Owners and chefs Rebecca Baez and Omar Martinez will finally be opening up a brick-and-mortar version of their popular pop-up taco cart at 413 East Girard Avenue in Fishtown. The plan has been in the works since the fall of last year, but the restaurant is going to become a reality in the near future.

The current pop-up menu will be the main menu for the restaurant as they open. You’ll see all the favorites, like the classic tacos: with chicken, carnitas, steak, and chorizo, the specialty tacos: shrimp, beef birria, al pastor, and tinga vegana, or the vegan version of the tinga taco that is usually made with chicken or beef and a red sauce. The tinga vegana uses oyster mushrooms. The restaurant will also add tortas, a Mexican-style sandwich, churros, and daily specials. As for drinks, the restaurant will not serve alcohol but will have Aguas Frescas like limonadas, horchata, and agua de jamaica which is a sweet hibiscus drink.

The owners told What Now Philadelphia, when we reached them by phone, that they also hope to start offering breakfast items “after we get into the swing of things” and that their planned hours of operation will be 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
