Chef Mike Stollenwerk reviews Chilaquiles at
"Want to fill your stomach after a long night? When I'm starving, I go to El Jarocho, a little taqueria in South Philly, for its fiery, saucy chilaquiles. It's the best brunch ever."
Chef Scott Schroeder reviews Enfrijoladas at
"This is a steak and egg breakfast at its finest, and cheaper than anywhere else! Three egg-and-ham-filled tortillas covered in refried beans, queso fresco, cream, and thin steak with rajas (roasted peppers) piled on top. Too good for $12."
Chef Mitch Prensky reviews Tongue tacos at
"El Jarocho is my go-to taco spot. Some of my team at Supper are from Puebla, Mexico and they turned me on to this tiny place with the really big flavors. The braised tongue tacos are like a great cross-cultural Jewish/Mexican food experiment for me (I grew up eating a lot of tongue in kosher delis with my grandfather), and the house-made salsas are the best."
Chef Monica Glass reviews Carnitas & chorizo tacos at
"Every time I go to El Jarocho, I swear that I'm going to try something different, but I'm way too enamored by the tacos, particularly the carnitas and spicy chorizo. With meat so succulent that the juices dribble down your chin and corn tortillas loaded with cilantro, onions, and lime, this is authentic Mexican that satisfies this gringo's craving."
