A few restaurants to visit this Mexican Restaurant Week, as Philly’s Mexican Week kicks off on Sunday


In affiliation with Mexican Week, Mexican Restaurant Week returns to Philadelphia starting this Saturday, April 30.

Mexican Restaurant Week will coincide with Cinco de Mayo later this week.

Presented by the Mexican Cultural Center, Philly’s Mexican Restaurant Week will continue throughout the week until Saturday, May 6.

The Mexican Cultural Center is a non-profit organization promoting awareness and education about Mexico’s cultural and artistic richness, and in particular its influence on the Delaware Valley region.

In 2010, Mexican cuisine was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

UNESCO specializes in education, culture, science and international cooperation as means of “bringing people and nations together” to achieve global peace and security. UNESCO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.

Nineteen restaurants are participating in Mexican Restaurant Week this year.

Participating restaurants include: Adelita, Alma del Mar, Bugambilias, Café y Chocolate, Cantina La Martina, Casa México, El Mezcal Cantina and Izzy´s 33.

La Llorona Cantina, La Mula Terca, Mole Poblano, Nemi, Philly, Tacos, San Lucas, Si, Tamalex, Taqueria Morales, La Ingrata Camden and Los Taquitos de Puebla are also participating.

Another list of restaurant phone numbers and addresses is available on the Mexican Cultural Center website.

The Mexican Cultural Center notes that due to high demand, some restaurants may not be able to accommodate all requests for “special menu” items on Cinco de Mayo.

The association suggests contacting restaurants directly to confirm availability.
