Taco Tuesdays at Lolita are back. For only $20, each guest has a choice of four different tacos: grilled skirt steak, beer braised pork shoulder, seared wild mushrooms, and grilled chicken borracha. After that, every guest will receive avocado-tomatillo salsa, roasted tomato-chipotle salsa, jicama & orange salad, mexican beans, arroz amarillo, and fresh corn tortillas.
Remember, it’s BYOT, so bring your best bottle, bring cash, and in the immortal words of Stateside’s George Sabatino on the Philadelphia episode of The Layover, “…get ripped on tequila and eat f**king carnitas all night.”

So that was fun. Anthony Bourdain finally came to Philadelphia and last night The Layover showed the country that yes, Philadelphia is a lot more than cheesesteaks and Rocky. The show captured our spirit, our accents and our many tattoos. It was good television and enjoyable to see our city in such a good light.

Anthony Bourdain closed out his second night of filming The Layover in fine fashion, drinking a shot of hot dog water from the Pen & Pencil, after losing a spirited game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to Michael Solomonov.
Bourdain also filmed segments at Solomonov’s Zahav and Stateside. It was a big day for Stateside’s George Sabatino who also received a Best of Philly award for Best Chef.
And of course earlier in the day Bourdain was at Pho 75, Han Dynasty and Chef Ken’s Cafe.
We just got off the phone with Ken Roberts of Chef Ken’s Cafe in Mount Airy, who confirms that Anthony Bourdain was just at the Germantown Avenue Southern and Soul restaurant, shooting a segment for his Philadelphia episode of The Layover.
Chef Ken’s has been open since 2005 on the same block that has been the long time home of McMennamin’s and more recently, Earth Bread + Brewery. For more on Chef Ken (a former executive chef at the Venetian in Las Vegas), check out this 2011 profile by occasional Foobooz contributor Lou Mancinelli.

For lunch Bourdain ate lunch at the Old City location of Sichuan hot spot, Han Dynasty. We saw this one coming as Bourdain hung out with Han Chiang last night at Dirty Frank’s.
Since then he’s gone dark but we expect he’s showing up at a Solomonov spot tonight, but which one, Zahav, Percy Street BBQ or Federal Donuts?
Where will Bourdain pop up next?
In the past month Anthony Bourdain has shot episodes of his Travel Channel show the Layover in Chicago, Toronto and Seattle. In each of those cities the air date has been reported as fall of 2012 or early 2013. So we’d expect the same timeframe for the Philadelphia episode of The Layover.
Yesterday Bourdain filmed in at least six locations:
- DiBruno Bros. (Italian Market Location)
- Paesano’s (9th Street Location)
- Mütter Museum
- Barnes Foundation
- Dirty Frank’s
Today he’s tweeted that breakfast is at Pho 75.
