Taqueria Feliz Now Open in Horsham
Chef Tim Spinner and business partner Brian Sirhal have brought Mexican to the ‘burbs with the opening of their fourth contemporary Mexican restaurant, Taqueria Feliz. The restaurant took the place of Pizzeria Felici in Horsham, the Neopolitan-style pizzeria they nixed after deciding to stick with Mexican.
The new restaurant has a much larger kitchen than the original Taqueria Feliz in Manayunk, so the menu is more extensive. The wood-fired oven is perfect for making their spins of classic taqueria dishes like crab and lentil enchiladas, tempura battered fish tacos, tlayudas (Mexican-style pizza) and their signature Feliz carnitas tacos. For the kids, there’s also a “Little Amigos Menu.” Because this is the ‘burbs, after all.
Feliz has a long list of appetizers including their homemade quacamole and a number of other creative guacs like chicharone guacamole with crispy chicken skins, charred scallions, and chili honey glaze.
Behind the bar are over fifty different tequilas to choose from (as if figuring out what margarita to get isn’t a challenge enough), ten beers on tap, bottled and canned beer, and you can drink these up while watching a game on one of their flat screens.
Just like the other three of Spinner and Sirhal’s Feliz restaurants, the work of South Philadelphia artist Alison Dilworth is featured on the walls—her Dia De Los Muertes mural in the bar and dining room adds color to the rustic, festive restaurant.
For now, Taqueria Feliz starts dinner service at 3 p.m. on weekdays and 4 p.m. on weekends, but lunch will also be offered starting Monday, February 1st. There will be a pretty good lunch special going on too—you can get two courses plus fountain soda or iced tea for $14.94 (the same special applies at Spinner and Sirhal’s fancier Mexican place, Cantina Feliz, in Ft. Washington).
Now that Mexican is on your mind (I know it’s on mine), you can go get your taco on at 303 Horsham Road in the Elements Shopping Center.
