Earlier this month we told you Benjamin Miller and his wife Cristina Martinez were looking to open a South Philadelphia Barbacoa at 1002 Watkins Street. The couple was to have a neighborhood zoning meeting regarding the project this week but the snow has pushed that to Monday, January 27th.

This Sunday however, Miller and Martinez will be selling their barbacoa from a food cart outside Mexican bakery Los Rosa’s at 8th and Watkins. The cart will open at 7 a.m. and will be serving till everything is sold out.


Brion Shreffler (who chased barbacoa for City Paper back in 2011) has more on his food blog, Food Junkets. Check it out for more on the couple's plans for a South Philly Barbacoa.
