Los Taquitos de Puebla
Los Taquitos de Puebla
1149 South 9th Street, 215-334-0664
Type: Taqueria

This no-frills (on a recent visit, we watched as cases of cactus leaves, sweet onions, and avocados were wheeled from the front door through the dining room and into the kitchen) storefront on 9th Streetís not-just-Italian Market serves up deliciously authentic ó and fresh (see above) ó Mexican fare. Hot chilies are used liberally and the salsa stings, and their spit-roasted savory and sweet tacos al pastor (shaved pork with bits of pineapple in a homemade tortilla) are the best in the city.
