Since there were 7 of us and 5 stops, we decided to order a couple tacos at each place and split them up so we could try a little bit of everything.
Throughout the evening, several different types of tacos were consumed from al pastor (marinated pork w/ pineapple) to carnitas (pork). Vegetarian friendly options like portabella and cheese tacos were also enjoyed. The most interesting ones that we got to try were the jalapeños rellenos de queso (stuffed jalapeños w/ cheese) from La Veracruzana and nopales con queso (cactus & cheese) from Taqueria Los Taquitos de Puebla. The tastiest tacos were the barbacoa lamb ones from El Jarocho. At the end, some of us even stopped by a nearby 7-Eleven…for a Choco Taco!
Thanks to all who came out despite the unpleasant weather, it surely was a great time!
