Where We’re Eating: Taqueria Feliz

It used to be that Mexican restaurants could get away with being pretty shitty, just because almost all of them were pretty shitty. Since there wasn’t much good to compare the bad to, we basically had to take what we could get. But the folks behind the Feliz group of restaurants — first Fort Washington’s Best of Philly-winning Cantina Feliz, then Fairmount’s La Calaca Feliz, and now this new Manayunk derivation — continue to raise the bar. Grab a group of friends and feast on fish tacos, red snapper and lamb barbacoa. As a nice bonus, all specialty cocktails and margaritas are under $10.

The Bell Rings Twice for Taqueria Feliz

Craig LaBan visits Manayunk’s Taqueria Feliz where he is generally impressed with what’s coming out of Lucio Palazzo’s kitchen, grasshoppers and all. But the reason to go, is Palazzo’s lamb barbacoa.

Palazzo’s true destination masterpiece, though, his lamb barbacoa, is considerably more accessible. Rubbed for days in a mulato chile paste aromatic with canella and charred onion, smoked over cherrywood, then baked six hours inside banana leaves over chickpeas, it’s a Mexican cousin to the legendary lamb shoulder at Zahav, where he once worked. It’s very much worthy of the legacy – sublimely tender on the bone over refried beans and plancha-seared nopales strips, with a soulful lamb and chickpea consommé on the side.

Taqueria Feliz from Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal (Cantina Feliz, La Calaca Feliz) opens this afternoon at 4 p.m. at 4410 Main Street. Lucio Palazzo mans the kitchen at this 85-seat bar and restaurant and will be serving up a menu of classic Mexican taqueria dishes with a “Feliz” spin.

Like the other two Felizs, Taqueria Feliz has a bright color palette throughout and murals by artist Alison Dilworth. The exterior is a vibrant surfer blue and lime that stands out.
