Elisa Ludwig finds lots to rave about in her review of Las Bugambilias, the South Street Mexican restaurant by Carlos Molina, a former chef at Tequila’s in Center City.

Both in atmosphere and menu offerings, Las Bugambilias fills an important niche in Philly’s Mexican restaurant continuum. It’s got the by-the-book authenticity of any of South Philly’s taquerias as well as the more gracious, have-a-few vibe of Molina’s former place of employment. Here, you have the best of both worlds — the closest equivalent might be Northern Liberties’ Las Cazuelas, but Las Bugambilias has the advantage of a bar.
