Iron Chef Jose Garces brings a taste of Mexico City to University City at this two-story hotspot. The street-level taqueria offers a casual and approachable menu; upstairs, diners can munch on small plates of modern Mexican fare. The restaurant’s location invites a loyal following of students from nearby University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, who love the gourmet tacos, burritos and more than 100 varieties of tequila. Insider tip: For a truly unique experience, request the four-seat booth built into a real Volkswagon Beetle.
