We remember back when Taqueria La Veracruzana opened. It was late 2001 and we had just moved to Philadelphia from New York. All we wanted were some traditional, Mexican tacos—the kind that come in soft corn tortillas and are garnished with not much more than cilantro and radish on the side. But we couldn’t find them without a trip to deep North Philly. We were crushed.
Don’t get us wrong… There were some places serving quality American-style tacos. But we wanted more than shredded yellow cheddar cheese and iceberg lettuce.
Than Veracruzana opened and they were just a few blocks away from our apartment in South Philly. We were happy.
Foodzings just stopped by Veracruzana and took some top-notch pictures. Have an al pastor taco for us next time you’re there, alright?
