la esperanza – lengua tacos


These lengua tacos were so far the best I’ve had! The lengua was much more tender and cut into bigger pieces. The tortillas were also a lot softer and larger. This is all compared to my previous lengua taco experience.


different sauces

They served two different sauces with the tacos. One was a less spicy green sauce and the red was much spicer with a base of chipotles in adobo. Both were pretty tasty.

It’s kind of a hike from Philly and a still a good walk from the Lindenwold PATCO station, but worth checking out if you’re in the area! I wanna come back again. The carnitas tacos sounded pretty good but the lengua won me over. Will definitely order those next time.

la guadalupana – lengua taco


A lengua taco has been on my to-eat list for a while now. I’m not opposed or appalled by the consumption of tongue. It’s just that I’ve never had the opportunity to try it. Luckily, a friend of mine was down for lunch and we went to a place he often gets lengua tacos.


They started us off with homemade tortilla chips topped with refried beans and queso fresco accompanied with a hot sauce. The tacos came out soon afterwards and they were delicious! The lengua was tasty and I’m totally ordering these again.

Don’t be scared of tongue. Go out and try some.

honest tom’s taco shop


Since I had an early morning, (I had to make it on time to spectate/photograph the Philly Half Marathon) I did not get to eat much, if anything at all. It was a good couple hours until it was finished and thanks to Twitter, I found out that Honest Tom’s was nearby at the Callowhill Whole Foods!


breakfast tacos

I’ve been following them on Twitter for quite some time and have constantly read about them, so there was definitely some excitement built up already. It was still brunch hour, so they were offering breakfast tacos. They consisted of scrambled eggs, home fries, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and guacamole. Delicious.

Next mission: Try their fish tacos!
