The Taqueria La Veracruzana has long been a favorite of ours for authentic Puebla-style Mexican.

Much as I enjoy El Limon and the Norristown taquerias, La Veracruzana at 9th and Washington has not disappointed in a decade. Brilliant consistency visit to visit. This alambre is $13 (it was $12 a decade ago.) Ham, chicken, onions, peppers, pineapple and Oaxaca cheese served with fresh hot tortillas, Mexican rice and frijoles refritos. Wife had the Enchiladas Verdes at 8 bucks. Seriously a bargain.
