Bon Appetit has announced its annual Hot 10 list of the best new restaurants in America and Philadelphia’s South Philly Barbacoa placed 6th on the list. Deputy editor Andrew Knowlton and senior editor Julia Kramer traveled more than 5,700 miles to more than 40 cities to create this list of the best new restaurants in the country.
South Philly Barbacoa, the Mexican food cart sensation from Ben Miller and Cristina Martinez is getting a storefront. The cart has been a weekend destination at 8th and Watkins since early 2014. But Saturday was the cart’s last service at 8th and Watkins. But on the very good side, Miller and Martinez are going to be getting a storefront at 1703 S 11th Street, the former home of Vegan Commissary.
South Philly Barbacoa [Foobooz]
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.
